Bruce Feinberg, DO, Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions, says that the healthcare system today is fragmented, if not broken. Therefore, stakeholders are looking for options to produce a "win, win, win" scenario. They want better patient outcomes, lower costs while driving stakeholder satisfaction. "We think pathways offer that, and that's very much what we published at ASCO in Evidence-Based Oncology," said Dr Feinberg. "Physicians actually had higher reimbursement, payers had lower overall cost, and patients had better outcomes as reflected by fewer ER visits and lower rates of hospitalization."
