Whether they are a part of a large cancer center in a metropolitan hospital or a small three-person practice in Montana, oncologists are all faced with the same challenge—delivering the best cancer care possible while reining in rising costs. One answer that many oncologists are looking at: cancer management systems.
“The challenge we face in health care in general, but in oncology in particular, is the rising costs of care,” said Kathy Lokay, chief executive officer of D3 Oncology Solutions, which offers the Via Oncology Pathways system to community and academic oncologists. “Payers are becoming aggressive in trying to get these costs under control.”
