Managed Care Best Practices in Oncology Management

Managed Care Best Practices in Oncology Management

Cancer, in its various types and presentations, is the number 2 killer in the United States. For managed care companies, access to and availability of cancer care itself and the attendant costs of such care will present an increasingly substantial managed challenge. This publication serves as an important educational tool for managed care professionals, pharmacists, and other health care decision makers so that informed decisions can be made regarding drugs, devices, and procedures utilized when treating patients with cancer.

Highlights:

  • Issues in Oncology Management
  • The Current Landscape of Oncology in Managed Care
  • The Process of Care
  • Protocols and Working With Oncologists
  • Pharmacy and Cancer Care
  • Managing Oncology Agents: An HMO’s Perspective

Based on an expert roundtable discussion conducted in Salt Lake City, Utah, this supplement focuses on collaboration and communication as key principles for ensuring the highest quality of patient care. Case studies that discuss typical patients encountered in the oncology field are also presented.
