Although cancer is the No. 2 killer in the United States, significant progress is being made in the fight against it.  Scientific research has resulted in new targeted and immunotherapies that are making a dent in the death rate for the first time, against even some of the “tough to treat” cancers.  Much of this progress is based on the use of multi-modal cancer therapies.  However, this multi-modal treatment approach is threatened by increasing trends toward separate contracting/capitation for the various parts of oncology care.  Solutions require collaboration between the scientific, medical, healthcare system, and payor communities.

Join us to learn more about options in cancer treatment!
