As cancer survivor rates continue to improve, the NIH’s Office of Cancer Survivorship is promoting a vision of integrating survivorship concepts across the stages of cancer care.
Learn how you can improve both your navigation program and patient health outcomes in this article from Oncology Nurse Advisor.
Technology and analytics, connected with care will reduce redundancy and drive down cost.
A new study published in Cancer demonstrates how a survivorship program improves cancer patients’ quality of life & satisfaction.
Data analytics — including both EHR and subjective patient-reported data — are key to successful population health management.
Health organizations are recognizing how vital population health initiatives are for connecting with patients and advancing positive health outcomes.
Population health management is gaining traction. Factors driving care providers to focus on population health managment include: “improved health outcomes, improved patient experience, cost containment, increased revenue opportunity, and competition with other hospitals in the same market.”
A study presented at the 2015 ASCO Annual Meeting suggests that patient navigation programs reduce costs and minimize required healthcare resources for care providers.
A new study highlights the ability of patient navigation programs to reduce operating expenses for care providers. “Navigators have the potential to identify patient needs, communicate with the care team, and contribute to better care and lower health care costs.”
Patient Navigation Programs (PNP) have been shown to improve patient outcomes and increase patient satisfaction. A study presented at the 2015 ASCO Annual Meeting demonstrates how a PNP improved survival, early-stage diagnosis, and various other clinical variables among patients in the Colombian Health Care System.
