Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 18, 2015
Enormous advances are being made in the treatment of cancer, but cancer treatments are expensive — the average monthly cost for a cancer drug has doubled to $10,000 — and a high level of payer-provider collaboration is needed to implement complex care regimens and new options for provider contracting and reimbursement. Participants in Atlantic Information Services, Inc.’s (AIS) upcoming July 30 virtual conference “Oncology Management 2015: Innovative Strategies for Health Plans and Providers,” will learn about strategies such as pathway programs, evidence-based medicine and oncology patient-centered medical homes.
In one information-packed afternoon, participants will hear from some of the top oncology thought leaders at health plans, oncology provider groups and benefit management companies about:
- The most effective oncology management strategies in use today
- How Anthem is using clinical pathways to improve outcomes and reduce costs
- Strategies Aetna is employing to deliver increased value through oncology management
- How the oncology patient-centered medical home is improving the delivery of cancer care as it reduces waste
Additionally, each of the virtual conference’s four sessions will conclude with generous time allocated to answering individual questions.
AIS’s virtual conference allows participants to attend a live conference without having to travel to a meeting site. Plus, the registration fee includes a free On-Demand recording of each session, so any agenda items can be reviewed at a later time.
