The care team will be able to act on patient-reported outcomes quickly and intervene with high risk patients in a way we haven’t been able to before.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 25, 2017
Navigating Cancer and Oncology Consultants are excited to announce their new partnership to implement Navigating Cancer’s technology platform. The platform will give Oncology Consultants’ care team new tools to deliver better care to cancer patients, while lowering costs and improving outcomes.
Founded over 35 years ago, Oncology Consultants is the leader in cancer care with 18 providers treating patients in 10 locations across the Houston area. The practice continues to thrive even in the face of growing competition and challenging business conditions in part due to their willingness to anticipate needs, adopt new technologies and participate in experimental programs including the Oncology Care Model. Implementing Navigating Cancer’s oncology-specific patient relationship management platform is the next step in their evolution to leverage technology, deliver the best care possible and continue to be a leading care provider.
“We are really excited, in particular, about Health Tracker along with the Triage and Symptom Management Pathways functionalities of the platform,” said Alti Rahman, MHA/MBA, CSSBB, Oncology Consultant’s Practice Administrator. “With a comprehensive patient view and validated pathways to use in evaluating patient issues, the care team will be able to act on patient-reported outcomes quickly and intervene with high risk patients in a way we haven’t been able to before.”
The platform’s Population Health functionality, which is currently in development, is also expected to be a great tool for Oncology Consultants as they continue to shift to value-based care. Gena Cook, CEO of Navigating Cancer said, “Oncology Consultants is already delivering really high quality care to their patients. Our platform will enable them to deliver that same personalized care in a systematic way, serving defined population groups. We are excited to incorporate feedback and ideas from this innovative practice as we continue to build out the rest of our population health technology.”
