(PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Physician Resource Management, Inc. (PRM) welcomes the addition of one of the nation’s leading oncologists, Douglas Blayney, M.D., to their management service organization. As Senior Medical Advisor for the organization, he will lead the development of clinically based protocols that will provide improved therapy management for physicians prescribing oral oncolytics that are dispensed through a specialty pharmacy.
Dr. Blayney has built an extensive career beginning as a community-based physician and expanding his clinical expertise to become an academic leader in developing research based cancer care programs. He currently serves as the Medical Director of the Stanford Cancer Center. Blayney became well acquainted with the PRM executive team while spending 7 years at the University of Michigan participating in several quality improvement initiatives that gained national attention. Dr. Blayney has achieved collegial endorsements as a practicing medical oncologist, associate professor of clinical medicine, member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network board of directors, editorial board for Journal of Clinical Oncology and founding editor-in-chief of the Journal of Oncology Practice, and member of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Oncology Drugs Advisory Committee.
PRM has aligned with Axium Healthcare Pharmacy to provide a comprehensive oncology therapy management program for community-based oncologists. The program will assist medical oncologists in providing better patient care and practice efficiencies by alleviating gaps in service and communications that oncology practices often encounter when managing therapies that include specialty medications. The program will incorporate the protocols developed by Dr. Blayney to provide integrated patient support and therapy visibility across the continuum of care.
