In our search for a solution to revamp our triage process to help patients in a more timely way, Navigating Cancer emerged as the best tool for us.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) February 06, 2019
Alliance Cancer Specialists (ACS) is the largest community-based team of cancer experts in Southeastern Pennsylvania. It leverages the combined strength and broad expertise of 22 oncologists from four area practices to provide the highest level of service to patients in the Delaware Valley.
As a growing practice and a participant in the Oncology Care Model, ACS identified Navigating Cancer’s Patient Relationship Management platform as the best technology for both better care coordination as well as patient engagement. The Navigating Cancer PRM helps care teams quickly manage symptoms using integrated pathways with standing orders, captures discrete data and offers robust reporting, which are essential for success in value-based care payment models. The platform’s patient engagement tools, including personalized, automated education and the collection of patient-reported outcomes will also be important as the practice focuses on improving the patient care experience while reducing costs and improving outcomes.
“In our search for a solution to revamp our triage process to help patients in a more timely way, Navigating Cancer emerged as the best tool for us,” said Jodi Adams, Chief Operating Officer for ACS. “The platform will not only have a positive impact on our triage process by prioritizing patient needs for effective management and intervention, it also offers activity tracking, task automation and reporting that will help us get smarter about resource allocation and give us the tools we need moving forward in a complex healthcare landscape.”
Bill Bunker, CEO of Navigating Cancer, said of the partnership, “Our core mission is to improve the lives of cancer patients and we are thrilled to partner with Alliance, a practice that is leveraging technology to transform patient experiences.”
