SEATTLE (PRWEB) December 02, 2020
Navigating Cancer, the developer of the most broadly deployed patient relationship management (PRM) platform in oncology, today announced that Arizona Oncology will deploy the Navigating Cancer platform to streamline triage and standardize care across all practices regardless of the EMR and practice location.
Arizona Oncology is one of the largest cancer centers in Arizona, with more than 65 practicing physicians and 40 advanced practice providers devoted exclusively to the most comprehensive, compassionate and quality cancer care specialized in breast surgical oncology, medical, gynecologic, and radiation oncology, hematology, stem cell transplant, research, genetic risk assessment and patient ancillary programs. Arizona Oncology is also part of the US Oncology Network, one of the nation's largest healthcare services networks dedicated exclusively to cancer treatment and research.
“We wanted to partner with Navigating Cancer because we share a common vision in the value of engaging patients throughout their cancer journey,” said Dr. Donald Brooks, MD. “The advanced digital health tools available in the Navigating Cancer platform will help us stay in better communication with our patients remotely across their full course of care and follow-up, and also better target and support high-risk populations across our entire network,” Brooks added.
The Navigating Cancer solution includes the Health Tracker program for collecting and managing electronic Patient-Reported Outcomes (ePRO). Health Tracker enables providers to monitor patients remotely and deliver proactive care when needed, helping patients avoid unnecessary hospital visits and further protecting vulnerable patients undergoing cancer treatment. Health Tracker is an integrated part of Navigating Cancer’s Patient Monitoring solution, which also enables care teams to collect patient assessments and surveys using validated instruments.
“Our goal is to work closely with cancer providers throughout the country to bring together better, more coordinated care in the fastest way possible in a way that delivers a high level of patient satisfaction” said Bill Bunker, CEO of Navigating Cancer. “We are enthusiastic about our partnership with the entire US Oncology Network, including large community-based practices like Arizona Oncology, to help support more coordinated care across multiple geographies while reducing costs,” Bunker added.
The mission of Arizona Oncology is to increase access to high-quality cancer care while delivering the best possible outcomes for patients, delivering care for the whole person and not just the disease. In partnership with Navigating Cancer, Arizona Oncology will be able to connect with patients on mobile devices, tablets at home or in the office, or on the web across 28 locations throughout Arizona.
