SEATTLE, July 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Navigating Cancer, developer of the most comprehensive, patient-centered platform for oncology, announced today that Texas Oncology will use its innovative tools to provide patients better care by empowering its physicians and staff to elevate overall practice performance. The company's Navigating Care platform, a premier patient relationship management solution, will support Texas Oncology in the delivery of value based cancer care.
Texas Oncology, a practice in The US Oncology Network, provides patients high-quality cancer care, including access to leading-edge treatment and technology as well as clinical trials. Texas Oncology is a participant in the Oncology Care Model and several other value based care programs. With more than 460 physicians, this large practice needed a technology-based solution to deliver timely, consistent telephone triage support and symptom management for its patients.
"We want to ensure that our patients are receiving the highest quality of care across all of our locations. Navigating Cancer's real-time work boards will give our care team unprecedented visibility into what's happening with our patients," said Dr. Lalan Wilfong, executive vice president of value based care and quality programs at Texas Oncology.
Texas Oncology also recognizes the impact that Navigating Cancer's remote monitoring program, Health Tracker, will have for its patients. Health Tracker helps care teams track medication adherence and side effect management.
"In cancer care, patient-reported outcomes are key to improving overall outcomes and patient satisfaction," said Dr. Wilfong. "We want to give patients an easy way to communicate with us about any concerns or issues they have with their treatment as soon as they arise. The more we know, and the sooner we know it, the more we can do to better support our patients."
Navigating Cancer's software allows Texas Oncology's care teams to stay connected to each other and their patients, improve productivity with streamlined workflows, and ultimately deliver better care.
"Our experience implementing our solutions for other practices in The US Oncology Network gives us confidence that Navigating Cancer's technology can streamline caregiving for Texas Oncology," said Navigating Cancer's CEO Bill Bunker.
"Simply put," said Bunker, "our technology makes providing better care easier, less costly and more reliable for providers and their staff, but cancer patients are the real beneficiaries. At its core, our solution is designed to make their care experience easier and more effective."
