WELLESLEY, Mass., Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/-- New Century Health's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Medical Officer participated as faculty panelists in several sessions on the first day of the Cancer Center Business Summit in Las Vegas, NV. The two-day conference, with over 400 attendees, explored the issues associated with Transforming the Business of Oncology Through Science and Technology.
In an afternoon session focused on Achieving Scale Through Practice Mergers & Collaborative Networks, Atul Dhir, MD, DPhil, Chief Executive Officer at New Century Health (NCH), along with other participating panelists, shared perspectives on the opportunities and challenges facing many oncology practices. Dr. Dhir characterized the current oncology practice landscape as evolutionary as oncology practices are navigating the transition to a value-based delivery. He noted that "as practices evaluate their strategic options, they should differentiate between consolidation and integration. Rather that developing all the capabilities required to manage population health risk in-house, practices should consider technology-enabled solutions that enable oncologists to focus on what they are really good at – delivering evidence-based care."
Earlier in the day, one of the conference's morning sessions focused on Clinical Pathways: With What Result? The panel's faculty of medical and radiation oncologists addressed how the use of clinical pathways has created value and also changed clinical practice in oncology. During the engaging discussion, NCH's Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Andrew Hertler, commented that "the next generation of clinical support tools will integrate the necessary clinical and financial data required for effective value-based oncology care."
