June 1st, 2016 by Melanie Matthews

There are several distinct elements of a phone call that will determine a patient’s experience, according to the Baird Group, which conducts mystery-shopping assessments via the phone.

Coordinated Care Models Needed for Cancer Care

Overall satisfaction among cancer patients and caregivers with the care they received has improved significantly since the 2012, according to new data from the 2015 Cancer Experience: A National Study of Patients and Caregivers, reflected in a new infographic.

The survey results also mirror the ongoing national healthcare debate and reveal significant gaps between patients’ expectations and the quality of care they receive. While having access to advanced oncology therapies is important, survey respondents indicated that healthcare providers need to address their dissatisfaction with the lack of care coordination, confusion and frustration surrounding healthcare terminology (literacy), and the inability to obtain timely information from their care team.

The infographic drills down on these survey results and examines how healthcare providers can respond to these patient concerns.

Anthem's Cancer Care Quality Program: Pathways to Improve Care and Reduce CostsDespite enormous innovations in the field, average costs for oncology drugs are skyrocketing and thousands of people in the U.S. die from cancer each week. Some payers, including Anthem, Inc., have turned to the use of pathways in an effort to make sure patients get the most appropriate evidence-based care that is still cost-effective.

Anthem’s Cancer Care Quality Program: Pathways to Improve Care and Reduce Costs discusses the specifics of the insurer’s Cancer Care Quality Program, its expectations in terms of outcomes and cost control, lessons it has learned and changes already made in the initial plans.
