Cancer Center Profile
Cancer care requires the use of many experts and services, in addition to the care provided by medical oncologists. Access to patient support services is an integral component of cancer care. Value-Based Cancer Care (VBCC) asked Mark J. Krasna, MD, Corporate Medical Director of Oncology, Meridian Health, Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Neptune, NJ, to describe key characteristics of a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care and its unique value for patients, providers, and the entire care continuum.
Cancer care has been undergoing transformation in recent years. The oncology medical home is one model that has shown improved outcomes and patient satisfaction. What are the characteristics of the oncology medical home and how is it different from other cancer centers in the United States? Value-Based Cancer Care (VBCC) discussed these questions with Barbara L. McAneny, MD, CEO, New Mexico Oncology Hematology Consultants, who established the New Mexico Cancer Center’s Oncology Medical Home as part of the COME HOME award from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.
