Advance Care Planning a Critical Component - An Advisory Board Company Profile on Carevive

Advisory Board Company features a follow up Carevive case study in Oncology Roundtable National Meeting Series

Last year we were proud to be profiled by the Advisory Board Company in their Oncology Roundtable National Meeting series, an annual presentation on issues most relevant to oncology service line leaders. This year we’re even more so delighted to be featured again as the Oncology Roundtable profiled a follow up on Carevive.

The series kicked off in Washington, D.C. on April 17-18  and will include an Oncology State of the Union presentation on the major market forces impacting oncology and the implications for cancer program strategy and a special focus on medical, radiation, surgical, and interventional oncology. They will also explore tactics to achieve care standardization, lessons learned from Oncology Care Model participants and experts, and more.

As per the Advisory Board’s agenda for this series, Carevive’s profile feature will be mentioned in  “The Cancer Care Transformation Playbook” session:

The Cancer Care Transformation Playbook
Identifying opportunities to reduce costs and improve care

Cancer programs today face a multitude of pressures—from growing volumes to increasing pressure on operating margins to changing payment models. As a result of these converging trends, cancer program leaders will be forced to transform their care delivery model to execute on the longstanding priority of delivering high-quality care while reducing unnecessary costs.

The path forward will require a laser focus on standardizing care, improving symptom management and care coordination, and understanding program performance on key financial and quality metrics. We’ll cover:

  • Opportunities to improve care and reduce costs
  • Tactics to achieve care standardization
  • Strategies for quality tracking and reporting

The profile on Carevive features a case study of University of Alabama Medicine (UAB), an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Birmingham, Alabama. UAB partnered with USA Mitchell Cancer Institute (Mobile, Alabama) and AtlantiCare Cancer Institute (Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey) to conduct a study with Carevive.  They used Carevive’s patient care planning platform to provide physicians with a tool that auto-generates a patient care plan and triggers appropriate referrals across the cancer continuum based on clinical data, patient-reported outcomes, and evidence-based guidelines.

 The Advisory Board Company is a global research, technology, and consulting firm partnering with more than 230,000 leaders in more than 5,000 organizations across health care and higher education.  The Oncology Roundtable is the Advisory Board’s research membership for oncology program leaders at academic medical centers, cancer facilities, and community hospitals. Since 1999, they have offered administrators, physicians, and clinical staff the forecasting tools and best practice insights needed to answer the industry’s most pressing strategic and operational questions:
  • What are the essential components of a tumor site center-of-excellence?
  • How do I develop a financially sustainable patient navigation and survivorship programs?
  • How will health reform influence cancer care delivery and how do I prepare my cancer program?
  • How do I better align with my cancer program’s physicians in order to achieve best-in-class clinical quality, patient service, and cost control?
  • How do I measure and demonstrate the quality of my cancer program’s clinical care?
