On Tuesday, February 7, 2017, Carevive’s CEO Madelyn Herzfeld will be at the Cancer Center Business Summit 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  She will be a panelist at a breakout session titled “Opportunities in Patient-Centered Care Delivery Models.”

Carevive Systems will also be exhibiting at the conference. Use hashtag #CCBS17 to follow the conversation in social media.

About the Breakout session:

Social determinants of health and psychosocial issues can account for as much as 60% of the health outcomes of patients. Yet, most oncology service lines and practices have little or no programs to address these issues. This is because, traditionally, these issues have been viewed as social welfare and not health care matters, and because, historically, there has been no return on the investment for developing these programs. That is now changing. With CMMI’s Accountable Communities Model, Oncolog Care Model and other alternative payment arrangements, community oncology stakeholders have new opportunities and incentives to prioritize their health care spend on effective patient centered care models that improve patient outcomes and health. Also, new tools are now available to help address these social welfare issues, as well as genetics counseling, palliative care and other non-clinical interventions that impact health. These tools can change the cost/ benefit equation and provide a feasible business case for developing and implementing such patient-centered support programs. In this session, speakers will explore the evidence-based support for the effectiveness of these programs and will discuss their associated economics.

2016 was an exciting time in palliative care. The third annual Palliative Care in Oncology Symposium was held in September. ASCO updated palliative care guidelines. COME HOME practices shared more data about palliative care in that model. This session will explore the “best of” highlights from each of these events.


February 6-7, 2017


The theme of the 2017 Summit is Transforming the Business of Oncology through Science and Technology. Enabled by cutting edge technologies and new science, innovative oncology stakeholders are undertaking bold initiatives to re-imagine, re-design and re-build our system of cancer care delivery into the “value-based” system of the future– focused on delivering care more efficiently, in a more patient centered way, and improving patient outcomes and survival rates.
