Resources to grow your cancer program

    Overview

    Given the aging of the population, cancer incidence is projected to increase 20% over the next ten years. As cancer care becomes more complex, growth in oncology volumes is expected to be even more robust. However, growth in overall cancer patient volumes does not necessarily mean growth for your program.

    Key challenges:

    • Increasing competition. Although the number of cancer patients is increasing so is the number of providers competing for cancer patients
    • Shifting referral patterns. Hospital M&A, narrow provider networks, and patient consumerism are disrupting traditional referral patterns
    • Continuing cost growth. Payers worried about spending on cancer care are looking for opportunities to shore up independent oncologists and keep patients out of hospital-based cancer programs

    Use the information below to learn how you can grow your cancer program.
