Tumor Site Centers of Excellence

    Tumor Sites

    The development of tumor site programs—programs meeting the specific needs of one tumor site population—has long been a priority for many cancer centers. Now, tumor site programs are taking on more importance than ever due to advances in treatment and changing patient demands.

    This study describes the most significant developments in five tumor site programs: breast, lung, gynecologic, colorectal, and prostate. In addition, we've provided a suite of downloadable tools and resources to help you put our study into action.

    The time to improve tumor site programs is now

    Oncology programs are faced by surging demand: the number of new cancer cases in the U.S. is expected to grow by more than 25% over the next decade. At the same time, competition for these volumes has increased, and treatment innovations mean that cancer care is becoming more complex.

    Tumor site programs, organized to help providers anticipate and meet patients’ diverse medical and psychosocial needs, are one response to these challenges. They can lead to higher quality, patient-centered care while also strengthening market strategy and supporting larger organizational goals.
