With the number of cancer survivors anticipated to double in the next ten years, how will your organization position itself to meet the demand?
In the face of a growing population and an increasingly competitive landscape for cancer care, it is now more important than ever for facilities to distinguish themselves through providing the latest in cancer services. Patients are demanding interactive, patient friendly facilities and convenient, personalized care. In a challenging economy and declining reimbursements, cancer administrators must enhance and streamline their programs, services and facilities in order to survive.
