MEDTalk: Reinventing Patient-Centered Cancer Care

Brookings Institution

Wednesday Jul 9, 2014 10:30 am to 12:30 pm EDT
United States

Many clinicians have terrific ideas for improving the quality and cost of health care, but often don’t know how to navigate the often baffling landscape of payment and delivery reform options. To address this need in clear, practical terms, we are pleased to announce the secondMEDTalk event in the “Merkin Series on Innovations in Care Delivery.” The series is designed to support clinicians and policymakers who’ve always wondered how delivery reform occurs, but didn’t know where to begin. 

Our second case focuses on the work of leaders from the New Mexico Cancer Center (NMCC), and their efforts to "Reinvent Patient-Centered Cancer Care." The event will feature several brief “TED-style” talks that consider the challenges of delivering oncology care, while enhancing patient experience, improving coordination of care, and reducing costs. The agenda will include firsthand experiences from patients, payers, policymakers, and NMCC's clinical leadership who will explore sustainable improvement strategies, and the financial mechanisms available to encourage innovations in oncology.
