WALTHAM, Mass. (Sep 09, 2010) IntrinsiQ CEO Jeff Forringer will examine and debunk widely accepted misperceptions about oncology care, physician treatment decisions, and the cost of care at the ICORE/Magellan Oncology Summit in New York this week.
The oncology specialty is facing pressure like never before: Costs can be prohibitive, oral chemotherapy delivers patient convenience but increases compliance uncertainty, and physicians are tackling the need to standardize treatment practices across cancer care.
Forringer will share insights into the realities of today’s clinical cancer care practices. He will draw from IntrinsiQ’s gold-standard data resources on longitudinal oncology treatment decisions nationwide to reveal how doctors truly practice medicine, the factors that bear the greatest influence on outcomes and costs, and continually changing perceptions of treatment efficacy.
