WALTHAM, Mass. (Sep 27, 2010) The economics of private oncology practices have fundamentally changed in the past three years – driving practice consolidation, specialty diversification, and hospital affiliations. While dealing with these external pressures, oncology practices also need to automate key practice processes with technology – and plan that investment wisely in expectation of continued change.
Michele Feehily, IntelliDose® director of professional services, will moderate a panel of electronic medical record (EMR) champions at the 27th Annual Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) National Oncology Economics Conference in St. Louis later this week. The three panelists will draw from real-world experiences to discuss the challenges and the economic benefits of implementing an electronic health record system in an oncology practice.
