Community health centers take on a unique role to serve community-based and patient-directed organizations in populations with limited access to health care. The major mission for Community Oncology Centers is to provide affordable care to patients for the duration of their treatment and maintaining vigilance during remission. These centers allow for patients to remain close to their homes, families, and local support networks, in addition to receiving comprehensive cancer care that has previously been limited to larger academic medical centers. Community Oncology Centers have grown to the extent that they provide treatment for almost 70 percent of Americans with cancer.
As in all clinical settings, Community Oncology Centers face issues when bringing a new technology to its practice – from financial upgrades to systems integration. These Centers, however, are better positioned to accelerate uptake of new technology due to their ability to focus on oncology, pool resources, and share collective experience. This enables practices to diversify, apply large data insights and leverage technological advances to improve performance and thus achieve better outcomes for patients. Precision Medicine was launched to focus on oncology and is the most mature in terms of offerings for precision diagnostics and medicine.
