“It’s finally shown us what we call the ‘Denominator of Cancer Care.’ Everyone thinks they know how many patients they see or could see in their system… but you until you have a system that counts the number of diagnosed patients per year…Now that we know the denominator, we can right size the programs, nurse navigators….and needs for that system… 

For example, in one of our markets, we have…really good systems for pancreatic surgeons… We can now look at every diagnosis across the region and make the program really work…and get patients to where they need to be – the right patient, the right treatment and at the right time.” Dr. Richard Geer, MD | Physician-in-Chief, Surgical Oncology, HCA
