Compassionate Care

Oncology Analytics’ Compassionate Care Program helps relieve the stress that individuals and families experience when coping with advanced stage cancer. Oncology Analytics’ clinical team provides early identification of patients that qualify for palliative care and patients in need of hospice care.

Patients that qualify for palliative or hospice care will have palliative-trained nurses who can facilitate pain and symptom relief, initiate care discussions and provide decision support to patients and families facing the physical, emotional and spiritual distress of advanced cancer. Experience has demonstrated that when expert support is provided, the palliative care and hospice election rate increases considerably. As a result, medical costs decrease from less acute hospitalizations, ER visits and other alternative treatments.

Oncology Analytics’ Compassionate Care Program facilitates informed decisions concerning goals of care to make sure individuals’ wishes are honored. The result is better quality care, increased patient and family satisfaction and lower costs.
