Study Demonstrates Significantly Better Quality Cancer Care and Lower Costs with a Value-Based Care Model Implemented by The Oncology Institute and CareMore Health

The Oncology Institute (TOI), in collaboration with the Stanford University School of Medicine and CareMore Health, today announced data from a study, Enhancing community capacity to deliver value-based cancer care at the end-of-life, which evaluated the effect of the intervention of using lay health workers (LHWs) on end-of-life cancer care. Specifically, the study evaluated healthcare use in the last month of life and its impact on quality care and financial burden on patients. Results were presented at the 2019 ASCO Quality Care Symposium in San Diego, CA (Abstract #4).
