Fox Chase Cancer Center Publishes Clinical Outcomes for Patient Use
Date:1/31/2011

PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Fox Chase Cancer Center, one of the nation's leading cancer research and treatment institutions, today announced the posting of clinical outcomes data to its website as a tool to assist newly-diagnosed patients in deciding where to seek cancer care.  This initiative follows on a survey Fox Chase commissioned in the fall of 2010, in which non-diagnosed adults ranked success rates as the factor that would be the most important in choosing a hospital if they were told that they or a family member required cancer treatment.

"We are committed to helping the public become more informed when making decisions about their health care," said Michael V. Seiden, M.D., Ph.D., president and CEO of Fox Chase Cancer Center. "While individual outcomes cannot be predicted, we hope this data will enable patients to make choices that are right for them, ensuring that they receive the best care possible."

While the movement toward greater medical transparency and patient empowerment grows nationally, only a handful of cancer institutions currently publish outcomes data, as measured by survival rates.  The figures Fox Chase has released describe five-year survival rates for patients diagnosed at the different stages of breast, colorectal, lung, and prostate cancers, the most common cancers in the United States.  These numbers are charted on Fox Chase's website in comparison to patient survival data from both small and large community hospitals across the country, using statistics from the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB), maintained by the American College of Surgeons.

"In these charts, people will see that patients receiving care at Fox Chase Cancer Center have superior outcomes c
