Innovent Oncology services were developed and have been in practical, community-based application for more than three years within the US Oncology network of member practices. While developed in the community setting, where more than 80 percent of the cancer care is delivered, this integrated approach to care is also applicable and easily implemented in hospital and academic settings.

"Everyone wants clinically effective, cost-efficient care but, without true integration, there's either a duplication of effort or a communications gap that results in inefficiencies and a less than optimal patient experience."
