Patients and payers (government and private) are frustrated with the fee-for-service system (FFS) of payment for outpatient health services. FFS rewards volume and highly valued services, including expensive diagnostics and therapeutics, over lesser valued cognitive services. Proposed payment schemes would incent collaboration and coordination of care among(More)
The effects of different doses of filgrastim on yields of CD34+ peripheral blood stem cells were evaluated in patients with breast cancer. 55 were randomized to receive filgrastim 10, 20, 30 or 40 microg/kg/d with more CD34+ cells/kg/apheresis harvested after the three highest dose levels. 35 additional patients were randomized to receive 10 or 30 microg/(More)
We investigated the outcomes of patients with breast cancer undergoing induction chemotherapy, mobilization of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) and high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) with PBSC infusion. One hundred and fourteen patients with untreated stage IV breast cancer, with a median age of 46 years (range 24-62), were entered on a phase II trial(More)
Although the patient-centered medical home is a well-established model of care for primary care providers, adoption by specialty providers has been relatively limited. Recently, there has been particular interest in developing specialty medical homes in medical oncology because of practice variation, care fragmentation, and high overall costs of care. In(More)
The purpose of this study is to determine outcomes for patients with high-risk nonmetastatic breast cancer undergoing high-dose chemotherapy with peripheral blood stem cell support. Forty-three patients with stage II-III disease, five to nine positive axillary lymph nodes, and a median age of 44 years (range, 27-60 years) were enrolled in a study that(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine outcomes for 56 patients with inflammatory breast cancer (IBC) receiving high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) with cyclophosphamide, thiotepa and carboplatin (CTCb) with peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) support. All patients received the same total amount of chemotherapy but there were differences in the sequence of(More)
In recent years, the cost of providing quality cancer care has been subject to an epic escalation causing concerns on the verge of a health care crisis. Innovative patient-management models in oncology based on patient-centered medical home (PCMH) principles, coupled with alternative payments to traditional fee for service (FFS), such as bundled and(More)
