EXTOLLING THE BENEFITS OF IDENTIFYING POLYCYTHEMIA VERA PATIENTS AND MYELOFIBROSIS WITHIN MEDICALLY INTEGRATED DISPENSING PRACTICES
In effort to promote higher quality patient care the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association, Inc (NCODA) constructed the NCODA Positive Quality Intervention to provide healthcare providers with the support and enhanced education to improve the overall management of patients receiving oral oncolytics.
The PQI fosters better care for patients through increased speed to therapy, reduced cost and hospitalization, and by improving persistence and adherence within medically integrated teams. The PQI in Action incorporates opinions and experiences from a variety of adept participants such as those from both New England Cancer Specialist’s (NECS) and Utah Cancer Specialist’s (UCS) medically integrated teams. Both practices have successfully implemented medically integrated dispensing (MID) as well as the use of positive quality interventions throughout their care teams to improve the treatment regimens of Polycythemia Vera and Myelofibrosis identified patients.
