Reinventing the Process of Care

Paul Read, MD, and his radiation oncology team are designing a new approach to caring for patients with advanced cancer that has spread to the bone. The new process aims to:

  • Reduce weeks of radiation into a single visit
  • Keep patients out of the hospital and home with their loved ones as much as possible.
  • Improve quality of care and
  • Enhance each patient's quality of life

This new model received a Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation grant of more than $2.5 million.
