US Oncology, Inc. Key Developments

PCCI and The US Oncology Network Enters into an Agreement to Develop Two Oncology Solutions

PCCI and The US Oncology Network have entered into an agreement to develop two oncology solutions that will run on PCCI's Pieces software platform. The oncology solutions, architected by PCCI data scientists, will be developed for two cancer types: Stage IIIb/IV Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and Stage IV Pancreatic Cancer, chosen because of their high relative rates of hospitalization. PCCI developers in collaboration with The US Oncology Network will use the data to construct software to help physicians make better, faster and more informed decisions on a patient's treatment. The ultimate goal is to identify high-risk individuals and assess the utility of interventions that decrease the frequency of undesired outcomes such as emergency department visits, hospitalizations and readmissions. Physicians at high volume sites within Texas Oncology, a practice in The US Oncology Network, will review the results, and program success will be measured by comparing the data output against a validation cohort.
