Lifespan Corporation Key Developments

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Lifespan Sign Memorandum of Understanding to Form Partnership for Advance Cancer Treatment and Expand Research

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Lifespan leadership have signed a memorandum of understanding to form a partnership that will advance cancer treatment and expand research. The details will be finalized early next year. The partnership will focus on five areas: genomics and precision medicine; clinical trials; value-based care and cancer care delivery innovation; shared care models; and cancer workforce development. As the planning moves forward, the two organizations are already collaborating on a multi-site grant application to the National Human Genome Research Institute to study the clinical utility of genomics information. Lifespan's Comprehensive Cancer Center patients will continue to receive excellent cancer care in Rhode Island, but patients with rare and more complex cancers will benefit from seamless referrals and coordination of care at Dana-Farber. The partnership will allow Lifespan to access the outstanding faculty, research resources, and programs of Dana-Farber to benefit patients in Rhode Island. Aiding in the organizations' partnership is a common cancer-specific electronic health record system, the Epic Beacon platform, that will facilitate coordination of care, and both organizations will be using the same OnCore clinical trials management system.
