The Clinical Oversight and Scientific Rigor to Design Higher-Quality Cancer Care

Clinical pathways without expert oversight won't move the needle on cost or quality. New Century Health's value-based clinical pathways are rigorously developed and maintained by company clinicians under the oversight of an independent Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB is comprised of noted academic and community-based specialist physicians. Take a glimpse inside the SAB and the role it plays in driving higher-quality, evidence-based cancer care.

"There are two ways to make these decisions. One is based on the science that is there, and the other is based solely on economics. I think a lot of payer pathways put a lot of weight on the economics and that, particularly if it's done in the dark where it's a non-transparent process, then both doctors and patients are going to be suspicious of the decisions they've made, and rightly so. So taking that out of the dark, putting it into a transparent place, bringing in the community to help develop the pathways, running it through a very rigorous scientific process, really sets New Century Health apart from pathways that are developed by other payer organizations." - Dr. Jeffery Ward, SAB Member
