The theme of the 2009 Summit is Coping with New Economic Realties: Positioning for Future Success. Learn What Cancer Business Innovators and Your Peers are Doing to Cope With New Economic Realities. Today’s economic environment is adversely affecting all cancer care providers. Reimbursement is not keeping pace with the rising cost of operations; drug and imaging payments are being slashed; new technologies and pharmaceuticals are being introduced; credit markets are frozen; retirement funds have eroded; governmental budgets are strained; health reform is on the horizon; and mandates for demonstrated quality and value are more pronounced. In this climate, old ways of doing business need to change.

To help you to cope with this new economic environment, the diverse faculty of the 2009 Cancer Center Business Summit will present:

  • Best practices for achieving operational efficiencies
  • New compensation and financial models to align interests and improve margins
  • New models for clinical and financial integration to provide multi-disciplinary care
  • Restructured arrangements to comply with new Stark Law, Anti-Kickback Statute, anti-mark-up and other recent legal developments
  • New evidence-based medicine initiatives for quality and payment improvement

Highlights of the 2009 Summit include:

  • Original research on the industry from

    • (1) The Annual Cancer Center Business Summit Survey
    • (2) The Advisory Board Company Oncology Roundtable
    • (3) Oncology Metrics’ National Practice Benchmark Survey
  • Anatomy of a Cancer Center Transaction—a detailed mock negotiation of two options for structuring a multi-disciplinary oncology transaction with a hospital partner
