The 2014 award was accepted by Aurora Cancer Care Director of Medical Oncology Dr. Jacob Frick at the recent Cancer Center Business Summit (CCBS) in Chicago.
“We are thrilled to honor Dr. Frick and the entire team of professionals at Aurora Cancer Care,” said Michael Blau, a Foley partner and health care attorney. “Their dedication to providing high-quality, efficient, team-based care and unique patient support is truly a model for the industry.”

Our team is dedicated to helping patients get accurate information about their disease, understand their choices, feel supported through critical decisions and keep their focus on getting better.”
Foley’s Cancer Center Innovator Award was created in 2007 to recognize cancer treatment modernization. This year’s selection was based on submissions for the CCBS Call for Business Case Studies, which was issued in conjunction with the American Society of Clinical Oncology Journal of Oncology Practice. Candidates submitted case studies highlighting solutions to industry challenges. The winner was selected by an industry-wide panel of judges, including: Dr. John Cox of Texas Oncology and editor in chief of the Journal of Oncology Practice; Elaine Towle, Director Consulting Services, Oncology Metrics division of Flatiron Health; and Foley’s Michael Blau.
At the 2014 Cancer Center Business Summit, industry leaders explored the changes occurring in the cancer care marketplace and how cancer care organizations are responding to them. For more information about this year’s event, please visit the Cancer Center Business Summit website.
