The Oncology Expert Advisor
Annual Report - Winter 2014
There were 14.1 million new cancer cases worldwide in 2012.
Most cancer patients can't travel to MD Anderson for the expert care that comes from more than 70 years of institutional expertise fighting the disease. In the short term, the fastest way to improve patient outcomes on a global level is to elevate and standardize cancer care in communities served by MD Anderson’s network of partners throughout the U.S. and around the world.
What OEA can do tomorrow:
Extend the reach of MD Anderson care beyond Houston, the state of Texas and the United States by capturing its oncology expertise and delivering it to a larger group of patients. In turn, that rising sea of patient data, which is increasingly more representative of the world’s population, informs OEA to continuously supply patients and providers with the best options and improve outcomes.
Share up-to-date knowledge about treatment plans, clinical trials and potential complications with oncologists worldwide. Global access to MD Anderson’s expertise can raise the standard of cancer care for all. As it serves as a virtual advisor, OEA collects data from a larger and more diverse patient population.
