The strategic vision of MD Anderson's Physician Relations department is to integrate relationship building with operational excellence and engagement in order to develop an oncology referral network that will most benefit cancer patients. We strive to:
- establish and sustain loyal physician relationships between MD Anderson and our physician colleagues who trust us with the care and treatment of their oncology patients.
- use qualitative and quantitative analysis to facilitate patient referral processes that enhance the patient access experience and improve referring physician satisfaction
- create opportunities to engage our faculty with their colleagues in their communities to foster communication and establish relationships
Our mission is to create collegial physician and faculty relationships that establish the foundation for patient access by facilitating opportunities to coordinate the care of oncology patients across all MD Anderson Cancer Center campuses.
Physician Relations will position MD Anderson as the oncology referral center of choice.
