CVS Health Launches New Approach to Oncology Management

December 17, 2019 / MHE Staff

CVS Health launched Transform Oncology Care, a program that includes a comprehensive, first-of-its-kind precision approach to oncology management for payers. It uses genomic testing results at the point-of-prescribing to help patients start on the best treatment, faster and in addition, matches eligible patients to clinical trials. Transform Oncology Care also uses CVS Health’s local footprint and unique assets to improve patient outcomes and lower overall costs at every point of the cancer care journey.Transform Oncology Care includes an innovative precision medicine strategy that increases access to broad-panel gene sequencing tests for patients diagnosed with certain advanced stage cancers. In collaboration with Tempus, a technology company advancing precision medicine through the practical application of artificial intelligence in healthcare, test results will support oncologists as they work to identify the most precise, appropriate treatment regimen for their patients, ultimately helping to decrease progression and reduce unnecessary costs.
