Optim Oncology and Urology Centers of Oklahoma, divisions of Oklahoma Multispecialty Group, have joined U.S. Oncology Network, a network of integrated, community-based, physician-owned oncology practices dedicated to advancing high-quality, evidence-based cancer care.
By joining the U.S. Oncology Network, the physicians at Optim Oncology and Urology Centers of Oklahoma can collaborate with other oncology experts from across the nation in real time, discuss complex cancer cases and provide patients access to some of the most cutting-edge cancer treatments, supportive care programs and clinical trials available. The practices also gain a multitude of resources and business support to help deliver quality patient care, demonstrate value-based care and manage their operations in an ever-changing and ever-challenging healthcare environment.
“Joining the network gives us access to the very latest clinical trials, scientifically proven treatment pathways, patient support programs and other vast resources available from one of the nation’s leading independent networks of cancer physicians,” said Christopher Bozarth, M.D., managing member, Oklahoma Multispecialty Group. “Oklahomans no longer need to travel to large medical centers or academic institutions in remote locations to receive leading-edge therapies. By collaborating with the U.S. Oncology Network, Optim Oncology and Urology Centers now can offer these treatments to patients in the communities where they live and work.”
Optim Oncology and Urology Centers of Oklahoma now can offer patients novel clinical trials through U.S. Oncology Research. Additionally, they can employ the evidence-based treatment pathways—Value Pathways powered by NCCN—to identify precise, clinically proven treatment options that have been proven by science to be the most effective, least toxic care for the majority of patients.
The clinical teams at Optim Oncology and Urology Centers of Oklahoma also can collaborate with colleagues across the nation through the Oncology Portal, a HIPAA-secure physician-only portal allowing physicians to tap into the collective knowledge of nearly 1,000 oncologists.
