The Florida Health Care Coalition (FHCC) will hold an Oncology Symposium titled Oncology Management Best Practices, Trends and Opportunities. The symposium is scheduled for Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida from 8:00am - 4:00pm.
1. How confident are you with navigating the oncology maze effectively and efficiently?
2. Did you know that for employers, the medical and disability expenses associated with cancer are significant?
3. Did you know that cancer expenses are one of the top three medical expense categories and represent an average of 12 percent of total medical costs are rising yearly?
If you answered any of the questions above with any doubt, you should consider joining FHCC and their expert speakers and panelists to learn about innovative benefit design and contracting approaches as well as pilot studies that are underway to improve the value and timeliness of care delivered to oncology patients and their caregivers.
Meet three of our speakers and find out what you will be missing if you don't attend this timely event for employers, hospitals, health plans and all health care providers!
