“The impact of care coordination can be tremendous. A large proportion of our patients come from several hours away. Through care coordination and through things like telehealth, we can deliver high quality care to patients in their [own] community.” – Geoffrey L. Uy, MD
“Successful care coordination is a seamless transition of care where we work together as a cohesive team, even across different cancer centers, with a consistent message and consistent treatment plan.” – Khoan Tuong Vu, MD
