MSK Cancer Alliance: Improving Patient Outcomes and Standards of Care

Peter Bach, Director of the Memorial Sloan Kettering Center for Health Policy and Outcomes, and Richard Barakat, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for the MSK Regional Care Network and Alliance, talk about the potential of the MSK Cancer Alliance to improve patient outcomes by bringing the latest advances in cancer care directly into local communities. Progress in cancer research and treatment is evolving rapidly from a one-size-fits-all model to the use of therapies tailored to individual tumors. By developing paradigms for patient care and connecting people to therapies based on the latest advances no matter which facility they visit, the Alliance will help to fulfill Memorial Sloan Kettering’s core mission of improving the outcomes of all patients with cancer.
