Our pioneering, integrated approach to cancer care means that each patient’s cancer care team — medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and surgeon — collaborates to ensure delivery of high quality and advanced care to patients in the communities where they live.
US Oncology Research
Supported by McKesson Specialty Health and The US Oncology Network, US Oncology Research draws from a network of experienced investigators and dedicated clinical staff who specialize in Phase I through Phase IV oncology clinical trials. US Oncology Research serves more than 85 practices in more than 245 locations managing more than 200 active trials at any given time. Physicians in the research network have enrolled more than 52,000 patients in over 1,200 trials since inception in 1992 and have contributed to the development of 43 cancer therapies approved by the FDA.
The US Oncology Network believes that all cancer patients should have access to the care they need without the threat of severe financial hardship. Patients are offered dedicated support to help access reimbursement- assistance programs. Since the program began in 2006, more than 23,000 patients from across the country received more than $150 million in financial assistance for needed therapies. We work with federal, state and local legislators, as well as government and private payers to foster a greater understanding about oncology patient care and the vital role community oncology practices play in the lives of cancer patients and their families.
