A new study released on September 25 found that the total cost of care for patients receiving chemotherapy in the hospital outpatient setting is approximately $90,144 per year, or 60%, more expensive than the same treatment delivered in community oncology practices. Additionally, patients were also more likely to visit the emergency department (ED) after they were treated in the hospital setting.

The study, “The Value of Community Oncology: Site of Care Cost Analysis” was conducted by Lucio Gordan, MD, Medical Director in the Division of Quality & Informatics at Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute, and Xcenda, a global health economics consultancy.
