Dr. Kaplan encouraged the brachytherapy community to show comparable or better outcomes and lower total cost of care to reverse the trend in declining utility of brachy. Taking a more holistic look at the future of healthcare delivery as a whole, Dr. Kaplan said, “You should only be practicing in places where you deliver superior outcomes at lower cost.”
We couldn’t agree more.
These points, in combination with our hosted luncheon focusing on marketing strategies and tactics to promote the value of brachytherapy to multiple stakeholders (patients, communities and referring physicians), have created a powerful foundation for the resurgence of brachytherapy in the near future.
