Both the Dana-Farber Cancer Care Collaborative and the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Care Collaborative serve a select group of community hospitals that have demonstrated a commitment to excellence by meeting a wide range of cancer care standards and best practices.
To certify a hospital's membership, Dana-Farber clinicians and other specialists conduct an extensive and rigorous review of the hospital's oncology practices and procedures, including:
Following review of their oncology operations, Collaborative members agree to implement key recommendations in order to meet Dana-Farber standards.
Dana-Farber Collaborative membership enhances educational opportunities for member hospitals' staffs; offers opportunities for members to consult with medical specialists at Dana-Farber in Boston; and provides members with expedited access to Dana-Farber's main campus in Boston for their patients with complex cancers. Members can also take advantage of access to Dana-Farber support services, such as on-site specialty second opinion clinics, clinical trials, tumor board conferences, and physician lectures.
Dana-Farber is not responsible for the care provided at these locations.
Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Lifespan Cancer Institute in Rhode Island have created a strategic alliance to advance cancer treatment and research. Dana-Farber and Lifespan will support the expansion of clinical trials, access for Lifespan physicians to cancer-specific disease expertise for complex cases, and the launch of a new program to coordinate the treatment of bone marrow transplant patients, with transplants provided in Boston at Dana-Farber and care surrounding the transplant provided at Lifespan Cancer Institute in Providence. The two organizations will share patient information through their respective cancer-specific electronic health record systems and will use the same clinical trials management platform, resulting in better care coordination.
