All.Can international has launched a report titled ‘Patient insights on cancer care: opportunities for improving efficiency’. It reveals findings from an international survey on the patient perspectives of inefficiencies in cancer care. With insights from almost 4,000 patients in over 10 countries, the report identifies four key areas of opportunity for improvement and highlights the need to establish a sustainable approach to cancer care.
Currently, at least 20% of total healthcare spending is estimated to be wasted on inefficient care, representing a crucial opportunity to improve the quality of care.
