What Makes Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers the Preferred Choice in Colorado?
Since 1992, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers has defined the standard of cancer treatment, treating more adult cancer patients than any other organization in Colorado.
Today, Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers (RMCC) is the largest multidisciplinary practice on the Colorado Front Range dedicated solely to providing state-of-the-art care for patients with cancer and diseases of the blood.
Our independent, community-based model of cancer care means that patient-centered, evidence-based treatment is always close to home.
We are an independent, physician-owned practice.
This means that we have the freedom to make the care decisions that benefit our patients and their families – not health systems.
We offer unmatched experience, expertise, and access.
- RMCC providers have a combined 150+ years of experience.
- There are more than 500 clinical trials available to your patients.
- We provide our physicians’ cell phone numbers to referring providers so that you can easily reach us by phone with any questions or urgent cases.
We uphold a lower cost of care.
We are committed to providing unmatched quality care while keeping patients’ cancer costs low. We achieve this through our participation in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid’s Oncology Care Model. For every dollar spent in the office of an independent oncologist, it’s estimated by the federal government the spend will be $1.80 with an oncologist employed by a hospital system. It doesn’t mean you receive lesser care at RMCC. It means patients receive the very best care that happens to be at a better price. We decrease the total cost of cancer care by:
- Utilizing fiscally responsible drug strategies.
- We have our own pharmacy with staff that specializes in oral oncolytics.
- We offer diagnostic imaging services.
- Utilizing Navigating Care; a remote symptom, side-effect, and medication management system.
- As a member of The US Oncology Network, our physicians maintain their independence, but get the support of a management company that has deep expertise in oncology practice management and value-based care delivery.
We provide increased patient care quality.
- Communicating and coordinating care with all providers.
- Measuring patient satisfaction and creating ongoing strategies to improve the patient experience.
- Providing pain assessment and management.
- Offering additional patient support services (financial, clinical, nutrition, weight loss, smoking cessation).
We utilize treatment pathways for the most successful outcomes.
Value Pathways powered by NCCN™ (National Comprehensive Cancer Network) are treatment pathways that highlight evidence-based treatment options based on efficacy, toxicity and an evaluation of financial impact to patient and payer (Medicare reimbursement). The pathways are a refinement of the NCCN Guidelines and the result of combined efforts through a collaboration between three organizations: NCCN, McKesson and The US Oncology Network. Value Pathways powered by NCCN is a shorter, distilled list of treatment choices that support the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective patient care.
