Teaming up to transform the cancer care environment

For patients who are scheduled to undergo an exam, the anticipation of a diagnosis can be intensely stressful. Nowhere is this more appropriate than in the world of oncology. Find out how UC Irvine Medical Center and Disney Family Cancer Center are working to make their patient experience more friendly to help patients sustain a sense of calm during procedures.

Compassionate care for cancer patients


The UC Irvine Medical Center and Disney Family Cancer Center teams engaged Philips based on the company’s unique vision of the total patient experience. By partnering with Philips, the teams hoped to reduce patient anxiety and fear related to cancer care at each interaction, while maximizing efficiencies and throughput. This is just one example of what can happen when patients, caregivers, and staff come together to transform care.
