The results will provide a potential model for tracking patient data
Anova Cancer Care is participating in a nationwide Registry for Prostate Cancer Radiosurgery (RPCR). The network gives participating providers review a large body of shared data.
“We have the opportunity to collaborate with other oncologists and examine large numbers of patients because of our diligence and commitment to research that improves care,” said Dr. Gregg Dickerson (formerly with Anova Cancer Care) in the article.
RPCR also gives smaller, community-based cancer centers, which typically don’t have the staffing to take part in more formal clinical trials, access to that powerful resource. RPCR is poised to gain more attention after serving as the centerpiece of a study, co-authored by Dr. Dickerson, published in January. The report, titled “Multi-institutional Registry for Prostate Cancer Radiosurgery: A Prospective Observational Clinical Trial,” appeared in the journal Frontiers in Oncology.
