The Pacific Cancer Care Alliance (PCCA) strives to provide outstanding care to patients and their families, and to turn cancer patients into cancer survivors. By bringing the cancer-related patient-care services together, the Alliance builds on existing strengths, improves communications, and reduces time between diagnosis and treatment.
For highly specialized services available only in large university centers, PCCA will identify and work with a select group of centers in the US and elsewhere who are preeminent in their respective fields to provide rapid referral services.
Additionally, the Pacific Cancer Care Alliance is able to make patients more aware of helpful and free or low-cost community resources such as counseling, financial assistance, transportation assistance, and patient navigators.
Patients will have more complete information and less wait time, and less stress and worry.
