Doctors in Texas to aid Boston-area hospitals

Boston Globe, May 21, 2010

A group of community hospitals in Southeastern Massachusetts has partnered with doctors from an out-of-state academic medical center to provide cancer treatment. Southcoast Health System has signed an affiliation agreement with doctors from MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to help provide patient care, including advising the hospital on drug regimens, pain control, and chemotherapy safety, and providing opinions on difficult cases. The partnership, which requires Southcoast to pay the Texas physicians group an undisclosed sum in return for its expertise, is intended to raise the quality of care, the Boston Globe reports.
