Oncology consulting firm expands services to help practices provide care to cancer patients.
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 25, 2007 -- A recent report from the American Cancer Society cites cancers as the second leading cause of death for Americans, responsible for 23 percent of all deaths in the US.
"Every day, new research is being conducted to help find new cancer treatments, educate the public and ease the suffering of those with cancer," said John Lohrman, Vice-President of Medical Technology Resources, LLC, an oncology consulting firm (http://mtrhealth.com/).
As an example, Lohrman cited a study released earlier this week by the University of Toledo and slated for presentation at an international conference hosted by the American Association for Cancer Research that identified a gene related to lung cancer risk.
"All this great research is creating hope for people who suffer from cancer," Lohrman said. "At Medical Technology Resources, we not only care about research to change the future, we care about helping cancer patients who are suffering today."
According to Lohrman, the company recently expanded its oncology consulting services (http://mtrhealth.com/default.aspx?page=oncology) to help practices tailor their services around their patients' therapies inside or outside the practice.
"Our service allows practices to buy, lease or rent IV equipment for outpatient care," Lohrman explained. "We have great respect for the practices that provide home care for cancer patients. Our goals are to help those practices provide the best care possible to their patients and run successful businesses."
Andrew Amicon, President & CEO of Medical Technology Resources, states that Medical Technology Resources' consultants have years of experience in helping practices care for patients. "Now we offer outpatient practices a full range of services, including third party billing, assistance in utilizing the latest ambulatory infusion pump technology, twenty-four seven on call service, and creative financing options for practices to acquire equipment.
"Our mission is to serve the people who care for the patient," Amicon said.
