Out with the inpatient.
This MSKCC experience describes initial successes of outpatient “symptom care clinics” (think ocongolocy-centric urgent care center set up right in your office). This SCC system was staffed with advanced practice providers and/or physicians with access to labs and imaging. Of 17,542 SCC visits from 2017-2019, only 17% required transfer to an emergency department or hospital. | Xiao, ASCO 2020
