Dutch Cancer Foundation (KWF) has collected 18 innovative ideas to keep cancer treatments economically accessible to all patients. This set of new business models has been offered to the Secretary of Health, Mrs. Schippers on 1 December. “I appreciate the efforts of KWF to initiate discussions about obstacles in oncology, particularly because they also create proposals how to solve these issues. We need to collaborate to ensure that new therapies for oncology remain economically accessible in the future”, says Secretary of Health Mrs. Schippers.
Michel Rudolphie, director of KWF, offered the set of innovative business models to the Secretary of Health. It also includes the approach of Sensius to make thermal therapy of Head and Neck tumors available at zero cost. When thermal therapy from Sensius is added to the primary treatment of Head and Neck tumors, the savings on reduction of treatment of recurring tumors is equal to the extra cost of the therapy.
