Innovation in Cancer Care
Cancer care delivery requires flexibility and innovation. The Closer to Free Ride provides funding support to ensure the leadership of Smilow Cancer Hospital and Yale Cancer Center can implement new programs and capitalize on new knowledge to benefit our patients. Clinical initiatives including next day access for patients who are newly diagnosed with cancer, online appointment scheduling, and in home inpatient level care and infusion treatment are current priorities for Smilow Cancer Hospital. Technologies like artificial intelligence (AI), telehealth, diagnostic tools, robotics, and digital pathology are improving the way we provide cancer care at our 16 Centers and Programs of Excellence across the Smilow Network with support from Closer to Free.
