St. Rose Offers Cancer Consults through Interactive Television


The Heartland Cancer Center at St. Rose Ambulatory & Surgery Center, Great Bend, KS, offers patient consultations with oncology specialists 250 miles away at the University of Kansas Cancer Center, Kansas City, through an interactive television (ITV) service. The ITV service is available due to the cancer center’s membership in the Midwest Cancer Alliance, an organization that brings services and education to communities throughout Kansas. Through the service, cancer patients can continue to take advantage of local imaging, infusion and laboratory services, while they and their physicians consult in real time with physicians at the university’s cancer center.
