Eon Webinar

Building a Best-in-Class Lung Program

Learn how St. Elizabeth Healthcare is improving lung cancer survivability through investment in early detection programs.

Lung cancer has one of the lowest survival rates of all cancers and therefore increasing early detection through comprehensive lung programs is vital to the health of these communities. States like Kentucky, with the highest prevalence of lung cancer are fighting hard to improve patient survivability through programs that focus on community outreach, lung cancer screening, and incidental pulmonary nodule management.

St. Elizabeth Healthcare joined Eon to share what went into building its successful lung program which has resulted in an incredible decline in late-stage lung cancer diagnosis that is three times faster than the national average.

In this webinar, St. Elizabeth Healthcare discussed:

  • An overview of its program including resources, processes, and how they standardized across all facilities.
  • How they successfully achieved stage shift to more patients being diagnosed with lung cancer in Stage I and II.
  • What they did to build patient advocacy through community outreach & the White Ribbon Project.
  • Why they added formal incidental pulmonary nodule management alongside lung cancer screening programs to ensure no potential lung cancer patient slips through the cracks.
