GE and CTSI will configure the network in a hub-and-spoke fashion, with all centers linked by a sophisticated IT network to a hub, and supported by a multi-national group of clinicians, and administrators.
The hub will be a centre of excellence with full diagnostic imaging and treatment capabilities while the spoke will have the ability to deliver a range of screening, staging and treatment options.
The centers will use globally proven clinical pathways and protocols to standardize the care for every patient. The first hub center, American Oncology Institute, CTSI's international brand, is already operational in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh.
The first spoke or remote centre is being set up in Andhra Pradesh.
The partners will provide a comprehensive oncology service line to interested healthcare providers in small and large cities to accelerate and expand the network across India.
