Hackensack University Medical Center Thoracic Surgery team recently published a study that offers outcomes in streamlining video-assisted lobectomy to increase the value of lung cancer care.
The study conducted by Nabil P. Rizk, MS, MPH, M.D., ; Nazly M. Shariati, MJS, FACS, FCCP, M.D. and Geoffrey B. Pelz, M.D., is a review of the outcomes of patients who received HMH’s video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lung lobectomy in 2015.
The review found that there were long lengths of stay, inefficient care transitions, and overuse of resources.
