Aetna's (AET) cancer-management program, which it's carrying out with the U.S. Oncology Network and a McKesson (MCK) unit, had a positive impact on patients and helped to cut costs. The scheme cut ER visits 39.8%, hospital admissions 16.5% and the number of hospital days 35.9%. The scheme led to 12% cost savings among lung, breast and colorectal cancers alone. (PR)
