Summary of "Prospective Evaluation of Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer Risk Index Score for Gynecologic Oncology Patients With Febrile Neutropenia."

The Multinational Association of Supportive Care of Cancer (MASCC) risk-index score has been validated as a stratification tool for febrile neutropenia (FN) risk in a heterogeneous group of cancer patients; recently, it has been deemed a suitable tool in gynecologic oncology patients in a retrospective study. This is a prospective multi-institutional study wherein we sought to validate MASCC score for stratifying FN morbidity in gynecologic oncology patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Any system which allows payors to share some of the financial risk associated with a particular patient population with providers. Providers agree to adhere to fixed fee schedules in exchange for an increase in their payor base and a chance to benefit from cost containment measures. Common risk-sharing methods are prospective payment schedules (PROSPECTIVE PAYMENT SYSTEM), capitation (CAPITATION FEES), diagnosis-related fees (DIAGNOSIS-RELATED GROUPS), and pre-negotiated fees.

The concept also includes bereavement care for the family. (From Dictionary of Health Services Management, 2d ed)
