Understanding a Neuroendocrine Tumors’ Impact on Health Systems: A Population-Based Economic Analysis of Patterns of Costs Abstract #1350

Introduction: Little is known on resource utilization and health care costs in NET care.
Aim(s): To define patterns of costs in NET management and compare them to a more common malignancy, colon cancer (CC).
Materials and methods: We identified all NET in a cancer registry (2004-2012). They were matched to CC patients (1:3). 2012 CND$ costs were obtained for 4 phases of care around diagnosis: pre-diagnostic (PrDx: -2 years to -181 days), diagnostic (Dx: -180 days to +180 days), post-diagnostic (PDx: +181 days to +3 years) and prolonged post-diagnostic (PPDx: +181 days to +9 years). Mean costs per patient were compared. Costs predictors were analyzed with quantile regression.

#128 Multidisciplinary reference centers: the need for combined expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of neuroendocrine tumors
Introduction: Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of malignancies with increasing incidence (Yao et al. J Clin Oncol 2008;26:3063–72). Multidisciplinary reference centers (MRCs) can potentially offer better clinical outcomes by integrating and coordinating expert care from many specialties, reducing delays in treatments and referrals, and allowing for accrual to clinical trials. MRCs have achieved improved outcomes in ovarian, breast and lung cancers (Pollock. Ann Surg 2008;248:510–6; Gabel et al. Cancer 1997;79:2380–4; Forrest et al. Br J Cancer 2005;93:977–8). Despite this, MRCs focusing on NETs are uncommon.
