Addressing Accessibility and Affordability for the Sickest Cancer Patients by Building Integrated Right To Try Outpatient Clinics.
About United Cancer Centers
United Cancer Centers, Inc. (“UCC”), comprises a collection of US-based outpatient clinics that seek to redefine the concept of informed decision making for cancer patients by providing access to a wider array of both FDA-approved and investigational treatment options.
The goal of United Cancer Centers is to provide comprehensive cancer treatment that addresses the glaring issues that cancer patients face, such as the need for rapid access to information regarding treatment options, access to investigational therapies once all standard of care options are exhausted, and the affordability of care.
Right To Try Outpatient Clinics
Options For Cancer Patients
Collectively, the goal of United Cancer Centers is to take a process that typically takes 10 to 15 years with the U.S. FDA and to time collapse this into as little as 18 months.
By shortening the gap between scientific discovery and implementation, we can ensure that patients have a feasible and understandable pathway to access the most cutting edge therapeutic interventions. Our hope is that this process can better facilitate the pathway to a cure for cancer through translational medicine.
Introducing the UCC Integrated Right-To-Try Outpatient Clinic Model
Our Long Term Vision at United Cancer Centers is to provide a comprehensive array of treatments that help patients with true informed decision making. We help patients navigate all the possible therapeutic drugs to treat their condition including standard of care treatments (radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and immunotherapy), clinical trials, and other pathways for obtaining allowable cancer treatments such as through the Right-to-Try legislation.

Understanding the Potential Value of the Right-to-Try Law for the Patient
Cost Reduction For Patient
Providing Patients Hope
At United Cancer Centers, our goal is to provide patients with the best-suited immunotherapy treatments for their individual cancer.
Cost Containment Strategies & Comparison
Given the terrible burden of cancer, coupled with all of these obstacles to cancer treatment, there is a dire need for patient-centered cancer care facilities that can centralize the processes of treatment decision-making and delivery of comprehensive cancer care.
At the same time, there is an urgent need to address the gaps that exist in access, affordability, and transparency of the process of procuring and paying for therapeutics such that the benefits and risks can be considered by patients and their families.
Limitations in Patient Access
to Investigational Drugs
One potential use of the Right to Try law is to expand access to approved drugs with the goal of removing price discrepancies
It is our goal to leverage the Right-to-Try law as well as conventional FDA pathways to facilitate patient access to validated immunotherapy by navigating the pharmaceutical landscape and the regulatory considerations on behalf of patients. In addition, we strive to utilize the Right-to-Try law as a pathway for maximizing the affordability of drug therapies for cancer patients.
Currently, Compassionate Use has limited widespread utility due to high barriers to entry
