Healthcare delivery is facing an important transition with a focus increasingly on chronic disease. Likewise, the epidemiology of cancer incidence and prevalence globally indicates that while the incidence of cancer is rising, the ability to extend life is adding considerably to the burden of care. Continued scientific advances in our understanding of cancer and opening up new therapeutic avenues is adding additional pressure and cost pressure on care for cancer patients. As many of the scientific advances, particularly the Omics Revolution have a direct bearing on cancer, it places this condition at the forefront of defining the way in which healthcare will need to be delivered in the next 20 years.
