Patients with cancer- or chemotherapy-related symptoms often get triaged to the emergency room. This is the least cost-effective solution and could end up being the msot harmful to the patients. Waiting a long time near infectious patients can be dangerous to many patients with cancer. Additionally, 53% - 60% of patients with cancer who go through the emergency room end up being readmitted.
