    Center Development

    HTI's strategy, which is in line with current shifts in world thinking, involves partnering with quality local providers in areas where cancer care is needed most. With the world crisis in cancer occurring much more rapidly than most policy makers had anticipated, the World Health Organization recently adopted a change in cancer control strategy by campaigning to attract the private sector into helping tackle cancer -- encouraging health insurance companies and drug and food industries to set up new infrastructures and new health markets. HTI's model targets partnership opportunities and encourages strategic alliances between the public and private sectors where appropriate.

Phase 1: Feasibility and Business Planning

Business Planning

HTI's process for ensuring quality cancer care begins with understanding the local marketplace. As potential hospital and physician partners are identified, HTI's team of cancer program development specialists reviews the market, conducts in-depth interviews with key players, and completes a feasibility study. If the feasibility study is favorable, HTI will prepare a full business plan which includes a complete understanding of the:


  • cancer program vision and overall program elements;
  • organizational structure including equity ownership;
  • market potential and financial viability;
  • equipment specifications and facilities/land requirements;
  • staffing requirements; and,
  • marketing strategies.

Commitment to Proceed

As business planning is completed, consensus is gained on moving forward and on the details of the organizational and ownership structure. Legal documents are drafted and executed including a partnership agreement, a management contract and any lease arrangements.
