Board of Directors
Marc Fishman, MD
Dr. Fishman founded Oncology Analytics in 2009. As a hematologist, oncologist and patient advocate, Dr. Fishman recognized that the rising costs and complexity of cancer treatment were compromising the ability for oncologists to make comprehensive, evidenced-based decisions for their patients’ treatment.
Dr. Fishman is board-certified in Internal Medicine and Hematology and developed his perspective on healthcare management and funding mechanisms through a wide variety of clinical experiences, including work in Kenya, New Zealand, Canada, Australia, and the United States. Dr. Fishman’s 20+ years of clinical treatment experience and exposure to multi-national health systems has reinforced his commitment to value-based care and a patient first approach, which measures the efficacy, toxicity and affordability of cancer treatment options, which put the patient in a position to achieve the best possible outcome.
