This case compares and contrasts four different models for delivering cancer care in India and the US. Students are asked to select the best model in its alignment with the Six Forces in those two countries and Africa, to which one of the models is considering expansion, and intrinsic business characteristics. The Indian models are all focused factories, but one is a hub and spoke model, with a radiology hub and ambulatory spokes, while the other offers only ambulatory services. The U.S. models are all focused factory hospitals, one academic and the other a private, for-profit firm located on the grounds of teaching hospitals.
