Electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePROs) are important quality measures which can also improve oncology care by expanding patient-centered care and increasing the ability for quick reporting, technology assisted triage, and symptom prioritization and management. What’s more, ePROs and remote symptom monitoring initiatives are becoming increasingly critical components in existing and anticipated alternative payment models (e.g., Oncology Care First). This webinar will provide the foundational elements related to electronic patient-reported outcomes and remote patient monitoring for oncology practices and programs that are preparing to implement—or sustain—value-based care payment models.
The workshop will review the current landscape of alternative payment models, assess experiences with both federal and commercial models, and identify needs of the cancer care delivery community going forward. In addition, workshop facilitators will help you better understand your likelihood for success under different risk scenarios, including the upcoming Radiation Oncology Model proposed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
As a result of market pressures to expand value-based healthcare in oncology, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) developed the Alternative Payment Model Coalition (APMC) to gain important insights into how alternative payment models (APMs) impact cancer delivery. The APMC focuses primarily on providing education about APMs and other value-based care programs in cancer care.
The workshop provided an overview of APMs and targeted government and commercial programs relevant to oncology providers. We delved into the key components of program implementation, helped participants better understand their likelihood for success under different risk scenarios, and provided a step-by-step guide to setting up and implementing a new APM program. Workshop facilitators addressed organizational frameworks required to deploy an APM as well as critical strategies for payer negotiation.
