The goal of the CMS Oncology Care Mode (OCM) is to improve care coordination, appropriateness and access while reducing costs. But the OCM program is complex, and advanced risk contracts with CMS can be complicated to navigate. Dr. James Lloyd Wade III describes the experience of Cancer Care Specialists of Illinois in the OCM and how a partnership with New Century Health positioned them for success through ongoing, real-time analytics and evidence based, clinical pathways with a proven track record of reducing drug spend without compromising quality. Listen to his experience.
"We can go very quickly and make a decision: Is this pathway or this choice of pathways the right thing for my patient in the context of their illness and everything else going on at that time? It's a very fast tool that brings a lot of information into focus in a short time." - Dr. James Lloyd Wade III
