ASCO’s Payment Reform Model Supports Higher Quality, More Affordable Cancer Care
The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) has developed a payment reform model designed to improve the quality and affordability of care for patients with cancer. The ASCO model will allow oncology practices to successfully navigate the transforming healthcare environment and transition to alternative payment models.
ASCO is now working to evaluate its Patient-Centered Oncology Payment: Payment Reform to Support Higher Quality, More Affordable Cancer Care (PCOP) payment reform proposal across multiple practices in diverse settings. The society recently advanced these efforts by announcing the ASCO COME HOME program. This new initiative builds on the foundation set out in PCOP by ensuring that the full range of services needed by patients with cancer are supported within a value-based reimbursement system that increases patient satisfaction and cost-savings.
