Oncology Care Model
Oncology navigation is an ever-changing field that requires dynamic models of care to meet the needs of the patient. In January’s Facebook Live event, experts discussed a variety of navigation models and the role of the navigator.
The quality metrics that were put in place with the Oncology Care Model (OCM) support the lowering of costs. When navigators use AONN+'s Metrics Toolkit, their metrics can coincide with those that are being used in OCM.
Rani Khetarpal shares the 3 payment avenues for the Oncology Care Model.
Within the Oncology Care Model, the largest costs are attributed to drugs and in-patient hospitalizations. Oncology nurse and patient navigators are essential to reducing emergency room utilization and hospitalizations.
The Oncology Care Model has made a positive impact on improving access and appropriateness to care while keeping the care patient-centered.
Rani Khetarpal shares how models like OCM can be successful. Utilizing an outcomes-based clinical pathway tool and practice transformation are large factors in the success of the models.
The Oncololgy Care Model is a total cost of care model, meaning that within a 6-month episode, the oncologist is responsible for the cost associated with that particular beneficiary.
Rani Khetarpal shares how she became involved in AONN+ and why she took a leadership role in the organization.
Rani Khetarpal explains what goes into making the decision of moving into a 2-sided risk model along with the benefits and challenges of the model.
