The American Journal of Managed Care Presents Implementing Alternative Payment Models for Improved Population Health: Experiences From the OCM Webcast

The American Journal of Managed Care®, the leading peer-reviewed
journal dedicated to issues in managed care, will host the webcast
“Implementing Alternative Payment Models for Improved Population Health:
Experiences From the Oncology Care Model (OCM)” on June 28 at noon, 3
p.m. and 6 p.m. (EST). This webcast offers payers, healthcare
practitioners, and practice administrators the opportunity to hear a
distinguished panel as they review and compare OCM implementation in
community and academic practices, discuss performance feedback from the
initial reconciliation reports, and the impact of program updates,
continuing needs, and potential next steps for the Model.

“We are excited to host this continuing program that shares practical
insights from practice leaders actively engaged in the OCM,” said Jeff
Prescott, PharmD, senior vice president, Managed Markets at AJMC®.
“Attendees will gain deep insight while exploring the effectiveness and
efficiency of this payment and care delivery model.”

The panel will be moderated by Bruce A. Feinberg, DO, vice
president and chief medical officer, Cardinal Health Specialty
Solutions. Feinberg will be joined by distinguished OCM experts Bruce
J. Gould, MD, medical director, Northwest Georgia Oncology
Centers; president, Community Oncology Alliance and Mark Liu,
director of strategic initiative for the oncology service line,
Mount Sinai Health System.

The OCM, a 5-year alternative payment model pilot designed by CMS, aims
to improve patient care by appropriately aligning financial incentives
with care coordination, appropriateness of care, and access to care for
beneficiaries receiving chemotherapy. This model is intended to deliver
quality care at an affordable cost by combining a two-part payment
system, which includes an upfront payment to support infrastructure and
opportunities for performance-based payments focused on lowered total
costs during an episode of care.
