Connecting Payers and Physicians for Improved Patient Care
Effective management of cancer quality and costs has been hindered by traditional pricing controls and utilization, and disease management policies that often place health plans and physicians at odds with one another. Efficient cancer care requires an advanced approach that integrates services and aligns incentives for consistent care delivery across the cancer care continuum.
But a holistic solution requires all of the players.
Patients, physicians, health plans and employers all share a commitment to improving the delivery of cancer care treatment and reducing the increasing burden of associated costs.
Innovent Oncology brings these key players together to address the top three oncology cost drivers with a collaborative and integrated model of care.
Innovent Oncology begins with Level I Pathways, evidence-based guidelines that re-direct the wide range of treatments driving tremendous disparities in oncology care today into more precise, clinically proven treatment options. Clear, evidence-based clinical standards – developed by practicing community oncologists – are the foundation for treatment selection and quality patient care. Reportable treatment comparisons identify provider compliance and facilitate performance-based reimbursement.
Through Patient Support Services (PSS), Innovent Oncology enables oncologists to proactively manage a member’s disease between office visits with regular outreach to the member and focused education specific to his or her condition. This increases the likelihood of member adherence to their treatment plan and reduced emergency room utilization and hospitalizations.
Advance Care Planning facilitates open, frank conversations between the oncology care team and the patient and his or her family regarding disease progression and documentation of patient treatment preferences, including palliative care and hospice. This proactive approach eases patient distress, increases satisfaction with care and ensures more appropriate utilization of healthcare resources.
End results achieved through Innovent Oncology:
- Patient, physician and payer connectivity
- More consistent care
- Predictable costs
- A better experience for all
