Value-Based Cancer Care
At the recent AONN+ Annual Conference, experts in oncology navigation convened virtually with conference attendees to offer their insights in furthering the efficacy of navigation. This monograph will review the proceedings from 4 key sessions covering the timely topics of telehealth, mental health and the oncology patient, prehabilitation and rehabilitation, and value-based oncology care.
As oncology care shifts away from fee-for-service, understanding alternative payment models is crucial for navigators.
When it comes to cancer care, organizations tend to define value in terms of objective factors like efficacy, toxicity, and cost. But according to Elizabeth Franklin, PhD, MSW, executive director of the Cancer Policy Institute at the Cancer Support Community in Washington, DC, patients tend to define value differently when it comes to their care.
Prioritizing quality over quantity of care, value-based care and the alternative payment models it incorporates are complicated concepts to master. A primer for navigators dispelled some of this complexity.
Payers and hospital systems can benefit tremendously through enhanced patient experience, clinical outcomes, and return on investment that navigation programs provide.
