Alternative Payment Model Coalition Workshop: Fall 2020
As a result of market pressures to expand value-based healthcare in oncology, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) developed the Alternative Payment Model Coalition (APMC) to gain important insights into how alternative payment models (APMs) impact cancer delivery. The APMC focuses primarily on providing education about APMs and other value-based care programs in cancer care.
The workshop provided an overview of APMs and targeted government and commercial programs relevant to oncology providers. We delved into the key components of program implementation, helped participants better understand their likelihood for success under different risk scenarios, and provided a step-by-step guide to setting up and implementing a new APM program. Workshop facilitators addressed organizational frameworks required to deploy an APM as well as critical strategies for payer negotiation.
