With the Oncology Care Model (OCM) coming to an end with no replacement formalized and the Radiation Oncology Model experiencing continued delays, participating cancer programs are considering how to maintain their focus on their journey toward value-based cancer care delivery. Specifically, the discontinuation of the OCM MEOS payments has caused participants to consider strategies to continue providing successful practice transformation programs and services without supplemental funding. This is leading cancer programs to consider alternative care settings and diversified service offerings. 

During this three-hour moderated workshop, panelists will explore strategies that cancer programs may consider to maintain their focus on delivering high-quality cancer care.
