Advancing Evidence-Based Practice Through Radiation Oncology Episode Payment
We are working with Penn Medicine and Independence Blue Cross to develop and test the first truly global episode payment for radiation oncology services. The Radiation Oncology Episode of Care program was launched in August of 2019 and is ongoing. Simultaneously, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a proposal to test bundle payments for radiation oncology services for 17 types of cancer.
This study is currently in progress.
