ACCC Launches Online Community to Support Oncology Care Model (OCM) Practices
Rockville, MD—The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) today unveiled a virtual community for Oncology Care Model (OCM) practices to share tips, tools, and resources as they navigate new transformational cancer care delivery and payment models. Through this one-of-a-kind online platform, invited practices will gain access to need-to-know information and leading experts on trending OCM issues. The community will foster robust dialogue and provide extensive peer-to-peer learning opportunities.
The online community is part of the ACCC OCM Collaborative, a broader effort to support OCM practices throughout implementation of CMMI’s first oncology-specific payment reform model. The Collaborative provides a forum to share practical, how-to resources and best practices to assist in implementing and ultimately succeeding in the OCM. The Collaborative’s new virtual community platform will enable OCM participants to share their experiences, challenges, and strategies in real time, learning from one another as they implement the model.
As practices sign their participation agreements, look to the ACCC OCM Collaborative in the coming months for live meetings, conference calls, and more.
The online OCM Collaborative virtual community is an invitation-only platform. If you have questions or if your program plans to participate in the OCM and you have not received an invitation to join the ACCC OCM Collaborative, please contact Leah Ralph, ACCC Director of Health Policy, at LRalph@accc-cancer.org.
