Oncology Convergence will be attending and exhibiting at the ACCC 36th National Oncology Conference in Orlando next week and hope to see you there! We’ve got some great success stories to share since our last meeting in Washington. Stop by the booth to discuss actionable strategies that can help you create meaningful change and improve processes.

A great way to start is with a revenue cycle assessment:

Private equity pushes into healthcare: 8 latest deals

    When you’re integrating an oncology practice into your organization, you may find that oncology billing is an entirely different animal than “regular” medical billing.

    We can ensure that your oncology practice acquisition provides the financial boost to your hospital system that spurred the deal in the first place.

Proper EHR integration and optimization for your specific oncology billing use case will get your integration off on the right foot.

ASTRO comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services regarding their proposed radiation oncology alternative payment model

    There are some HUGE numbers in play with these latest proposals.

Astro comments on proposed CMS guidelines:

“However, an ASTRO analysis estimates that the RO Model would cut payments to required participants by approximately $320 million during the 5-year period—an excessive amount that would undermine this unique opportunity. For the model to be successful, ASTRO recommends specific, significant changes to the proposal that will incentivize the use of high-quality, efficient radiation therapy treatments that drive value-based reform while still providing savings for Medicare.”

Thanks for reading! Again, we’d love to see you in Orlando. If you aren’t attending, feel free to reach out if I can be of assistance in any way.
