Driving Culture Change In The Pursuit Of Value: A Q&A With Dr. Mark Walshauser
CCSI’s Dr. Mark Walshauser recently spoke with New Century Health about how value based efforts have spurred culture change in CCSI’s community practice.
High-value oncology pathways are key tools for reducing cancer drug spend, but they’re most effective when coupled with tactics to engage physicians and practices. In the May issue of JCO Oncology Practice, experts from Cancer Care Specialists of Illinois (CCSI) and New Century Health (NCH) described how they collaborated to reduce cancer drug spend by 13.5%, relative to other practices participating in the Oncology Care Model (OCM). By marrying pathways with regular performance analytics, value-focused meetings and other support, they have fostered a clinical environment in which efficacy and value have become top of mind.
