This discussion is aimed at raising the understanding and importance of value-based reimbursement, where physicians are measured based on the quality of the care they provide to a payer's membership through evidence-based medicine and quality metrics and not necessarily on the quantity of care provided. During the meeting, Drs. Kolodziej and Hoverman will present findings from their recent studies on the increasing and unsustainable costs of cancer care, and how evidence-based pathways are a cost-effective solution that does not compromise outcomes. Through their experiences with payers, they will also discuss how pathways can provide the foundation to successfully transition to value-based reimbursement.

The US Oncology Network believes oncologists need to drive practical solutions to the nation's critical healthcare issues, and regularly hosts Webinar events to connect and collaborate with other forward-thinking physicians.
