The University of Chicago Medicine and Aetna Inc. Form Oncology Medical Home
Jul 1 15
The University of Chicago Medicine and Aetna Inc. announced a collaboration to create an oncology medical home that is designed to improve the care experience for cancer patients. This approach allows teams of cancer specialists to work together to care for a patient with a cancer diagnosis. The model will give UChicago Medicine the responsibility to arrange appropriate care that is continuous and proactive. The model is part of a strategic decision to transition from fee-for-service reimbursement to value-based payment. Value-based arrangements are emerging as a solution to address rising health care costs, clinical inefficiency and duplication of services. These arrangements also make it easier for people to get the care they need. In value-based models, doctors and hospitals are paid for helping keep people healthy and for improving the health of those who have chronic conditions in an evidence-based, cost-effective way. The operating principles of the UChicago Medicine and Aetna oncology medical home include: An orientation to the whole person; Evidence-based, personalized medical care; Coordinated and integrated care; Quality and safety; Enhanced access to care. The oncology medical home arrangement begins on July 1, 2015.
