Session Abstract

Session Synopsis: Value-based care models in complex diseases like cancer hold the most promise for being able to increase patient outcomes and lower the overall total cost of care. This session will explain how the secret to enabling the creation of successful value-based models is a precision data approach using Electronic Health Record data, with examples from a pilot between one of the country’s largest cancer centers and a large payer.
