BCBST, Oncology Group Launch Oncology Medical Home

BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee (BCBST) and community oncology practice Tennessee Oncology recently launched a value-based cancer care program aimed at providing high-quality, cost-effective health care. The oncology medical home (OMH) will be a model for future programs, says the Blues plan.

The initiative launched in October for BlueCross commercial networks P, S and L members. It will support members beginning with their diagnosis and then through treatment and follow-up care. The partners will work to make sure that best practices in care planning and treatment are followed, that care guidelines are met, that patients get the correct treatment at the right time and that patient-centered care is provided.
