VitalSource™ GPO: Community oncology is facing unprecedented challenges in a new era of oncology care characterized by value-based care, consolidation, and evolving healthcare policies. As a leader in community oncology, what do you think is needed to ensure that community oncology practices thrive?

You describe yourself as a passionate physician advocate who promotes the need for physicians to be in charge of their own future. How can community oncologists empower themselves by becoming a physician leader?

Within the framework of MACRA, CMS allows for creation of Alternative Payment Models. APMs are a way of demonstrating to CMS that physcians are delivering the best care at the lowest cost for each patient.

As an innovator in healthcare policy, how can practices think more innovatively? What areas of healthcare are in need of innovation by community oncology?
