Oncology is changing rapidly as models of care and reimbursement evolve. We have seen this firsthand with the rapid expansion of telehealth services to combat the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
This challenge to our health system will have a lasting impact on how we deliver care. Changes made now will not disappear once the pandemic is over, and new approaches will continue to emerge. To adapt to these systemic alterations, every practice—and practitioner—needs to have a firm grasp of what the implications of such changes are and how they can respond.
In light of these new realities, the Community Oncology Alliance (COA) has adapted the 2020 Community Oncology Conference to a cutting-edge, all-virtual online platform. It will take place on the same dates, April 23-24, 2020, except it will come to you live from virtual presenters across the country.
Everyone can now join us to stay one step ahead of the latest developments in community oncology from the safety and comfort of their home. This also means that this must-attend event of the year is now 100% free to register for health care providers and practices.
The aim of the Community Oncology Conference is to provide education and tools for attendees to help their practices and patients for years to come. This year’s comprehensive agenda covers issues like telehealth implementation; overcoming pharmacy benefit manager challenges; the latest on oncology payment reform such as the Oncology Care Model and Oncology Care First; and clinical issues like genomic testing and clinical trials.
There is no manual for successfully managing a practice or providing excellent cancer care, which is why it is so important that we come together to discuss solutions to our shared challenges.
