Abstract The Oncology Medical Home program demonstrates an effective working model for restructuring cancer payments and care. It complements and in fact takes oncology pathways programs to a new level through creation of practice-specific preferred regimens. It eliminates practices' financial dependence on drug margins and reduces the current misalignment between cancer payments and cancer outcomes by taking a patient-centric approach. Further, it enhances practice payments for cognitive services provided by the oncology team and rewards teams for improving patient care and reducing avoidable ED visits and inpatient care. Provider-payer partnerships are necessary to evaluate experimental payment models that create greater provider accountability for Triple Aim outcomes of patient experience, individual and population health outcomes, and per capita cost.
