Practice Engagement Program

Practice Engagement Program

The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) continues to monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).  As the global impact of COVID-19 grows daily, our priority is always on the health and safety of our community, including ASCO members and staff.   As a result, onsite visits to practices and participation in conferences have been suspended through April.  These onsite visits will be converted to virtual meetings for presentation and demonstration purposes.  Thank you for your ongoing patience and support as we take precautions to keep everyone safe & healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.   Please contact with any questions or concerns.

The cancer care environment faces unprecedented challenges. Oncology practices must adapt to sweeping changes in physician reimbursement, learn entirely new systems for quality reporting, and adhere to payer utilization management strategies designed to reduce healthcare costs—all while providing the highest quality cancer care, including complex treatment advances.

To help practices remain viable and thrive, ASCO has launched the Practice Engagement Program, a concierge service for oncology practices. Through this program, ASCO provides practices a single point of contact to help them identify and connect with the ASCO tools, programs, and resources that can best support their needs. Available by phone or email, or even site visits, your Practice Engagement Program point of contact can help answer a variety of questions, including:

  • “Does ASCO have resources to help us improve our Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) scores?”
  • “How can my practice benchmark our performance against other practices on business and operations metrics?”
  • “Can ASCO help my practice transition from volume-based to value-based care?”
  • “How can I demonstrate my practice’s commitment to quality?”

After understanding the needs of each specific practice, the Practice Engagement Team can identify specific ASCO resources to help resolve outstanding challenges, prepare for pending changes, and succeed in an ever-changing practice environment. Resources include:
