Contract Award: CMS Oncology Care Model (OCM)

CORMAC has been awarded the CMS’ Oncology Care Model (OCM), an 8-year contract. OCM is a payment model designed to test the effect of better care coordination, improved access to practitioners, and appropriate clinical care on health outcomes and total cost of care for Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) beneficiaries with cancer. Model participants include physician group practices and solo practitioners, collectively referred to as “practices,” that administer chemotherapy for cancer. OCM encourages participating practices to improve care and lower costs through episode-based payments that financially incentive high-quality, coordinated care.

CORMAC partnered with CECity and Deloitte. CORMAC will support CMS to provide, customize, and maintain a data registry for the Oncology Care Model (OCM), which aims to improve health and lower costs for beneficiaries by promoting practice transformation and appropriate clinical care. The data registry will collect and consolidate data from multiple sources, calculate performance on quality measures, export raw and aggregate quality and clinical measure data, and allow for the easy exchange and sharing of OCM data to model participants and other entities.
