RO Model Seminar - Webinar

December 7, 2019

Earlier this summer, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation Center (CMMI) unveiled an alternative payment model for radiation oncology. The final rule describing the requirements associated with the "RO Model" are expected to be released in November. The model represents a significant shift in payment policy for the field of radiation oncology and while ASTRO believes that the field is well positioned to succeed under these new payment models there will be significant challenges associated with implementation.

This webinar will be held in conjunction with an in-person meeting on December 7, 2019 from 1:00- 5:00 p.m. EDT.

Target Audience

This seminar will help members of the radiation oncology community understand how the RO Model affects their practices and patient care. ASTRO physician volunteers and staff will share details regarding the RO Model construct and provide comprehensive insight regarding practice preparation for model implementation.
