Rising healthcare costs represent a national challenge and a “call to action,” which requires collaboration across platforms to devise practical solutions while keeping patients’ best interests at heart, says Andrew L. Pecora, MD.
 
Oncology physicians share in this responsibility, says the doctor. He has been involved in the creation of the Cancer Outcomes Tracking Analysis (COTA), a health outcomes measurement and tracking tool that Pecora says enables physicians to achieve the “Goldilocks” target—neither too much care, nor too little. 
 
Pecora says his fellow physicians have contributed to the development of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Oncology Care Model of improving value and reducing expense, along with other types of reimbursement models.
