We help you focus on what matters most—
patient care

Optimize access and purchasing power

The cost of a drug should never prohibit you from providing your patients with the care they need. That's why you depend on having reliable access to the most advanced collection of therapies entering the market. With the aggregated purchasing power of a tightly-aligned GPO and distributor, we can even help you bring dispensing capabilities to your practice—ensuring your patients can get everything they need in one place.

Navigate industry changes

The healthcare industry evolves constantly. To stay ahead of the curve, you need dedicated resources to help you navigate the transition from fee-for-service to fee-for-value reimbursement. Our team of experienced professionals will help you demonstrate the real, measurable value of community oncology, and meet merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS) reporting requirements—taking the burden of reporting off your staff and giving you peace of mind.

Advance the quality of patient care

Clinical trials and research are critical to advancing patient care and can provide additional revenue for your practice. But many community oncology practices struggle to match the right patients with the right research opportunities. When you join our extensive research network, you will engage with other community-based oncology practices to broaden your research expertise and increase patient access to clinical trials.

Your Smart GPO

What does it mean to be a Smart GPO? For us, it means using data and actionable insights to support your practice in the transition to value-based care. It means providing analytics tools to help you align with national guidelines. And it means using empirical evidence to put patient outcomes at the heart of your practice's health and sustainability.

When you join our Smart GPO, you become part of a network of community oncology practices making data-backed decisions to advance the quality of patient care. That's having a smart partner in your corner.
