Delivering efficient, high-quality cancer care is greatly enhanced by integrated service delivery, focused on keeping patients at the center of coordinated care.

When forging collaborative physician and hospital relationships, or optimizing current organizational opportunities to deliver value-based oncology care, ECG facilitates the process.

ECG provides organizational models and approaches for collaborative relationships and develops financial pro formas underpinning goal alignment. Working with your corporate counsel or law firms specializing in oncology alignment, ECG delivers work products tailored to your project needs.

ECG physician alignment and partnership services include:

  • Providing models and facilitating discussions to achieve alignment goals.
  • Developing service volume and financial projections that inform alignment discussions.
  • Structuring comanagement agreements.
  • Projecting compensation requirements.
  • Partnering with internal or external legal counsel to support alignment goals.
  • Identifying coordinated care and oncology model opportunities within oncology practices, with hospital partners and clinically integrated networks.

Compensation is personal, for both providers and administrators, so it’s no surprise that discussions about compensation planning are often complex and contentious. Yet when these conversations are facilitated properly and compensation plans are designed well, they can serve as a powerful catalyst for rallying providers around shared goals of improving quality, productivity, and the overall patient experience.

Cancer care reimbursement models are transitioning from volume to value, and organizations are pursuing greater clinical and financial integration with physician partners. How cancer programs choose to respond to this transition and the compensation models they employ will significantly affect their ability to recruit and retain high-quality providers, align behaviors with organizational strategy, and ultimately thrive in a value-based world.

Our rich experience, combined with our proprietary research and benchmarking tools, uniquely positions ECG as the industry leader in compensation planning and incentive design. We possess the political sensitivity and technical skill to design plans that are embraced by providers, while our methodology ensures that the arrangements we propose are representative of your organization’s culture, values, and business strategy.

ECG physician compensation services include:

  • Benchmarking and market assessments.
  • Value-based transition planning.
  • Compensation plan development and facilitation.
