The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®), the leading multimedia peer-reviewed journal dedicated to issues in managed care, will host the Patient-Centered Oncology Care® (PCOC) 2020 conference virtually on September 25.
The program will be co-chaired by Joseph Alvarnas, M.D., editor-in-chief of AJMC®’s Evidence-Based Oncology™ and vice president of government affairs, senior medical director for employer strategy, and associate clinical professor in the Department of Hematology and Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation at City of Hope; and Kashyap Patel, M.D., associate editor of EBO, chief executive officer of Carolina Blood and Cancer Care Associates, vice president of the Community Oncology Alliance, and trustee and clinical affairs chair for the Association of Community Cancer Centers.
The virtual conference will feature speakers who will engage in panel discussions on policy, precision health, chronic care management, and the ways in which technology and telehealth are affecting care and value-based medicine.
Mr. Jordan, president and CEO of Regional Cancer Care Associates (RCCA), one of the nation’s largest networks of oncology specialists, will be participating in the “Oncology Care First: Policy and Treatment Implications” panel, which is comprised of leaders from current Oncology Care Model (OCM) practices.
RCCA is one of fewer than 200 medical practices in the country selected to participate in the OCM, a recent Medicare initiative aimed at improving care coordination and access to and quality of care for Medicare beneficiaries undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
PCOC co-chair Dr. Alvarnas spoke of the expertise Mr. Jordan brings to the panel.
“Terrill Jordan is a great leader and visionary in the delivery of high-quality cancer care services that really are emblematic of the value-centric future of cancer care,” said Dr. Alvarnas. “His insights as a leader and a strategic thinker should help to energize and focus our panel, not just on the key issues in cancer care, but in what an innovative and sustainable future state might look like.”
Under Mr. Jordan’s leadership, the Hackensack, NJ-based RCCA has become a national leader in high-quality, value-based community oncology care.
Prior to his current position, Mr. Jordan, who graduated from New York University School of Law with an LL.M. and received J.D. and B.S. degrees from the University of Florida, served as RCCA’s vice president and chief legal officer, focusing on health care legal oversight, providing strategic advice, and supervising commercial negotiations and mergers and acquisitions as part of RCCA’s senior management team.
Conference attendees will gain invaluable insight into the rapidly changing oncology care landscape and have an opportunity to network with peers and experts representing all stakeholders in oncology patient-centered care.
