Why did you join NCODA?

We joined to collaborate with community oncology practices/pharmacies to improve patient care. We also want to be able to pool our data with other practices to show payers the benefits of partnering with us and improve our contracting.

How did you hear about us?

We met Jan Montgomery from SCOA and she was giving us some advice on how to move forward with the pharmacy and then introduced us to NCODA

How can NCODA help you?

NCODA can help us by continuing to help practices all across America collaborate and share our innovative ideas to help increase patient outcomes and care.  It helps provide a unified voice for MIDs and makes payers aware of our unique offerings to the healthcare system.

How would you like to be more involved with NCODA?

Southern Oncology Specialists is open to helping NCODA in any way possible. Currently, we are trying to get more staff involved in NCODA to help grow the support, as well as help, develop educational information.

What are some challenges you face now or will face in the future?

Partnering with payers is becoming more difficult. We are in a unique position to have access to all of the patient history, but we face an uphill battle to prove how that translates to cost-savings for payers and better results for patients.
