Testing Sites

The Optimal Care Coordination Model (OCCM) focuses on 13 Assessment Areas with high impact on optimal care. Each assessment area of the Model has 5 levels, with level 1 representing the most basic provision of care and level 5 representing optimal best practice. The Model is designed to help cancer programs improve to any achievable target level within a selected assessment area. Each cancer program’s starting point will be different, as will its targeted level for near- and long-term improvement. Depending on the assessment area, achieving a level 5 will be attainable for some programs and may be aspirational for others.

Testing Sites will use the OCCM for program self-assessment, to develop one (or more) quality improvement (QI) projects in one (or more) of the Model’s 13 assessment areas,  and conduct the QI project(s) over a 12-month testing period, from October 2017-September 2018. Results from the testing phase will be used to further refine and modify the Model to ensure that it is a practical, easy-to-use guide for cancer programs interested in advancing patient-centered, multidisciplinary, coordinated care for their lung cancer patients on Medicaid.

*Under the terms of the grant, programs in the following states are excluded from participation in this project: AL, GA, KY, MS, NC, TN, SC, and WV.
