Five ACCC Cancer Program Members served as Development Sites for the first phase of the Optimal Care Coordination for Lung Cancer Patients on Medicaid project. Working with these sites, ACCC documented the current state of care coordination for Medicaid patients with lung cancer. With guidance from the project’s Advisory Committee and Technical Expert Panel (TEP), information gleaned from the Development Sites helped inform draft principles for the development of the optimal care coordination model (OCCM) for this patient population.
Between August and October 2016, the Development Sites hosted site visits during which ACCC staff interviewed key cancer center team members, Medicaid patients, and referring providers to better understand current care coordination processes and effective practices. Visit each development site’s web page (below) to access summary reports from these site visits. Development Sites will continue to participate for the length of this three-year project.
During project Phases II and III, the beta version of the OCCM is being deployed and assessed at seven Testing Sites, selected through a competitive application process.
