The National Committee for Quality Assurance has tapped The West Clinic, an oncology practice in Memphis, Tenn., to join in an accountable care organization initiative that follows the Patient-Centered Medical Home approach. "Oncology practice is particularly suitable for this model since it provides vast longitudinal care to cancer patients, both those with active disease and those post-therapy with regard to some of their survivorship needs," according to Lee S. Schwartzberg, medical director at The West Clinic.
