Dr Roger Brito: What Patients Should Know About Alternative Payment Models, OCM

The healthcare triangle (patients, payers, and providers) begins with the patient, so we should include the patient in some of the decision-making, said Roger Brito, DO, national director for oncology, Aetna.

Transcript (slightly modified)

What should patients know about alternative payment models and OCM?

I don’t think patients should ever be scared of anything that’s happening in the oncology world, and I can tell you, representing Aetna, our goal is to look at our members, our patients. We want them to be well; we want them to continue to live healthy lives. So, we’re always going to make decisions based on their well-being. How we go about doing that is the complexity. I would love to have patients involved in the decision-making, and I think that’s something that’s interesting and new. But, I do believe that possibly could happen as we move forward, as we’re communicating and collaborating. I think if we have involvement, as I said that healthcare triangle: the point starts with the patient, so why not include the patient in some of these decisions? But the bottom line is, don’t be afraid of what’s going to happen. I think it’s exciting what’s happening.
