Can you provide a sneak peek of some of your key talking points at Asembia?

I'll be talking about things that we've been doing and value-based cancer care, and certainly that covers a fairly broad expanse. We've been involved with a number of our oncology clinical partners at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey, with shared savings and moving into shared risk. We worked in non–small cell lung cancer, breast cancer, prostate, non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, colorectal, among others. And so that's what I'll be highlighting.

We also had an oncology medical home model, which was partly benchmarked from Dr. [Barbara] McAneny’s work and Dr. [John] Sprandio’s work and had some elements of the OCM [Oncology Care Model]—we did not formally participate in the OCM, and we’re, as a company, in the very early stages and some of the preliminary discussions around Capitol Hill on the OCM. But we elected to go our own way with our own value payment models and oncology medical home.
