What incentives will be necessary for physicians to take on 2-sided risk?

I think there will really have to be some detailed and not as much guarantees, but some really clear metrics, so that they know that they will be achievable in order for the physicians to take 2-sided risk. I think a lot of those are surrounding making sure that we’re all on the same page with accurately measuring quality and what that means to a patient. So some of those could be financial incentives or ensuring that we’re in compliance with certain measure that the physician feels that is really going to drive quality for the oncology patients. You know, making sure that the totality of the patient Is really well defined versus just what’s happening in the clinic at the oncology office.
