Abstract

To curtail increasing health care costs, the government has ushered in the era of the Accountable care organization (ACO). The purposes of this review are to evaluate the effects the ACO will have on the practice of interventional oncology and its role in cancer care and to explore methods to assimilate. Proposed action points include integration into the modern-day cancer center, adoption of an outpatient clinic, mandatory performance measures, and workflow and cost analysis. If adaptations are made, interventional oncology can continue its role in cancer treatment, will provide more effective care, and reach more patients in the new ACO.
