The OMH Standards focus on oncology and assess care in the following areas:

  • Basic Eligibility—Physician commitment to the OMH model, electronic health records (EHR), and using data to measure performance.
  • Patient Engagement—Empower and educate patients to understand their treatments and the side effects, where to go for medical care, and financial counseling.
  • Expanded Access—Provide patients with same day (24/7) urgent care on weekdays, weekends, holidays, and evenings to avoid emergency department visits.
  • Evidence-Based Medicine—Follow standardized evidence-based guidelines consistent with National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) or American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO), demonstrate safe medication usage, and appropriate utilization of laboratory and imaging study resources and encourage clinical trial enrollment.
  • Comprehensive Team-Based Care—Focus on addressing the full scope of patient needs (medical, economic, and psychosocial) and developing relationships with external providers and hospitals providing care to the OMH’s patients.
  • Quality Improvement—Continually review and measure the care within the practice and compare performance to other practices. Demonstrate the provision of high-quality care through performance summaries and data submission.
