Personalized dynamic cancer care plans

Carevive Systems provides personalized and dynamic cancer care plans for patients that improve clinical outcomes and enable oncology practices to operate in emerging value-based models. Our care plans continuously update to provide ongoing guidance to patients based on their experiences throughout the journey.

This process allows us to collect longitudinal Real-World Evidence (RWE) on the cancer patient experience that will drive better care delivery and oncolytic drug use and future development.

The company’s automated software enables each patient to receive his or her own unique, personalized care plans that can be customized and edited by oncology physicians and nurses at each clinic visit, in a way that is not possible with either electronic medical records or care management software. To develop our care plans, our software generates automated, personalized symptom assessment and management guidance based on individual patient diagnosis, treatment, and risk.

Carevive’s patient care plans and associated tools for clinicians facilitate patient-centered, coordinated, and integrated multi-disciplinary cancer care — all of which are concepts proven to decrease costs, improve clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.

What do we Offer?

We are oncology clinicians and scientists building tools to help cancer care teams provide patient-centered, coordinated, and integrated multidisciplinary care across the cancer continuum. We do this in partnership with thousands of cancer clinical and health services experts and our own software specialists.

  • Our automated software enables each patient to receive unique, personalized care plans that can be customized and edited by oncology physicians and nurses at each clinic visit, including evidence-based:
    • Treatment care plans meeting IOM Care Management Plan requirements
    • Distress and symptom management plans
    • Survivorship care plans… and the tools care teams need to effectively coordinate and resource these care plans
  • To develop our care plans, our software generates automated, personalized symptom and supportive care guidance based on individual patient diagnosis, treatment, and risk factors, and provide dynamic guidance to patients based on their experiences throughout their cancer journey.
  • In this process we collect longitudinal data on the cancer patient experience, thus offering real-world analytics to drive better care delivery, and in real-time to support cancer care teams.

Carevive’s services leverage our client success teams and our deep network of thousands of clinical, programmatic, and scientific advisors to help optimize your clinical and financial outcomes.

What Centers Choose Carevive?

Cancer programs join our network because they share our passion to transform cancer care delivery through science and best practice and engaging patients as partners in their own care.

They are the leaders in the value-based cancer care movement, and thus need smarter care planning, navigation, and supportive and palliative care solutions to ensure evidenced-aligned best practices and closer connections with their patients and caregivers.

Over 30 health systems around the country employ Carevive software for research and clinical use, publishing over 25 peer-reviewed oral and poster abstracts and manuscripts with our scientific team.

Value-Based Reimbursement Programs

Implementation of such models allow outpatient cancer practices to participate in and succeed with new post-reform, value-based reimbursement programs such as the CMS’ five-year demonstration project named the Oncology Care Model (OCM), announced in July 2016. Two hundred US cancer centers have just adopted the OCM through CMS for Medicare-eligible patients, and more will follow as 16 private payers have agreed to participate, many of which are not limiting their coverage to Medicare beneficiaries. OCM’s two-part payment system incorporates Per-Beneficiary-Per-Month (MEOS) payments and a potential for performance-based payments (PBP) tied to meeting performance indicators and cost savings.

Each year, a practice with 16 oncologists can receive $2.3 million in MEOS payments and $6.6 million in PBP, in addition to traditional fee-for-service reimbursement. Required enhanced patient services include the use of care plans, adherence to evidence-based practice, navigation services, 24-7 care team access, and other practice transformation methodologies. Carevive enables participation by offering technology and clinical expertise to meet requirements and maximize performance payments using key performance indicators and RWE analytics to monitor and improve care design.

The Oncology Care Model features two risk arrangement options. The first is a one-sided risk arrangement for the duration of the model, but a practice must qualify for PBP by the end of the third performance year. The second track is a phased-in, two-sided risk arrangement that features one-sided risk in the first two performance years and symmetric two-sided risk thereafter for the duration of the model.

I can’t say enough about the Carevive Care Planning System… I think its extremely helpful in making the visit much more complete and efficient …With all the issues cancer patients can have, there’s only so much time one has in a day, so the care plan improves efficiency by helping me 'cut to the chase’ and highlight the top issues from both the patient and clinical perspective, focus the visit on these, and then provide them with targeted resources and referrals for their individual concerns and needs.

The Carevive system helps identify problems and issues that patients don’t tell me otherwise. This allows me to direct the encounter to patient needs and goals of care in a way I am not typically able.
