Vision of The Network
The US Oncology Network is a community of like-minded physicians who are committed to the future of oncology, the value of the integrated care model, the importance of evidence-based medicine, and the benefits of collaborating with each other to provide advanced care to their patients. As a result, they are able to build healthy and sustainable practices and improve their quality of life.
We believe the current system of reimbursement threatens the health of community-based cancer care. Working together, we have the power to preserve and expand patient access to high-quality, evidence-based cancer care. We’ll do this by realigning reimbursement to recognize and reward high-quality patient care. We believe that this is the key to ensuring the long-term health of community-based cancer care — where the vast majority of Americans fight cancer.

Our Platform for Effective Cancer Care
Physicians in The US Oncology Network, in collaboration with McKesson Specialty Health, work to bring about a world where: 
• Nationwide clinical collaboration ensures the highest level of patient care
• Payment policies incentivize physicians to provide high-quality, evidence-based care
• Practice healthcare IT systems:
o Provide insight and support at the point of care
o Rapidly identify patients for clinical trials
o Pave the way for true personalized medicine
• All cancer patients:
o Have access to integrated outpatient care in the community where they live
o Receive high-quality, evidence-based, comprehensive care
o Have access to clinical trials offering the latest effective therapies
o Opt for treatment at their local community practice — not because it’s close by, but because it offers superior cancer care and an improved patient experience
