Relationship Opportunities

Affiliation Models

We offer two models through which an oncology practice can become part of The US Oncology Network and gain the many benefits our organization provides.  Practices can choose the affiliation model that best meets their needs and goals.

Comprehensive Strategic Alliance (CSA)

In the CSA model, practices enter into long-term agreements with McKesson to enable the success of the entire practice. Physicians maintain their independence, but get the support of a management company that has deep expertise in practice management.

Radiation Joint Venture (JV) Model

In the JV model, practices and McKesson each own a share of a radiation oncology asset and participate in the financial performance of that asset. Physicians maintain their independence, but get the support of a management company that has deep expertise in radiation oncology management.

Join Our Network

Both models enable several benefits for physician partners

Independence

Physicians retain ownership of their practices and control over how they practice

Innovation

Access to innovative solutions and tools that span practice operations and patient care

Alignment

Business agreements that align incentives for us to win together

Community

Involvement in a community of physicians dedicated to a common purpose

The Network makes a huge impact in our ability to survive by having a larger financial entity secure the financial management of the practice. At a time of great uncertainty, The US Oncology Network provides a vision of a more secure community oncology practice, by offering a more attractive alternative to hospitals.
