Q&A: Thyme Care’s Bobby Green, M.D., on Value-Based Care in Oncology
When the final numbers were tallied, only 44 oncology practices signed up to participate in the Enhancing Oncology Model, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation’s follow-up to its earlier value-based care model in this space, the Oncology Care Model. While those numbers might be disappointing, Bobby Green, M.D., president and chief medical officer at oncology-focused value-based care platform company Thyme Care, recently told Healthcare Innovation that the practices getting experience in value-based care now will benefit down the road.
Prior to joining Thyme Care, Green was chief medical officer at Flatiron Health, which has built up an oncology-focused EHR network and a de-identified database from more than 280 U.S. academic and community cancer clinics in order to enable large-scale real-world research. Before that, he was managing partner at Palm Beach Cancer Institute, where he helped lead its merger with Florida Cancer Specialists in 2013.
