The National Cancer Treatment Alliance (NCTA) is a clinically integrated network (CIN) of leading oncology practices and pharmacies across the country.
The unique structure of a CIN allows NCTA practices to work together and directly with health plan sponsors to ensure patients receive high quality, patient-centered, and lower-cost cancer care. NCTA member practices are accountable for the care they provide and must prove their success through tracking and reporting of quality and value measures.
The NCTA is a for-profit benefit corporation subsidiary of the Community Oncology Alliance (COA), a national non-profit dedicated solely to independent, community oncology practices and, most importantly, the patients they serve. Through the NCTA, we are seeking to provide a solution to employers and health plan sponsors who are increasingly frustrated by an expensive, complex, and unfriendly cancer care system.
NCTA is also leveraging the expertise of its national oncology network to provide information, resources, and educational materials on key issues in cancer care to employers and employees, ranging from fundamental education on molecular and genetic testing; the importance and value of biosimilars; and understanding and assessing cancer care costs and quality.
