Solutions that Put Patients First
It has been estimated that oncologists would need 29 hours a day to keep up with the research and findings of new cancer treatments that enter the market each day. Oncology Analytics relieves this burden through a combination of technology-enabled services, supported by our dedicated clinical team of board-certified oncology physicians and pharmacists.
OneUM™ for Pharmacy and Medical Benefit Drugs
OneUM™ is the only purpose-built for oncology solution available today that supports both oral and infused cancer therapies. We employ state of the art technology paired with evidence-based, real-world analytics to evaluate and approve treatments for cancer care—often in seconds.
Used by oncologists to support 5 million health plan members in the US and Puerto Rico, OneUM covers the full spectrum of therapeutics, across all cancer types and stages, including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation therapy, genetic and molecular testing, and supportive care agents. Our extensive anti-cancer protocol library is continuously updated with the latest evidence-based information, which provides the most current options for value-based treatment paths for every patient case.
Oncology Analytics employs teams of board-certified medical oncologists, hematologists, and radiation oncologists, ensuring your providers will only speak to a true peer when discussing a member’s care. Our clinical oncology team has deep expertise in medical and pharmacy benefits as it relates to cancer drugs. They focus daily on identifying and evaluating new trends and researching appropriate therapy combinations, including biosimilars where applicable.
THINGS HAVE CHANGED
Since 2018 alone, the FDA approved 121 new cancer indications, including 49 novel cancer drug entities. The FDA has even launched a Real-Time Oncology Review (RTOR) program, which allows the FDA to review early drug data in advance of a formal application. Under this program, one oncology drug gained FDA approval within two weeks of the application filing.
Checking the box that a cancer therapy is supported by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) alone for coverage determinations is no longer enough. With so many NCCN supported options, health plans need to ensure their providers choose the most cost-effective option, tailored to provide the best outcome for the patient’s specific cancer. Oncology Analytics takes a more comprehensive approach by reviewing not only NCCN, but also FDA approvals, peer-reviewed journals using the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) coverage rules, and the guidance of our internal oncologists who have decades of experience caring for patients.
At Oncology Analytics, each oncology review is evaluated using a patient-first approach, which balances the specific clinical need of each patient against comorbidities, toxicities, and cost. This approach facilitates our ability to provide treatment recommendations that reflect the most current evidence-based findings, even when there is a delay between when research is presented and its inclusion in NCCN.
Oncology Analytics’ OneUM platform has achieved a provider satisfaction score of over 95% by the 4,000 treating oncologists and their teams who use the platform daily. The submission process for prior authorization requests is completely automated and eliminates the need for faxes and burdensome administrative processes. Network providers can access the platform standalone or by integration into a health plan’s existing portal via single sign-on (SSO).
