Decreased revenues and increased costs demand that managers opt for products and services that allow their offices to work smarter and more efficiently. OPR has evaluated, analyzed, and negotiated contracts on behalf of our community oncology members. Over 100 hours go into every contract we negotiate including a legal review for member protection. Who else works so hard for their members?
While participation in all OPRbiz initiatives is voluntary, the opportunity for savings of time and money increases with each program an office adopts.
OPR has negotiated very favorable contracts for practices who wish to take advantage of any of the following services. After reviewing these offerings, please contact OPR at (248) 549-4057 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further details or enrollment information.
EOBOne-Revenue Management Program: OPR has negotiated best in class pricing for members who needed to increase their cash flow. Our members find this program increases “first-time paid” claims, maximizes the “crossover” of Medicare claims, increases staff’s productivity immediately, and monitors payers adherence to their contracts. The BCBSM Clinical Pathways require eobONE installation and all OPR members benefit from substantial savings when participating in this initiative.
Medical/Surgical Supplies: OPR’s contract with Henry Schein, the largest distributor of healthcare products and services to office-based practitioners, provides an estimated savings of at least 15% for our practices as well as the opportunity to benefit from many other potential discounts.
Account Receivable Solutions, Inc. Collections Serives Program: Your total solutions provider for non-delinquent and delinquent patient accounts. Their goal has been to develop long-term quality client partnerships by clearly identifying each client’s specific needs and requirements, and meeting or exceeding them, every day. The quality of their efforts has resulted in a cooperative atmosphere of confidence and trust, leading to outstanding patient relationships, lower bad debt write offs and a more consistent collection cycle.

This site is free to OPR members and provides policies and procedures; forms; checklists; job descriptions; a rolodex of consultants, pharma consultants, associations and patient support; a library containing management and healthcare books (powered by Amazon); and more!
OPR Website: OPR’s “Members Only” section of our website provides members with access to restricted information such as the price book, price matches and business efficiencies. As the website continues to build as a resource, we welcome input from our members to include additional features.
Listserv: A valuable resource to OPR members is the Administrator Listserve.

It will also allow us to quickly disseminate information, including price matches.
OPR has organized a library of useful links to websites for professional organizations, advocacy groups, cancer treatment and supportive care information, payer and reimbursement sources, patient assistance programs and more.
Pathways Program - Oncology Physician Resource (OPR) has developed a Michigan oncology clinical treatment pathways program sponsored by BCBSM as a professional Collaborative Quality Initiative (CQI) through its Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP). The intent of the Pathways Program is to establish treatment pathways, decrease variability of care delivery and improve quality. The guidelines contained within the pathways will help define optimal quality care and treatment with the least toxicity and also be more cost effective for the patient, provider, and payer.
The primary objective of the Pathways Program is to demonstrate that treatment pathways can be universally incorporated into clinical oncology practices. OPR will serve as the Coordinating Center and work alongside the MI oncology community. The Coordinating Center, with the assistance of its vendor, P4 Healthcare, will provide tools, expertise, educational meetings, and hands-on training for developing, implementing, and ongoing monitoring relating to the Pathways Program. For more information regarding the Pathways Program, contact Jane Tozer at Jtozer@oprservices.com.
Enrollment during the first year of the program consisted of: 190 physicians, 45 practices, and 6 healthcare systems. The second year of the program began in January 2011 with the expansion to: lymphoma, myeloma, ovarian, prostate, and renal cancer. OPR preaced the Pharma Indication Review Committee to allow for industry represntatives to submit information and questions regarding the program, for more information on this, send an email to PIRC@oprservices.com.
OPR has programs to help your practice save $15,000 per physician per year.
