We help community oncology practices thrive

As the largest oncology-specific GPO and physician service organization, the AmerisourceBergen Specialty GPOs' ION Oncology Practice Network is the preferred strategic partner for community oncology practices nationwide.

With over 20 years of experience, you can rely on us for more than GPO contracts. In addition to giving you access to the most advanced therapies at competitive contract rates, our experts take pride in helping member practices tap the potential within their business. Whether you're interested in uncovering new clinical and operational efficiencies, opening new lines of revenue, or need support navigating the transition to value-based reimbursement—we'll be there to help you, every step of the way.

We help you focus on what matters most—
patient care

Optimize access and purchasing power

The cost of a drug should never prohibit you from providing your patients with the care they need. That's why you depend on having reliable access to the most advanced collection of therapies entering the market. With the aggregated purchasing power of a tightly-aligned GPO and distributor, we can even help you bring dispensing capabilities to your practice—ensuring your patients can get everything they need in one place.

Navigate industry changes

The healthcare industry evolves constantly. To stay ahead of the curve, you need dedicated resources to help you navigate the transition from fee-for-service to fee-for-value reimbursement. Our team of experienced professionals will help you demonstrate the real, measurable value of community oncology, and meet merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS) reporting requirements—taking the burden of reporting off your staff and giving you peace of mind.

Advance the quality of patient care

Clinical trials and research are critical to advancing patient care and can provide additional revenue for your practice. But many community oncology practices struggle to match the right patients with the right research opportunities. When you join our extensive research network, you will engage with other community-based oncology practices to broaden your research expertise and increase patient access to clinical trials.

Elevate business performance

We design services and solutions that help oncology practices elevate financial and operational performance. Whether it's optimizing workflows or uncovering gaps in your billing processes, our business intelligence tools can help you reclaim lost revenue and avoid future discrepancies. You can also work with our team of consultants to create a customized plan that addresses the specific needs of your practice.

Your Smart GPO

What does it mean to be a Smart GPO? For us, it means using data and actionable insights to support your practice in the transition to value-based care. It means providing analytics tools to help you align with national guidelines. And it means using empirical evidence to put patient outcomes at the heart of your practice's health and sustainability.

When you join our Smart GPO, you become part of a network of community oncology practices making data-backed decisions to advance the quality of patient care. That's having a smart partner in your corner.


Powering better business performance

What you don't know can hurt your business. With InfoDive, our business intelligence tool, you can go beneath the surface of your data to reveal profound insights and opportunities. By combing through your EHR, PM and inventory management data, InfoDive identifies operational efficiencies in administrative workflows and assesses gaps in financial reconciliation—helping ensure you're never leaving revenue behind.

If you're ready to streamline operations, recover lost revenue and reduce your audit risk, you're ready for InfoDive.
