House Rx to Develop Software to Track and Compare Physician Delivery Quality Metrics for the National Cancer Treatment Alliance

House Rx, which has developed a proprietary technology platform for specialty clinics to integrate specialty drug delivery into their operations, will develop software for NCTA to extract data from the Clinically Integrated Network’s data warehouse NCTA and calculate performance against established quality measures for participating specialty clinics. House Rx will also create user-friendly analytics dashboards that clinics can use to comply with NCTA’s CIN quality guidelines and to track and compare their delivery quality metrics to those of other participating clinics. At the start of the partnership, House Rx will develop software for 10 clinical measures established by the NCTA’s Data Use Committee.

“Quality metrics are the backbone of value-based contractual agreements important to employers and commercial payers,” said Robert Baird, RN, MSA, Chairman of the NCTA. “We are proud to partner with House Rx to deploy its software and give our physician partners deep insight into their quality initiatives, while using these metrics to demonstrate the value of medically integrated delivery as well as the value of independent community oncology for buyers.”

The NCTA is led by the Community Oncology Alliance (COA), the only national nonprofit organization dedicated solely to advocating for independent community oncology practices and, more importantly, the patients they serve. A subsidiary of COA, NCTA has created a clinically integrated network of oncology practices to contract directly with employers and insurers for cancer drugs and services. The goal is to enable self-funded healthcare purchasers and their lives covered to have access to high quality, affordable and locally accessible cancer care.

House Rx, which was founded in 2021 by former Flatiron Health executives Ogi Kavazovic and Tesh Khullarrecently announced that it has secured $25 million in a Series A funding and also signed a partnership agreement with Northwest Medical Specialists, a leading oncology practice with 14 medical oncologists and 14 advanced practice providers caring for patients at seven sites across washington state.

“Our expertise – both in software development and in helping oncology practices to be easily implemented – will help NCTA’s CIN members demonstrate tremendous value to employers and payers, who increasingly seek in addition to high quality oncology practices to manage their cancer care programs,” said Tesh Khullar, co-founder and president of House Rx. “We are excited to use our expertise to showcase the clinical value of medically integrated dispensing for patients.”
