Cancer Expert Now's Online Cancer Information Service Now Available as a Corporate Healthcare Benefit

Issued by: Cancer Expert Now

Date: June 7, 2016

Companies Can Offer Employees Direct Access to Top Oncology Experts,  Providing Information on Treatment Options, Approaches

MORRISTOWN, N.J., June 6, 2016 – Cancer Expert Now, an online service that quickly and securely provides cancer patients and their doctors access to elite specialized cancer experts, today announced a suite of services that corporations can offer their employees as a healthcare benefit. The Cancer Expert Now (www.cancerexpertnow.com) service informs and empowers those with cancer to more rapidly make decisions and initiate optimal treatment earlier, regardless of location.

Corporate benefits and human resource professionals can offer employees and immediate family access to various levels of the Cancer Expert Now service, ranging from oncologists available to respond to questions via secure messaging to sessions via video. Cancer Expert Now also offers corporations a “Seminar Series” package that includes seminars and webinars designed to educate a company’s workforce on various cancer-related issues. Programs can be customized based on the size and scope of the organization and can be priced on a per employee or per usage basis.   

By offering rapid access to top cancer experts, employers can help their employees find the right treatment plan as quickly as possible. The service also minimizes costs and time by eliminating the need for employees to travel to appointments in many cases

Two recent reports point to the relevance of this kind of benefit.

  • The incidence of cancer is increasing, according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). In its “State of Cancer Care in America: 2015” report, the ASCO states that an estimated 1.6 million new cancers were diagnosed in 2014, with growing numbers expected in future years.
  • According to a study released in April 2016 by the Northeast Business Group on Health, a major concern of employers is their worry and uncertainty about the quality of cancer care that employees and dependents receive. Furthermore, employers expressed substantial interest in better understanding how to improve the quality and reduce the cost of treatments once a diagnosis is made.
Through Cancer Expert Now, those with cancer have access to hundreds of renowned cancer experts and can receive personalized information on their type of cancer. Just as important, they can gain valuable insight on the latest approaches and treatment options from these elite experts who have handled a range of difficult cases, and who are knowledgeable in clinical trials and medical advances. The Cancer Expert Now service provides those with cancer and their caregivers the knowledge to ask the right questions to their local cancer care team, and make the best decisions for themselves and their families while, eliminating geographic boundaries, and streamlining layers of inaccessibility. At the heart of the Cancer Expert Now service is a live session with a an elite specialized cancer expert, via a proprietary, HIPAA-compliant and secure platform.

“Cancer is a life-threatening, life-altering disease that affects every aspects of a person’s life, from their family to their career,” said Jeff Meehan, CEO and Co-Founder of Cancer Expert Now. “Employers are realizing that cancer care is complicated and it’s typically a long-term issue for the diagnosed employee or the employee wh ose immediate family has been diagnosed. Ensuring the best care is not only the right thing to do, but it’s also good business to take care of valued employees.”

In the best of circumstances, it is often overwhelming and immensely challenging to figure out the best path to pursue, how to find the right doctor, and where to find the most reliable information and guidance ― all in a timely manner.  The Cancer Expert Now service – because it provides access to renowned cancer experts – provides patients with the peace of mind that they are being informed and empowered by doctors who are among the most knowledgeable in their fields.

“Based on the discussions we’ve had with the experts in our network, one of the first questions asked involves how a potential treatment will affect the persons ability to work,” Meehan said. “Whether it is because they enjoy their jobs, want to maintain some level of normalcy or have a sense of financial obligation, most people want to get back to work as quickly as possible.”

The experts in the Cancer Expert Now network have passed a rigorous evaluation process conducted by the firm’s medical advisors. Criteria include physicians’ accomplishments and leadership within their very focused field, including their involvement in the development of national and international treatment guidelines; their participation in numerous research trials; publication of numerous articles in their field; and leadership positions they’ve held in major medical societies, among others standards.
