Buying Cancer Care
Cancer is a major cost driver for employers and a key concern in many employee populations.
Do you know how to assess quality and value, and ensure that you and your employees are getting the best outcomes from the cancer care you purchase?
We produce new guidance on cancer nearly every year, and our most recent work focuses on the cancer care “huddle.”
Take a look at our July 2018 guide and videos below.
Improving the Cancer Patient Experience: Putting Employees at the Center of Your Cancer Benefits Strategy
Cancer strikes millions of Americans and touches many lives. When an employee or an employee’s family member is diagnosed with cancer, your benefits department will play a critical support role. This guide will help you develop a more employee-centric approach for supporting employees and their families once a cancer diagnosis has been made.
High Value Cancer Care: Guidance for Employers
NEBGH’s report is based on interviews with cancer experts and employer benefits professionals, and a May 2016 workshop attended by 48 stakeholders – employer benefits professionals, oncology experts, care providers and health plan executives. It notes that healthcare in general in the U.S. is moving from a primarily volume-based, fee-for-service system to one in which value is central, and as a result, the cancer care landscape is also undergoing significant changes ranging from new options for better navigation and coordination of care, and more personalized and precision-based treatments, to new payment models like bundles and total cost of care.
