Precision Oncology Solution

Helping employees when time
is of the essence

Finally, a lifeline for cancer patients and their employers

Cancer is chaos – biologically at cellular level, systemically at treatment level, and professionally for both patients and employers.

When confronted with a cancer diagnosis, employees not only confront intense emotions, but also the practical complexity of getting an accurate diagnosis, finding the right specialists, obtaining additional expert opinions, researching the latest treatment options, and then making treatment decisions.

You’re already spending more on cancer than on any other condition. And with the overwhelming proliferation in new diagnostic tests, treatments, and specialty pharmaceuticals, that cost is rising. PHM’s Precision Oncology Solution has been designed specifically to protect businesses against the real potential for disruption or loss of key talent while fulfilling your priority as an employer to help employees access the best care and outcomes.

Better cancer care is possible

The future of cancer care is here, but it’s neither widely adopted nor equitably distributed.

Recent advances in biomedical research are revolutionizing cancer care, making prevention, earlier detection, and more precise and effective treatment possible. However, inefficiency and fragmentation in our healthcare system means that patients often have limited access to the latest potentially life-saving innovations.

PHM stays up-to-date with the latest treatments and knows how to access them on your behalf.

Advances in biomedical research are revolutionizing cancer care

  • The NCI alone spends more than $6B annually on cancer research
  • 34% of biopharmaceutical assets in development are related to cancer
  • 28% of active clinical trials are focused on cancer
  • Complex molecular-level precision diagnostics and treatments enable more effective and less toxic treatment options

Constraints in the Healthcare System

  • Difficult for oncologists to stay current with latest research
  • Insurance limits on reimbursement, networks, and treatments
  • Incentives for hospitals to refer within their own networks
  • Physician constraints on time
  • Difficulty finding and getting enrolled in clinical trials

We’re experts in optimizing cancer care

Identifying and gaining access to the BEST CARE is more challenging and more important than ever

Our proprietary approach to cancer care is built on insights we’ve gained over 14 years of managing the toughest cancer cases with patients and their physicians:

  • It doesn’t have to cost more to get the best care and outcomes
  • The difference between cancer care using the latest biomedical advances and the routine care most patients receive is particularly pronounced in cancer. The best treatments significantly increase the chance of extending and saving lives.
  • Patients want expert opinions to understand their full range of treatment options
  • Patients value independent and objective guidance to support informed choices
  • Patients and their families need clinical, intellectual, emotional, and logistical support

Cancer is extraordinarily complex and hard to impact. Unlike other conditions, it’s not one disease, it’s hundreds.
