Sophisticated Solutions for Complex Cancer Care
In the latest episode of the Springbuk podcast, Natalya Gertsik, Ph.D., Vice President, ClearCancer Solution Management, at Private Health Management, and a contributor to the 2023 Springbuk Employee Health Trends report, joins Jennifer Jones and Mike Pattengale to chat through sophisticated solutions for complex cancer care.
A 2023 Business Group on Health survey showed that for the first time in history, cancer overtook musculoskeletal disease as the top cost driver for employers. Dr. Gertsik says this is a major issue for employers and their employees because of three main deficiencies in our healthcare system related to cancer care:
- limited access
- inadequate communication
She describes the respective underlying issues with Centers of Excellence and community-based oncologists, and then explains how PHM is applying an ”independence clinical excellence model” to address these deficiencies and challenges.
