MSK Direct has successfully partnered with employers across the nation to meet the varied needs of their workforce, which range from screening, prevention, and early detection, through supporting access to high-quality cancer care for those diagnosed with cancer and virtual expert medical opinions.
According to a recent survey published by the Business Group on Health, cancer has overtaken musculoskeletal conditions as the top driver of healthcare costs for large employers. The survey notes that 13% of employers said they are seeing more late-stage cancers, which translates to significantly higher medical costs.
Through MSK Direct, employers can focus on lowering healthcare costs and further support their employees by increasing access to cancer screenings, offering value-based oncology care, and creating solutions to better address the rising cost of specialty cancer drugs.
Virtual cancer guidance and support for your employees, no matter where they are.
MSK Direct is excited to announce the expansion of our virtual oncology services to further support your employees across their entire cancer journey. We’re collaborating with a digital oncology platform company, Jasper Health, to combine MSK’s clinical subspecialized expertise and superior long-term patient outcomes with digitally powered, psychosocial support and personalized cancer care guidance.
We are launching the MSK Direct app later this year to empower members to take control of their treatment plan by enabling easier access to expert medical opinions, and providing one-to-one support coaching and care navigation.
The MSK Direct app is packed with digital tools to support members navigating a cancer diagnosis. A few highlights of key features and new capabilities enabled through the app include:
- Coach support and navigation — certified health coaches available 24/7 provide personalized education, guidance, and connection to resources to address things like emotional wellness, nutrition, and finance concerns
- Care planning tools — helps organize schedules, track medications, and symptoms — all in one place
- Customized recommendations — serves up the right information when and where it’s needed, including actionable content personalized to your type of cancer
