AccessHope, an employer-focused cancer startup, has announced the inclusion of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Care Center at John Hopkins Medicine to its network of National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated organizational partners. This move aims to enhance access to quality oncology-based care, research, and patient outcomes for employees covered under self-funded health plans.
As a wholly owned subsidiary of the City of Hope cancer treatment and research center, AccessHope already collaborates with NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers such as City of Hope, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Emory Healthcare, Northwestern Medicine, and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. By connecting employers, employees’ treating physicians, and cancer-focused experts from these institutions, the company facilitates knowledge sharing and improves the overall quality of life, health outcomes, and medical expense reduction for cancer patients.
According to AccessHope CEO Mark Stadler, this collaboration with John Hopkins Medicine will not only benefit employers and individuals battling cancer but also work towards reducing health disparities in underserved populations.
One prominent user of AccessHope’s services is Amazon, the tech and retail giant, which offers the program as one of four health benefits accessible to its employees from day one.
AccessHope also recently partnered with Carrum Health, a California-based digital marketplace enabling employers to purchase bundled healthcare services. This partnership provides self-insured employers and their staff access to AccessHope’s network of cancer specialists through Carrum Health’s oncology offering.
Jasper Health is another notable platform in the digital health oncology sector. It provides a hybrid digital and human-led cancer care platform, offering services such as care navigation and guidance, data insights, remote patient monitoring capabilities, cancer care coaches, and a patient support community.
