Robust portfolio of services offers improved outcomes and reduced costs for patients and employers
BALTIMORE - Accarent Health, the first ecommerce health care marketplace with transparent bundled pricing for over 150 complex procedures, is offering more specialized treatments for complex cancers than anyone else in the industry. In collaboration with some of the most highly rated adult and pediatric medical institutions in the country, Accarent is offering a variety of procedures to treat leukemia, lymphomas, multiple myeloma, thyroid and parathyroid disorders, bladder, pancreatic, prostate, testicular, and rectal cancers, as well as a groundbreaking Cancer Diagnosis Confirmation and Recommended Treatment Plan bundle.
The Cancer Diagnosis Confirmation and Recommended Treatment Plan bundle is designed to confirm a cancer diagnosis and provide a recommended treatment plan for adult and pediatric patients who have a preliminary diagnosis of cancer from a licensed physician. The patient collaborates with a multi-disciplinary team to address their unique oncologic needs and provide a custom treatment plan. They may then take this plan home to their local oncologist or choose to remain with Accarent’s center of excellence for treatment, giving more patients access to our top rated cancer center’s expertise.
The bundled rate includes an introduction to the Accarent Center’s nurse or nurse practitioner, medical record collection and review by a physician, including review of previous diagnosis records, an in-person consultation with a medical oncologist or hematologist specializing in the patient’s diagnosis, pathology review, additional consultation with a surgical oncologist and radiation oncologist, tumor board review, genetic risk screening, clinical trials screening, goals and advanced care planning, and collaboration with an oncologist outside of the Accarent network if the patient chooses.
Accarent’s industry leading complex cancer program limits risk for the employer, through transparent bundled costs and use of high quality providers, and ensures the employee is receiving the best care, often with no copays or out of pocket. Dedicated nurse case managers and concierges make up the Accarent Care Team, to help the patient navigate this difficult time in their life by answering any questions, coordinating care with providers, facilitating medical records transfer, and assisting with lodging and transportation.
