Nurse-Led, Florida Company Opens Texas Offices as America Celebrates National Nurses Week, May 6-12.
May 9, 2017 (Tampa, Fla.) – RN Cancer Guides Solutions reports an increasing number of employers offering individualized cancer-care benefits for employees, prompting the expansion of the Tampa-based firm to open offices in Dallas.
“We’ve seen steady growth since launching in 2013, but the changing landscape of healthcare and soaring cancer costs have now prompted more employers to take a proactive approach to employee care,” said Susan Scherer, certified oncology nurse and founder of RN Cancer Guides Solutions.
According to the National Institutes of Health, cancer costs will reach $158 Billion by 2020. Through Scherer’s newly trademarked Employee Cancer Assistance Program (ECAP), employers are leveraging value-based care and guided support for employees to achieve the best possible outcomes, which results in reduced claims costs, optimized care, and reduced absenteeism.
The firm contracts with public and private entities, providers, physician associations, caregivers, as well as individual patients to improve cancer care, minimize risks, reduce waste, and control costs.
“We are the first-ever, nurse-led company of Oncology Certified Nurses working 24/7 to review claims, attend patient appointments, and make real-time improvements in care,” said Scherer, whose medical career spans over 25 years, including achievements at world-renowned cancer facilities. Scherer recently co-wrote provisions in Florida Patient’s Bill of Rights & Responsibilities passed last week by Florida legislators.
Also celebrating National Nurses Week this week, the trail-blazing team of nurses at RN Cancer Guides Solutions is positioning for expansion to major cities beyond Tampa and Dallas, ambitiously stretching their reach to help patients, providers, and organizations nationwide fight cancer.
