The cancer journey can be confusing and financially devastating. Cancer Guardian provides white-glove support through our proprietary platforms:
- Medical Records Platform : a secure, cloud-based solution that allows you and your family members to store and transmit medical records for any condition, at any time.
- Clinical Trial Explorer: up-to-the-minute database used by Cancer Support Specialists to provide diagnosed members with eligible clinical trials and recommendations.
- Financial Navigation: platform that projects the out-of-pocket financial exposure for a diagnosed member, then identifies and applies for qualifying public and private financial aid programs.
- Cancer Guardian takes data and information privacy very seriously and meets or exceeds all required regulations, including HIPAA and SOC 2. No identifiable Protected Health Information (PHI) is provided to anyone without the written and expressed consent of the member.
In the USA, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act of 2008 (GINA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) are federal regulations that safe-guard genetic results and prevent discrimination using genetic information for health insurance and employment status.
The healthcare system is fragmented, and consolidated medical data can be difficult to access. Cancer Guardian’s Medical Records Platform provides members with a secure, HIPAA compliant cloud-based solution for consolidating, storing and transmitting their medical information. It allows you to organize, view and share medical records, notes and images in an easy and manageable format. A cancer diagnosis is NOT required in order to use this service.
Participating in a clinical trial may help you access to a new treatment that is not otherwise available, which might be safer or work more effectively than current treatment options. You may get more attention from your cancer care team and more careful monitoring of your condition and the possible side effects of treatment if you take part. Additionally, some study sponsors may pay for part or all of your medical care during the study.
Accessing clinical trials is notoriously difficult – only 8% of adult cancer patients participate in a clinical trial. Cancer Guardian, however, leverages a proprietary platform that tracks up-to-the-minute cancer therapy studies. Following diagnosis, your dedicated Cancer Care Specialist will work with you to collect the necessary information (ie., medical data, cancer type, DNA testing results) to assemble a Clinical Trial Report which lists active clinical studies that best fit your specific situation. After reviewing the options with your CSS, they will help you to enroll in the selected trial so that treatment may begin as soon as possible.
Cancer Guardian’s Financial Navigation Platform taps into a rich ecosystem of over $4 billion in public and private funds that have set aside for cancer patients. Assistance programs could include financial aid for childcare, to covering medication expenses.
Our unique program helps you to optimize your insurance benefits, project out-of-pocket expenses, source and enroll in multiple financial assistance programs, and stay connected as new financial aid is identified
