Cancer Awareness
Cancer Awareness Program

HealthComp’s in-house Cancer Awareness program is designed to develop a culture of health at your company, create awareness, and ultimately reduce the participants’ risk of cancer through early detection and intervention. We use participant demographics, claims history, and proprietary data-management tools to assess the specific needs of the health plan population and develop a Cancer Awareness program that fits your company.

Checking for cancer (or for conditions that may lead to cancer) in people who have no symptoms is called screening. Screening can help doctors find and treat some types of cancer early. Generally, cancer treatment is more effective when the disease is found early.

HealthComp’s Cancer Awareness program targets the following cancers and their recommended screening:

  • Cervical Cancer: Cervical Screening
  • Colon Cancer: Colonoscopy
  • Prostate Cancer: Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) Test
  • Breast Cancer: Mammogram

HealthComp’s Cancer Awareness team identifies those participants who have not completed their target activity. Target activities consist of preventative cancer screenings, as appropriate for specific age and gender populations based on national guidelines. When we identify that a participant has not had their target activity, our Cancer Awareness team contacts the participant by phone to encourage their completion of the target activity. HealthComp’s Cancer Awareness team explains the importance and benefits of the target activity. Cancer Awareness information is also mailed to participants.

Cancer Awareness program includes:

  • Information for employees such as payroll inserts, mail campaign, and email communications.
  • Outbound calls to targeted participants.
  • Educational mailers to targeted participants.
  • Comprehensive reporting.
