What role can employers play in cancer prevention and treatment?
Rachel Henke, PhD and coauthors representing Truven Health Analytics (Cambridge, MA and Washington, DC), Emory University (Atlanta, GA), and Johnson & Johnson (Southwest Ranches, FL, Mansfield, MA, and New Brunswick, NJ), focus on how J&J has incorporated the industry-leading standards developed by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer into its existing Live for Life worksite health promotion program.
In the article "Employers' Role in Cancer Prevention and Treatment—Developing Success Metrics for Use by the CEO Roundtable on Cancer," the authors describe the "5 Pillars" of the CEO Cancer Gold Standard program, the framework J&J created to monitor the use and effectiveness of the cancer prevention and treatment enhancement efforts it introduced, and examples of the data collected by the company.
"This nationally prominent group of researchers has once again demonstrated that employers can bend the cost curve and improve outcomes, too," says Editor-in-Chief David B. Nash, MD, MBA, Dean and Dr. Raymond C. and Doris N. Grandon Professor, Jefferson School of Population Health, Philadelphia, PA.
