Emdeon Partners with Susan G. Komen for the Cure®

Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness and Education Emdeon Partners with Susan G. Komen for the Cure® for Unprecedented Education & Awareness Campaign

Thanks to Emdeon real-time technology and the real-life information of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®, healthcare providers across the country will be able to print out practical, useful information for patients during appointments, potentially empowering thousands of people with deeper knowledge about how to detect and respond to risk factors, face challenges and get help.

Emdeon and Susan G. Komen for the Cure are partnering to revolutionize in-office, teachable moments by making breast health literature readily available to patients through their healthcare providers. The printable materials include topics such as “Breast Cancer Risk Factors”, “When You Discover A Lump”, and “Sexuality and Intimacy” in both English and Spanish formats. There is no limit on the number of times the providers may print the disease prevention and wellness materials.

These materials are currently available through the web-based software solution, Emdeon Office™, a solution that enables healthcare providers to conduct everyday administrative transactions, including patient eligibility/benefits verification, claim submission, referrals, authorizations and pre-certifications for care. It is currently in use in professional offices representing nearly 100,000 healthcare professionals across the country.

In addition to exposing thousands of healthcare providers to readily accessible, print-quality downloads, Emdeon is engaging in another campaign to turn America’s mailboxes “pink” this October. During the month, Emdeon’s print and mail facilities will print outgoing consumer healthcare statement envelopes with a hot pink awareness message that reads, “Are you Inspired to Save a Life? Find out how at www.komen.org/inspire.” Since Emdeon sends millions of consumer statements each month, millions of people will be thinking pink this October.
