Services optimize risk assessment programs to improve workflow, foster greater participation, and find cancers earlier
SEATTLE, WA, SEPTEMBER 20, 2022—Volpara Health (ASX: VHT), a global leader in software for the early detection of breast cancer, today announced the launch of its new comprehensive Professional Services offering to help its Risk Pathways customers maximize the value of their high-risk cancer assessment programs.
Volpara® Risk Pathways™ software has been used by more than 1,000 providers across the United States to identify, manage, and improve outcomes for patients at elevated risk for developing cancer.
Prominent medical associations now recommend risk assessment as a strategy to help detect breast cancer earlier, when it is more treatable.1 Accordingly, more and more healthcare providers are instituting high-risk programs to identify at a younger age those women who will benefit from additional screening and prevention techniques. As setting up a high-risk program can involve many challenges, breast care providers can benefit from the specialized expertise and support required to establish a program and achieve their clinical, financial, and operational goals. From inception to optimization, Volpara Professional Services helps programs achieve long-term success, offering expertise across the spectrum of essential program elements:
- Strategy development
- Program implementation
- Workflow optimization
- Physician and staff alignment
- Patient education
- Marketing support
- Program evaluation
- Return-on-investment frameworks
“Our mission is to help our customers save more families from cancer,” said Teri Thomas, CEO of Volpara Health. “Despite the rise in high-risk programs, most patients are unaware of their risk status. We designed Professional Services to help providers remove roadblocks that may keep them from providing more effective, personalized care. Our Professional Services team features experienced professionals who previously managed their own programs. They bring decades of expertise in supporting leading clinical sites around the world, skillfulness and dedication that can help programs at each step and empower them to keep pace with rapidly changing risk assessment and genetic landscapes.”
