AccessHope and Northwestern Medicine Announce Novel Collaboration to Expand Nationwide Access to Best-in-Class Cancer Expertise

DUARTE, Calif. & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On the heels of AccessHope’s national launch in October, the wholly owned subsidiary of City of Hope today announced it has joined forces with Northwestern Medicine to provide specialized cancer expertise to help more people achieve the best possible cancer outcomes. This novel collaboration brings two National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers together, enabling some of the country’s most sought-after specialists to offer expertise that can improve care, experience, outcomes and value for patients in the treatment of complex cancers.

“The NCI designation represents an elite group of cancer centers recognized for delivering high-quality clinical care, superior outcomes and outstanding patient experiences,” said AccessHope CEO Mark Stadler. “We’re honored to have Northwestern Medicine join City of Hope in the AccessHope program.”

The collaboration, which expands the current City of Hope network to now include experts from Northwestern Medicine, comes at a crucial time considering that COVID-19 has shown to have impacted cancer diagnosis, care and treatment. “COVID-19 has resulted in the number of cancer screenings and resulting diagnoses dropping significantly over the last several months,” noted Stadler. “AccessHope anticipates that as a result, cancer diagnoses may come later, when cancer has progressed or is at a more advanced stage, making it even more vital for individuals to receive an expert review of their case and start on the right course of treatment the first time.” City of Hope recognized the tremendous benefit to cancer patients of reimagining how they can receive the most innovative care available as close to home as possible. Demand from employers across the country led City of Hope to establish AccessHope. Today, AccessHope serves approximately 1.95 million members who have its cancer support services through 34 employers including 11 Fortune 500 companies.

AccessHope’s collaboration with Northwestern Medicine furthers its commitment to optimizing care for people facing cancer, regardless of their location. Through an employer health care benefit, employees of AccessHope clients who are diagnosed with cancer and their local treating oncologist can benefit from the expertise of specialists knowledgeable in the latest cancer discoveries for review of diagnosis, treatment plan and precision medicine opportunities, as well as clinical trial information and support services, without ever needing to leave their community.

“We believe access to the expertise we have at Northwestern Medicine and the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University should not be limited by geography,” said Dean M. Harrison, president and chief executive officer, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare. “Through this collaboration, AccessHope members will benefit from the knowledge and experience of our world-class physicians and the latest in cancer research and treatment options.”

Top Ten Cancer Hospital Increases Remote Support Footprint

Northwestern Medicine is a nationally recognized health system that provides world-class compassionate care. Backed by Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, Northwestern Memorial Hospital is ranked No. 8 in the nation for cancer care by U.S. News and World Report, 2020 – 2021.

Promise to Expand Intermountain Healthcare, Primary Children’s Hospital Pediatric Behavioral Health Services Inspires $10 Million Gift

Gift to the Intermountain Foundation will help Intermountain Healthcare and Primary Children’s expand and enhance behavioral health services to improve mental wellness in children and teens and help prevent mental health crises.

Salt Lake City, Utah, Oct. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Intermountain Healthcare and Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital are launching a bold plan to enhance mental and behavioral health services for children and teens in crisis throughout the Intermountain West – an effort that has inspired an extraordinary $10 million gift from Utah community leaders Greg and Julie Cook.  

The Cooks’ generous and transformational gift to the Intermountain Foundation will help Intermountain Healthcare and the experts at Primary Children’s expand and enhance behavioral health services to improve mental wellness in children and teens and help prevent mental health crises. 

Suicide is a leading cause of death among children ages 10-17 years. Intermountain Healthcare’s hospital emergency departments have seen a more than 300 percent increase in pediatric mental health crises over the past eight years, and an estimated 40 percent of kids who have depression are not getting care, said Katy Welkie, RN, MBA, CEO of Primary Children’s Hospital and Vice President of Intermountain Children’s Health. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has also highlighted the ongoing need for additional mental, behavioral, and emotional health resources,” Welkie said. “It is our responsibility as a community of passionate, motivated, and family-driven individuals to tackle this crisis head on. Thanks to the generous gift given by the Cook family, we will continue to build on our primary promise to offer additional support for children in our community.”

For teenagers like Holland, these services are critical to achieving a hopeful future.

“I think I just stopped caring. I was living like it was my last day, every day. I didn’t feel like I had a future, or anywhere to go,” said Holland, 16, recalling her struggle before getting help from Intermountain Primary Children’s Hospital’s behavioral health services. “I’m really grateful that there’s someone to talk to now.” 

With the help of the Cooks’ gift, Intermountain Healthcare and Primary Children’s Hospital will begin to offer: 

  • A new pediatric assessment, referral, and consultation service to screen, triage, and place children in the right services, both virtually and in person. Services will include both crisis response and stabilization, as well as a full array of treatment options.

  • Expansion of available care options, including a call center, TeleHealth services, and in-home crisis services. The call center will connect families to local providers and services throughout the Intermountain West.

  • A new pediatric behavioral health unit located at the second Primary Children’s Hospital campus being built in Lehi. Offering both inpatient and outpatient services, the new hospital will include a 12-bed behavioral health unit with private outdoor space conducive to healing and spiritual health. 

The new Lehi hospital location was selected to ensure the shortest drive time possible for the rapidly growing Utah County community.

Eisai and Cogstate Expand Agreement for Global Development and Commercialization of Digital Cognitive Assessment Technologies

MELBOURNE, Australia, Oct. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Eisai Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Tokyo, CEO: Haruo Naito, “Eisai”) and Cogstate, Ltd. (Headquarters: Melbourne, Australia and New Haven, USA, CEO: Brad O’Connor, “Cogstate”) announced today that the companies have entered into a collaboration whereby Eisai has secured the global development rights and exclusive commercialization rights of all cognitive function tests developed by Cogstate, including the “Cogstate Brief BatteryTM” (CBB) for use in healthcare and other markets. This global licensing deal is an expansion of an existing partnership executed in August 2019 whereby Eisai secured exclusive development and commercialization rights in Japan for all cognitive function tests developed by Cogstate, including the CBB. Both companies plan to proceed with development globally of CBB as a tool for individuals to self-assess brain performance to support healthy lifestyle choices and preventative measures in daily life, as well as a medical device to aid healthcare professionals in clinical diagnosis decisions.

Developed by Cogstate, the CBB is a scientifically validated digital tool that enables cognitive function self-checks and consists of four tests evaluating psychomotor function, attention, learning and memory, and working memory. In the United States, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, the CBB has been adapted as a medical device named “CognigramTM” that has achieved marketing authorization by regulators in these jurisdictions and provides informative results for healthcare professionals to support clinical examination to aid in the diagnosis of MCI and dementia.

In its medium-term business plan, EWAY2025, Eisai is aiming to become a “Medico Societal Innovator” (a company that changes society through creating medicines and providing solutions). Eisai is creating next-generation medical remedies focused on the neurology and oncology areas as well as building disease ecosystem platforms, in order to provide environments and solutions including digital solutions for early diagnosis and early treatment.

Cogstate aims to make assessment of brain health as simple, common and informative as assessment of blood pressure. Cogstate’s technology, which is easy to use and available in over 70 languages, is supported by extensive scientific validation, including more than 600 peer reviewed publications. Cogstate technology has been used extensively in clinical trials, including trials conducted by Eisai.

The global agreement between Eisai and Cogstate will allow the two companies to replicate many of the advancements that have already been launched in Japan, where Eisai has developed and launched a new digital tool using the CBB, named “NouKNOWTM” (pronounced “NOH-NOH”), a non-medical device for self-assessment of brain performance (brain health). Eisai is currently investigating the possibility of developing a medical device using the CBB in Japan.

In recent years, various research has demonstrated the possibility that decline in brain performance may be mitigated through major readjustments to lifestyle, such as regular exercise and sleep, a well-balanced diet, and social interaction. However, according to a survey by Eisai, the number of people taking correct preventive actions or habitually performing self-checks of cognitive function are few,

PLEASANT GROVE, Utah and NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct. 20, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — doTERRA and its supply chain partners have connected with World Bank to improve access to funding for smallholder farmers in Kenya. The project is part of a broader plan called the Kenya Marine Fisheries and Socio-Economic Development Project (KEMFSED) that will support fisheries value chains, as well as high-value agriculture chains, including essential oil crops, within coastal fishing communities.

“When discussing the success of our farming initiatives in the region with representatives from World Bank, we began to brainstorm ways that we could work together to expand opportunities for even more individuals,” said Taylor MacKay, doTERRA strategic sourcing manager. “World Bank recognized our ability to truly support farmers and local communities through our Co-Impact Sourcing initiatives, and saw doTERRA as an implementation partner that could help them do even more in the region. It has been amazing to see this project take shape from the ground up—from idea generation to recommending other implementing organizations—we’re grateful for the opportunity to participate together in meaningful change.”

The KEMFSED project is slated to run for five years with an overall goal of enhancing livelihoods for individuals involved while safeguarding the integrity of associated ecosystems. If successful, the project has the potential to serve as a model for similar programs around the world.

One of doTERRA’s primary goals in Kenya is the formation of thriving cooperative farming groups within various communities across the region. In addition to providing opportunities for smallholder farmers, doTERRA is committed to supporting development projects improving overall community health and well-being.
