Why Screen for Distress & Why Use Our Tools?
Screening for psychosocial distress screening can rapidly identify patients’ unmet needs and connect them to needed support.
Healthcare & Utilization Cost
Patients with cancer who were diagnosed with either anxiety or depression alone were at an increased risk for healthcare use, specifically emergency department visits and hospitalization. $100,000 more spent on depressed cancer patients than non-depressed cancer patients.
Health-related Quality of Life
Quality of life is changed by a number of factors for those impacted by cancer. Using assessment tools with automated, connected resources and real-time linking to specify service providers has significant impact on health outcomes.
Patients with cancer have an almost twofold increased risk of dying by suicide compared with the general population.
Patients screened with CSS who utilized our services at Orlando Health within one year following screening had 50% less emergency department visits, and were more likely to access integrative medicine department services, patient and family counseling, and financial counseling.

Frequently Asked Questions
|How much does it cost to license the MyCareReport platform and the Cancer Support Source and Checking IN?||The tools are licensed on an annual subscription basis with a base package of $7,500 annually (not including one-time EMR integration and/or set up/training). We are happy to send a non-obligatory proposal.|
|Do these tools fulfill accreditation standards?||Yes, the measures do fulfill accreditation standards.|
|Are these tools customizable if we want to add surveys or question sets?||To retain the scientific rigor of the tools, questions need to all be asked and answered in their provided order. There is some flexibility with some of the tools to add questions to the end or add an additional survey. We are happy to work on custom surveys for you (i.e. opioid use, COVID questions, population health, healthcare disparities).|
|Do you have funding or grants available to help offset the cost of the license?||We are linked with the Cancer Support Community Research and Training Institute, which looks at multiple domains of cancer and the psychosocial impact of cancer on patients and families. From time to time opportunities do arise for research partnerships and are sometimes tied to some grant funding opportunities. This is the exception though, and rare.|
