Benefits of Employee Screening
One person dies of melanoma every half hour in the US. If you have 100 employees, chances are that one of them has melanoma and does not even know it. When detected and treated early the cure rate is about 98%; however, once a melanoma lesion grows to thicker than 0.5mm chances of survival decline rapidly.
DermDetect is changing the way skin cancer is diagnosed in the US through its Advanced Skin Cancer Screening (ASCS). The screenings take just 15-20 minutes and can be done at your location or at one of our offices nationwide.
When an employee gets melanoma there are many costs to consider:
- * Loss of productivity
- * Due to appointments and treatments
- * Due to depression
- * Increased costs of healthcare (as much as $1M dollars over the course of the disease)
- * In the worst case, hiring and training a replacement
For the cost of just $21 per month/employee first year and then only $9 per month, you can have peace of mind knowing that when an employee does get melanoma, it will be caught early which is better for them and better for you. The cost is a fraction of the cost of just one employee having melanoma. Also, the goodwill that your employees will feel toward their employer knowing that they are being cared for.
ASCS uses several technologies to image and document the health of your skin. It starts with Full Body Imaging (FBI) where several images are acquired in standardized poses to document every spot or mole on your body and maps them to an avatar. In follow-up screenings, will aid in identifying new spots. Only 30% of the time melanoma comes from an existing mole, the other 70% just appear.
Next, our trained Dermographer will closely examine the skin to look for any spots that do not match your normal mole pattern. Then, close-up clinical pictures are acquired followed by dermoscopic images that allow us to see "into" the mole. The images are uploaded to Academic Dermatologists using our secure cloud server and a report is generated. The images and reports are easily accessible using our free app. This information can also be easily shared with your physician and used for comparison while monitoring for changes.
Intelligent Dermatology is NEW to the US and widely embraced around the world with over one million screened!
The US Healthcare requires a fee for service that is billed using a CPT code. Until there is a code, doctors must charge cash and only the most wealthy patients get the latest technology. Most private practice dermatologists will charge $500-$1000 per year for their staff to perform the same procedure that DermDetect charges only $249. Academic Dermatologists train others to perform new procedures. Do you now have a choice: the teacher or the student? $500 or $249? Corporate clients pay on average $129 per year over a five-year term.
Since it is the employer that benefits from the savings in healthcare costs, we ask that they provide the benefit and pay for the ASCS with money that is saved by providing the very best care.
