Screenings can save lives

by Jessica Wahaus on March 2, 2017

1 in 3 adults has not been screened for colorectal cancer as recommended. CDC Vital SignsDid you know colorectal cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the U.S.? Although the mortality rate has been declining for several decades, the American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates there will be more than 135,000 new cases and over 50,000 deaths from the disease in the United States this year. This type of cancer is often called a “silent killer” since it is often symptom-free and not diagnosed until late stages.

However, there is some positive news about colorectal cancer — it is largely curable if detected early. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 60 percent of colorectal cancer-related deaths could be avoided with early, regular screenings.

Quest Diagnostics offers an effective screening test that is simple and easy. The InSure®FIT™ test uses a water-based collection method, and studies show it is better at detecting stages I-III compared to the traditional Hemocult stool test1.

Innovative companies, health plans and concerned individuals are taking action and participating in colorectal cancer screenings. If your company is interested in finding out how to help reduce healthcare costs and help save lives through early detection, visit QuestForHealth.com, or call 1.800.654.7824.

Welcoming busy applicants with choice and convenience

by Kem Snavely Frost on January 18, 2017

YesWereOpenLocation, location, location. This is a common catch phrase in real estate, but it’s also becoming more important to life insurance applicants as well. In today’s busy and very mobile society, consumers—including life insurance applicants—want options that best meet their on-the-go lifestyles.

To meet this growing consumer demand, ExamOne gives applicants a choice when deciding on where to have their life insurance paramedical exam completed. They can chose between the most extensive national network of paramedical service centers or a traditional exam at their home or workplace. With more than 150,000 applicants visiting our exam sites last year, the growing popularity of this choice is evident.

In addition to allowing applicants to visit a site convenient for them, we also offer real-time self-scheduling capabilities. When and where to get a life insurance exam is now in the applicant’s control. Your applicants can schedule their paramedical appointment instantly online or via their mobile device. When we use modern communication tools that are preferred by your applicants, we are able to contact them quicker and schedule their exam faster. Flexible scheduling options improve turnaround times from 11.5 days to just 6 days, and lower cancellation rates.

“My husband travels for work and doesn’t always know his schedule in advance, so the option for him to pick a location while he was on the road and to schedule exams was a greatly appreciated benefit. Meanwhile, I scheduled my exam close to home. It was one less hurdle during the process.” – Life insurance applicant

With more than one-third of Americans (34%) saying they are at least somewhat likely to purchase life insurance in the next year,* the industry should encourage follow-through on this important decision to protect their families by making the process easy and convenient. ExamOne is committed to doing our part by continuing to expand our footprint of physical exam location options. In coordination with our parent company, Quest Diagnostics®, we provide an extensive network of 700 locations for your applicants—and we are continually working to add even more.

More locations and scheduling options, in addition to less stringent fasting restrictions before exams, give your applicants more choices than ever before. By developing more applicant-friendly processes, we can all hopefully help our industry grow, grow, grow.
