NASHVILLE, TN – Reimagine Care, the nation’s leading provider of cancer care services in the home, is announcing a new partnership with Houston-based Memorial Hermann Health System to offer 24/7 access to Reimagine Care’s experienced oncology nurses and advanced practitioners via text, phone, and video, as well as in-home supportive care when appropriate.
Reimagine Care’s proactive approach to managing patients from the home has produced a better overall treatment experience, strong clinical outcomes, and increased satisfaction for patients around the country.
This strategic partnership comes as a response to the evolving needs and preferences of patients with cancer, who are increasingly seeking the ability to receive care at home due to its convenience and ease of access. Eighty-two percent of patients with cancer want to receive care at home, and over 90% want on-demand access to an oncology expert, according to Reimagine Care’s 2023 Consumer Research. With Reimagine Care’s team of clinicians and integrated technologies, this partnership will provide a seamless experience that ensures Memorial Hermann’s patients are able to receive around the clock support without having to leave the comforts of home.
