Seeking The Cure for Escalating Cancer Costs


Increases in the cost of traditional fee-for-service medical care have become unsustainable. Medicare, Medicaid and commercial carriers have seen the cost of cancer care rising 15 to 20 percent a year, while the economy is growing at less than 3 percent. Individuals are seeing co-pays and deductibles steadily increase.
Value-based care is changing the paradigm from "sick care" to "health care." David Chesnick's story, Seeking the Cure for Escalating Cancer Costs, is from the latest edition of Cancer 360-Plus magazine.

Why Storytelling?

There is no better way to bring to life your brand and the values behind it than storytelling. We’ve proven that the way for hospitals and healthcare systems, nonprofits, foundations and academic health centers to make more meaningful connections with their communities is to develop high quality, original content. We touch people. We move them. We help them make new discoveries. Doing that requires real storytelling.

At CCM, our turnkey service encompasses strategic planning, editorial, design, photography, printing and digital or mailed distribution to be sure you’ll make those connections without making yourself crazy.

"'Be Brave. Tell Stories. Build Communities' really brought to light how sharing stories is capturing and engaging audiences to reinforce brand loyalty. Content Marketing is the new call to action!”
