Value-based cancer care platform Thyme Care is launching Enhanced Supportive Care, a virtual palliative care support program to assist its members and caregivers with managing physical and psychological symptoms accompanying cancer diagnosis and treatment.   

The program will be led by Dr. Julia Frydman, the company's first medical director for palliative care. Frydman previously worked in the geriatric and palliative medicine program at New York City's Mount Sinai Health System.

"There's a group of patients who are members at Thyme Care, who have either curative disease but are having a lot of symptoms or a lot of repercussions of that disease due to the treatment, or who have advancing progressive disease and need assistance with the symptoms of that advancing disease and with medical decision-making as they approach end of life. Palliative care takes care of both of those groups of patients," Frydman told MobiHealthNews.
