Partnership Elevates Patients and Survivors Care in a New Innovative Way

 

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (TRIAGE CANCER) NOVEMBER 19, 2015

 

Triage Cancer today announced a new partnership with Medocity, Inc. to provide valuable information and practical tools about cancer survivorship on the Medocity iCancerHealth platform. This new collaboration will help ensure individuals with cancer have information about access to health care, treatment options, psychosocial care, survivorship care planning and other practical challenges that arise after diagnosis.

Triage Cancer works with cancer community partners, health care professionals, and other experts to connect people to relevant, practical information about cancer survivorship issues. Medocity launched iCancerHealth to provide a holistic patient-centric support to cancer patients.

“We share a common mission with Triage Cancer to empower cancer patients, survivors and caregivers in the task of managing care at home,” said Raj Agarwal, Medocity Chief Executive Officer and President. “This partnership further enhances our goals of offering coordinated care, engagement and education to cancer patients, and we look forward to making a positive difference in their lives.”

“When someone is dealing with a cancer diagnosis, there are so many different things they are faced with: decisions to make and information to learn. Trying to juggle it all can be incredibly overwhelming,” said Joanna Morales, Triage Cancer Chief Executive Officer. “Our goal is to provide access to quality information about all types of cancer survivorship issues. From the practical issues of managing finances and insurance to the emotional and spiritual well-being after cancer, having these tools and resources empowers survivors.”

iCancerHealth is an intuitive, comprehensive platform that bridges the gap between the clinic and the patient’s home that:

  • Enhances patient care by providing self-care tools to Manage/ track medications, symptoms and treatment plan and share progress with clinical team;
  • Guides patients and caregivers with timely disease and drug specific information; and
  • Shares and connects with the patient’s care team, family and friends.

By supporting patients and improving communication with their caregivers and health care teams, Medocity hopes to effect the overall quality of support that a patient receives during and after their journey with cancer.

The use of app has been donated by Medocity to Triage Cancer for its constituents and is available for free download at the App Store, Google play and on the Web at http://triagecancer.org/icancehealth.
