Medocity to Demonstrate New Innovative Cancer Patient Care Platform in Orlando

by | Apr 21, 2015 | News

MORRISTOWN, NJ — Medocity, Inc. will demonstrate iCancerHealth, a unique mobile and web platform that bridges the care gap between the clinic and the patient’s home at the 40th Annual Meeting of the Oncology Nursing Society, April 23-26, 2015 in Orlando, FL.

iCancerHealth is a patient-centric application that puts innovative care tools at the fingertips of cancer patients and their caregivers — all in one place to support key aspects of their care at home and access to timely disease and drug specific resources.

“More than one-and-a-half million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year,” said Raj Agarwal, President and CEO of Medocity. “Patients and caregivers are looking for empowerment to effectively manage their care while leading the best quality of life possible under cancer treatment.”

“I was introduced to iCancerHealth when my oncologist invited me to review the app before the initial launch,” said Stacy Hobbs, Metastatic Breast cancer patient. “I really love the pill box. The reminders are great especially with chemo brain. I also enjoy connecting with other survivors in the iCancerHealth community,” she added.

“As an oncologist, I realize that I can’t possibly know everything that is happening with my patients day to day after they leave my clinic. Having the patient and caregiver share progress between visits via iCancerHealth is invaluable to optimize their ongoing cancer care,“ said Dr. Mohit Narang, MD, Maryland Oncology Hematology Group Practice.

About iCancerHealth
The iCancerHealth platform merges healthcare, technology and patient outcomes to assist patients during their cancer treatment. It models real life scenarios based on patients’ care challenges at home and input from oncologists, nurses, patients and caregivers. With iCancerHealth, patients can share records of their daily health, side effects and symptoms with their physicians and nurses in a more comprehensive manner and helping them make more informed clinical decisions.

iCancerHealth is a free app available to patients and caregiver on Apple’s iTunes App Store and Google Play. It is an intuitive, comprehensive platform that:

  • Manages and tracks medications, symptoms and treatment plan,
  • Guides the patient and caregiver with timely disease and drug specific information, and
  • Shares and connects with the patient’s care team, family and friends

For Healthcare Providers, Medocity further extends the iCancerHealth platform with real-time connectivity between patients, cancer centers and healthcare teams, allowing the health care team to monitor patient health between visits and provide personalized guidance and proactive interventions based on symptoms or side effects.

“Living with cancer is challenging and our approach while designing iCancerHealth was to put the patient at the core of care,” added Agarwal. “We believe that the iCancerHealth platform will positively impact the daily lives of patient and caregivers while reducing avoidable costs associated with sub-optimal care at home. We are also extremely pleased with the overwhelming response we have received from major cancer centers, academic institutions and patient advocacy groups.”
