Outcomes4Me and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Collaborate to Bring Personalized Clinical Guidelines to Breast Cancer Patients Globally

CAMBRIDGE, MA [October 28, 2019] — Outcomes4Me Inc. and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®) announced today a new collaboration to integrate the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) for Breast Cancer into the Outcomes4Me mobile application. The collaboration leverages Outcomes4Me’s personalized platform to enable millions of breast cancer patients worldwide to have access to up-to-date, evidence-based information on treatment options in a patient-friendly design and language.

NCCN is a not-for-profit alliance of 28 leading cancer centers devoted to patient care, research, and education. NCCN is dedicated to improving and facilitating quality, effective, efficient, and accessible cancer care so patients can live better lives. Through the leadership and expertise of clinical professionals at NCCN Member Institutions, NCCN develops resources that present valuable information to the numerous stakeholders in the health care delivery system.

As part of this collaboration, the Outcomes4Me app will provide patients diagnosed with breast cancer with personalized treatment options based on NCCN Guidelines® tailored for their specific diagnosis. The Outcomes4Me mobile app, available globally both on the App Store and Google Play, was launched in March of this year for breast cancer with a plan to expand to other cancers in the near future. The app serves as a digital health partner that proactively delivers timely information of value to empower patients to take more control of their care. The app provides patients with tools to understand their treatment options, match with clinical trials based on their geographic location, and track and manage their symptoms.      

“We are excited to collaborate with Outcomes4Me as this app is aligned with our mission to improve the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, and accessibility of cancer care so that patients can live better lives” said Robert W. Carlson, MD, Chief Executive Officer, NCCN. “This truly has the potential to provide a unique, personalized, expert-validated experience for patients, helping them share in informed decision making about their medical care”.

“We are on a mission to empower patients with easy-to-understand, relevant, and evidence-based information. This collaboration with the NCCN will further this mission by providing patients with clarity about their best treatment options, enabling them to make better treatment choices in conjunction with their health care provider” said Outcomes4Me’s Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Maya R. Said, ScD.  “Incorporating the NCCN Guidelines in our application will make those guidelines, traditionally geared to oncologists, widely accessible to cancer patients across the world regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or geographic location” added Outcomes4Me’s Co-Founder and Chief Medical Advisor Osama E. Rahma, MD.
