We are really thrilled to be recognized for our innovations in patient monitoring since giving patients a direct connection to their care team is what we work towards every day.
Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 31, 2017
Navigating Cancer has been named one of the top 10 patient monitoring solutions of 2017 by Healthcare Tech Outlook. The honorees are selected through nomination of the publication’s readers and research by its selection panel, which is comprised of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and Healthcare Tech Outlook’s editorial board.
Navigating Cancer was selected based on four factors: core competency, product offerings, innovations and market reach. The company’s oncology-specific software platform is now used by hundreds of providers and thousands of patients across the country and anticipates continued growth in the market. As pressures like new payment models and complex reporting requirements continue to increase for providers, and with patients undergoing increasingly complex treatment regimens, a technology solution has never been more important.
“At Navigating Cancer, we are passionate about creating a better experience for cancer patients and we believe that remote monitoring and proactive intervention are absolutely essential to deliver high quality care to cancer patients,” said CEO Gena Cook. “We are really thrilled to be recognized for our innovations in patient monitoring since giving patients a direct connection to their care team and putting them at the center is what we work towards every day.”
The company’s patient relationship management solution allows the care team to have a comprehensive view of the care the patient is receiving, whether it’s a physician, nurse, social worker or other member. It also prompts the patient to report medication adherence and side effects so that nothing is missed or overlooked and adherence issues and symptoms can be managed right away, resulting in fewer hospitalizations and better patient outcomes.
