What is MyCancerJourney?
MyCancerJourney is the first and only solution to seamlessly blend high-tech real-world data and artificial intelligence with high-touch patient support resulting in personalized shared decision-making for cancer care.
The MyCancerJourney navigator provides patients with personalized treatment and outcomes information of “people like me” derived from precisely collected data on over 2 million cases from 500 hospitals and cancer treatment centers. Real-world evidence from all patients diagnosed with cancer regardless of race, age, sex, and overall health – not just the 4% of the patients selected to participate in clinical trials.
We treat patients with cancer and their families as individuals and provide exceptional support from diagnosis to treatment and beyond delivered by humans, not bots.
Our navigators discuss the treatment options with the patients to clarify their priorities and preferences and create a personalized report to help communicate this information with their healthcare providers and family.
Our work does not end when treatment choices are made. MyCancerJourney navigators are available to guide patients through the often confusing healthcare system and provide continuing support through the screening, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up phases of care.
Clarity in the Midst of Complexity
Patients receive personalized information to support collaboration with providers and loved ones to obtain the treatment that best meets their clinical needs and personal priorities. MyCancerJourney provides an informational framework to clarify treatment options, compare their benefits and tradeoffs, and determine how well the treatment options work in everyday practice settings focusing on the outcomes that matter to people.
MyCancerJourney empowers cancer patients with usable information relevant to their specific clinical condition to support decisions that enhance their quality and length of survival. By providing patients with personalized information based on the real-world outcomes of other patients with the same diagnosis, clinical factors, demographic, and comorbidities, patients can make truly informed decisions about their treatments, matching them to their personal goals and values.
Facilitates Shared Decision Making
Some medical decisions are uncomplicated because there is one best-case treatment. Cancer treatment, however, frequently has multiple treatment options. Board Certified Patient Advocates provide access to MyCancerJourney information, assist patients in understanding their diagnosis and prepare them for shared decision-making conversations. This collaborative approach leads to greater patient satisfaction and compliance.
Patients who use MyCancerJourney are more informed about their diagnosis and options than the average patient. This leads to increased patient involvement in decision-making and more satisfaction with treatment decisions. Patients can more accurately perceive risks and make decisions that better align with their goals and preferences. We regularly see lower treatment rates with similar outcomes, saving patients money and unnecessary pain and suffering.
