What if there was a support network that helped people affected by chronic disease live longer and have a better quality of life?
In the US alone, over 1.6 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year. For 85% of them, the causes are not genetic. Electronic Health Records provide clinical data, however, data on lifestyle, diet, socioeconomic stressors, workplace and environmental exposure is missing.
The Open Cancer Network is not simply a support app. We empower patients to take better care of themselves and to make data-supported decisions about their treatment and their lifestyle and we enable better cancer research and treatment. Users log and analyze their diet, activity and other basic metrics, which helps them make more informed daily choices to support a higher quality of life, and, by relaying the data to their physicians and caregivers, enable close monitoring and support.
What if there was a support network that helped people affected by chronic disease live longer and have a better quality of life? There is. The Open Cancer Network is here.
