FIGHT COLORECTAL CANCER JOINS FORCES WITH MEDOCITY TO BRIDGE CANCER CARE GAP BETWEEN CLINIC AND PATIENT’S HOME Innovative partnership brings a new level of care to colorectal cancer patients and caregivers medocity-fightcolorectalcancerAlexandria, VA – (June 17, 2015) – Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) has partnered with Medocity, Inc, a leading virtual patient care solutions company, to support patients and survivors in a new innovative way. Starting in July 2015, Fight Colorectal Cancer will provide patients free access to an online platform designed to help manage cancer care outside of the clinic. As part of the partnership, Fight CRC will provide patient friendly blogs, free downloads, videos and more to the Medocity iCancerHealth platform. The collaboration will accelerate access and management of educational resources for colorectal cancer patients across the country. Access to the platform will be available under the resources section of the website. Colorectal cancer impacts 1 in 20 individuals and is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths among men and women in the U.S. As part of the organization’s mission, Fight CRC provides patients with reliable, credible and trustworthy resources to aid in the fight against colorectal cancer. Covering topics relevant to fighting disease, the organization uses blogs, webinars, podcasts, newsletters, one-pagers and more to reach patients. The launch of the new online platform will add a suite of resources and portable tools for patients and caregivers undergoing active treatment. iCancerHealth is an intuitive, comprehensive platform that bridges the gap between the clinic and the patient’s home 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.
With iCancerHealth, patients can share detailed records of their daily health, side effects and symptoms with their physicians and care team in order to help them make more informed clinical decisions. With the addition of content from Fight CRC, iCancerHealth will now provide reliable and practical content for colorectal cancer patients and their caregivers.
“We’re committed to making medical information accessible and easy for families facing a colorectal cancer diagnosis,” said Anjee Davis, president of Fight CRC. “This collaboration allows us to provide families a way to have access to their medical information with a simple touch – via a mobile phone, tablet or computer. This is a major step forward. This new tool will help support and guide patients through this disease, from the first day of diagnosis through survivorship.”
“Medocity is excited to partner with Fight CRC as it aligns with our mission to empower cancer patients, survivors and their families in managing their care at home,” said Raj Agarwal, CEO and President of Medocity.“This partnership further enhances our goals of coordinated care, engagement and education of cancer patients, and helping avoid unnecessary trips to the emergency room.”
