To assure long-term healthcare for cancer survivors everywhere, we need expertly managed clinical strategies from doctors who care. Our purpose is to help design & manage your custom survival plan.
Unfortunately the rapid growth of individuals surviving cancer has resulted in sub-optimal care for cancer survivors, who are frequently overlooked by the healthcare system.
Cancer Survivor Care Plans
A cancer survivor plan represents a long-term strategic plan that navigates the complex medical industry. Through active management, your survivor care plan helps assure more effective health care. Similar to other aspects of your life, these plans are regularly updated to meet your individual life circumstances.
Oncologists who receive detailed training are more likely to provide written survivor care plans. Additionally, primary care providers who receive survivor care plans are also more likely to discuss specific health care recommendations. Finally, patients with superior medical education are more likely to experience positive health outcomes.
Consumer Health Informatics
Consumer health informatics analyzes consumers' needs for information; studies and implements methods of making information accessible to consumers; and models and integrates consumers' preferences into medical information systems. These systems are the foundation for enabling highly personalized and responsive cancer care.

Why DO you need a personalized cancer survivor plan?
Long lasting effects of cancer treatment can appear shortly after completion of your cancer treatment or arise years later. Additionally, cancer survivors often require multiple clinicians to manage complex care including: on-going surveillance for disease recurrence; management of long term treatment effects; and management of lifestyle options that decrease additional cancer disease risk. Once a person has completed cancer therapy, he or she should received a survivor care plan. These survivor care plans help streamline access to follow-up care. While survivor care plans can reduce medical errors and improve health outcomes, the amount of time required to develop and manage these plans makes them unachievable for most oncology practices.
Although a majority of oncologists report discussing cancer survivor care recommendations with survivors, very few discuss who survivors should see for follow-up care; and only 5% of cancer survivor receive a written survivor care plan.
Additionally, oncologists, primary care providers, and cancer survivors are often unclear about their respective roles in survivorship care, particularly the management of long-term health effects. The ability for oncologists and primary care providers to deliver evidence-based medicine is fundamental to cancer survivorship. While primary care providers indicate they are better able to perform routine follow-up care, they generally lack confidence in their knowledge about cancer recurrence and long-term treatment effects. Likewise, primary care providers’ willingness to assume responsibility for such follow-up care is low. Differences in patient and physician expectations, lack of clarity surrounding provider roles, and debates about follow-up care pose significant challenges to delivering quality cancer survivor care; often resulting in poor medical outcomes and medical error.
