Px Healthcare

Improving health outcomes
by putting patients first

Mission


Cancer is one of the world's leading causes of death affecting one in three of all people in Western countries. A recent WHO report highlights a 70% increase in the incidence of cancer worldwide from 14 million to 25 million people diagnosed with the disease each year over the next two decades.

In addition to the high cost of cancer (US: $217bn and EU: €171bn in 2009) the human suffering associated with the disease is great.

Our mission is to advance the treatment of cancer through insights from real-time patient health data

We have developed a digital health platform that combines
Patient-Engagement with Data-Analysis
