Optimising Oncology Outcomes

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 ($895 billion / year) the human suffering associated with the disease is great.

Our mission is to revolutionize the use of the patient's voice to improve both patient experience and clinical outcomes in cancer

Px has developed a digital health platform that combines Patient-Experience with Advanced Data-Analytics to improve clinical outcomes in oncology
