Outcomes4Me Inc., the developer of a personalized and evidence-based cancer navigation platform, announced today that the 2022 UCSF Health Hub Digital Health Awards recognized it as a Rising Star winner in the Consumer Prevention category. The company earned the award for its ability to empower patients with personalized care guidance. The recognition is particularly meaningful as it coincides with the company announcing that it has now supported more than 100,000 breast cancer patients as they navigate their illness and care.
According to the 2022 State of Patient Empowerment Report, only 55% of breast cancer patients reported that their care team was accessible and/or that their oncologists really listened to them. Outcomes4Me works to fill that gap: ensuring patients have access to personalized, science-based information about treatment innovation relevant to their unique diagnosis and disease stage so they can proactively manage their care and partner with their providers as members of the care team.
“We are proud to be recognized by the digital health community for our contributions to advancements in patient care with this prestigious award,” said Maya R. Said, Sc.D., Founder and CEO at Outcomes4Me. “We have now reached over 100,000 breast cancer patients who today use our product and rely upon it to take a proactive approach to their care. The patient is at an inherent disadvantage in the current system, and our work is leveling the playing field within healthcare and putting power back where it belongs, which is in the patient’s hands.”
The UCSF Digital Health Award is one of several recent and exciting accolades for Outcomes4Me; others include:
- Tech in Motion recently honored Outcomes4Me with a regional Best Tech for Good Timmy Award; this award is significant as the company earned it through public voting, and it recognizes companies making a positive contribution to society.
- The Women’s Healthy Aging Innovation Summit honored Outcomes4Me as the winner in the oncology category of its “Best in Category” showcase, which took place on November 9, 2022, in San Diego.
