ROCKVILLE, Md., Aug. 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — MediMergent, LLC, a leading Real-World Evidence (RWE) company dedicated to promoting the Voice of the Patient (VOP) as a pivotal source of Real-World Data (RWD), proudly announces membership in the CancerX program.

CancerX is a transformative private-public partnership, initiated by the White House as a part of the renewed Cancer Moonshot program. It is a joint initiative by Moffitt Cancer Center, Digital Medicine Society (DiMe), Office for the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health. This strategic collaboration is poised to accelerate innovation and breakthroughs in the fight against cancer by bringing together diverse stakeholders to foster greater opportunities and reduce financial burdens associated with cancer care and research. 

MediMergent successfully leverages its advanced proprietary technologies in clinical trials, and other patient engagement settings, to capture the VOP and demonstrate its impact on health outcomes. Using its suite of serial, interactive, digital surveys and ML/AI-driven algorithms for advanced analytics, MediMergent supports pharma sponsors, health insurers and data aggregators in their quest to interrogate big data related to personalized care of cancer patients.

Dr. Sandra Garrett, CEO of MediMergent, stated, “We believe that VOP digital innovations are critical in reshaping the cancer landscape by adding new insights to clinical outcomes and reducing disparities in cancer care delivery among patients. Our relationship with CancerX offers us an unparalleled opportunity to propel digital health practices forward, positively impacting all aspects of the cancer patient’s experience.”
