SmartBridge Health Announces New Partnership with CancerAid to Enhance Access to Empower Cancer Patients and Their Caregivers

WASHINGTON, DC — (May 7, 2017) — SmartBridge Health, the leader in matching cancer patients with high-quality oncologists and CancerAid, the #1 cancer app in the US, UK and Australia with 30,000 users, today announced a strategic partnership which will extend SmartBridge’s world-class care through remote consultations. The partnership will effectively use technology and innovative solutions to extend the reach of SmartBridge’s specialists to serve more patients in more countries.

By combining SmartBridge Health’s unparalleled clinical expertise with Cancer Aid’s community of heroes and champions, this collaboration will significantly reshape and advance cancer care access and delivery, especially for medically complex cases.

According to the New York Times, up to 28% of cancer diagnoses and treatment plans are incorrect.  If there’s any moment in your life when you want to be absolutely certain, it is when you are diagnoses with cancer. 

Through this new partnership, CancerAid will connect patients from around the world with top specialists at SmartBridge who are most uniquely qualified for patients’ clinical needs.

“We are very excited to be working together with CancerAid.  Our partnership will synergistically help more patients, regardless of where they live,” said Dr. Jeremy Force, co-founder of SmartBridge.  “Our oncologists are uniquely trained and experienced to treat clinically complex cases and are poised to extend their expertise to help those in need.”

"SmartBridge Health is a platform with incredible potential to offer world-class care to cancer patients and their familes," said Dr. Nikhil Pooviah, CEO of CancerAid.  "Through our new partnership, our CancerAid community will have greater access to top oncologists through innovative telemedicine."
