CHICAGO – December 19, 2016 – ContextMedia:Health, the leading provider of healthcare decision platforms that enable positive health outcomes, today announced a partnership with the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN). Through this partnership, information produced by BCAN will be delivered by way of ContextMedia:Health’s decision platform in relevant Oncology and Urology practices in ContextMedia:Health’s network of offices.
“Though it is a common cancer in America, many bladder cancer patients know little about their disease at their initial diagnosis” notes Stephanie Chisolm, BCAN’s Director of Education and Research. “This partnership will enable us to share our trusted information and resources, empowering patients to learn more about their disease and treatment options, while they are in their physician’s office.”
According to the American Cancer Society, nearly 77,000 adults will be diagnosed with bladder cancer in the United States this year, and among men, bladder cancer is the fourth most common cancer. With an urgency around ensuring that those impacted by the condition receive access to management information and resources, this partnership brings BCAN into the consultation room via ContextMedia:Health’s platform, which includes digital anatomy boards, interactive educational tablets and waiting room screens.
“It is critical to bring bladder cancer-related information to the individuals that could benefit the most,” said Matt Garms, Director of Associations Partnerships at ContextMedia:Health. “We hope to deepen understanding and advocacy around bladder cancer and its related conditions, not only for the patients who live with the disease, but for the caregivers and providers that can help better outcomes.”
ContextMedia:Health provides interactive technology platforms that enable patient decisions and positive health outcomes. Founded in 2006, the company has doubled each year in its scale of technology implementation at outpatient health care facilities, business partnerships with global life sciences and medical device companies, product innovation and team growth.
