On May 3, ASCO's CancerLinQ® and Atropos Health announced a new collaboration that will provide oncology clinicians with the latest real-world evidence available to help inform personalized care and treatment of an individual patient.

Atropos Health and CancerLinQ will work together to provide a “digital consult” to pressing clinical questions that are important in tailoring treatment decisions. Participating clinicians on the CancerLinQ platform will be able to request an on-demand analysis of millions of aggregated de-identified records of similar patient cases and outcomes, which will be delivered within days in the form of a “Prognostogram” report, leveraging best-in-class, peer-reviewed observational research methodologies.

“At CancerLinQ, we are guided by our commitment to deliver solutions to oncologists that improve the quality of care for patients in concrete and measurable ways,” said Sean Khozin, MD, MPH, chief executive officer of CancerLinQ LLC. “Our collaboration with Atropos Health will enable us to provide high-quality real-world evidence derived from diverse patient populations to help oncologist individualize treatment decisions at the point of care.”
