Outcomes4Me, a free mobile app and platform for cancer patients to navigate cancer treatment and care, has raised $4.7 Million in a funding round led by Asset Management Ventures. Others participating in the funding round included  Sierra Ventures, Merstal Ltd. and the National Cancer Institute.

Outcomes4Me said it’ll use the funds to expand its reach to a larger number and variety of breast cancer patients.

“Outcomes4Me is the first commercially available app to offer all breast cancer patients a personalized evidence-based experience to help them navigate their care, irrespective of their geography or healthcare provider,” said Outcomes4Me.

The HIPAA-compliant app uses artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to analyze medical records and provide patients with actionable and timely information. 

The technology has already been applied to medical records from more than 700 institutions in the United States and Canada, giving organizations valuable insights into treatment protocols, clinical outcomes and patient-reported outcomes.

The app also provides access to various resources, including information previously targeting physicians only, such as the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical (NCCN) Practice Guidelines and drug information from evidence-based clinical decision support provider UpToDate.

"Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and overwhelming. Outcomes4Me is on a mission to support patients through this journey by empowering them with easy to understand, relevant and evidence-based information," said Maya R. Said, Sc. D., founder, president and CEO of Outcomes4Me. 

Said continued, "Patients are our highest priority as we strive to bring transparency between them and the medical field, using our continually evolving insights to improve care and accelerate research."

Additionally, Outcomes4Me announced that Sami Shalabi, who previously headed up engineering and product development at Google, has joined the team as chief operating officer.

“We want to continue making it simple for patients to navigate their care," Maya said. "Sami understands this goal and brings a product sophistication that I am confident will help evolve our product suite in ways that both our users and partners will love."

The Outcomes4Me app is available to users via the Apple App Store and Google Play.
