Approximately 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. With improved testing and better treatment options, the death rate has declined significantly in the past decade. However, prostate cancer survivors face isolation and anxiety throughout their survivorship phase, despite strong support from family and healthcare providers.
Ned is a self-care platform that uniquely links patients and their providers to reduce the burden that many patients face and ultimately enhance the survivorship journey. For patients, Ned presents a personalized view of their own symptoms, allows access to their Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) results, and provides clinically validated surveys such as the Health Related Quality of Life Questionnaires. This data can be analyzed by their providers to prompt behavioural or treatment changes, or to inform trends in health outcomes. Ned is an empowering solution that enriches patients’ understanding of their own conditions and improves communication with their oncologists.
