Created in collaboration with physicians, for physicians, CancerRx is the first mobile app to aggregate and contextualize the world’s knowledge of genomics-based medicine in oncology. It provides guidance at the point of care for the latest cancer treatment options. By combining state–of-the-art genomic knowledge, insights from the nation’s top cancer experts and award winning product design, we created this unique and easy-to-use decision support tool for use in cancer treatment planning.

In addition to treatment guidance, CancerRx provides the most up-to-date information on which molecular tests should be considered for specific cancer types. Based on the results of those tests, the app will guide physicians in their evaluation of therapy options, including approved and investigationaldrugs and clinical trials.

CancerRx is the result of a joint effort between CollabRx and MedPage Today.
