February 26, 2024

Today SurvivorPlan was announced as being chosen as one of the 16 companies to be invited into the inaugural cohort of innovative cancer-focused companies that will be part of the CancerX program. These companies were chosen from hundreds of applicants, and were selected for their unique approaches to solving the biggest problems in cancer care.

CancerX is a public-private partnership announced by The White House as a national accelerator to boost innovation in the fight against cancer as part of the reignited Cancer Moonshot.

SurvivorPlan was selected by Moffitt Cancer Center and Atrium Health as their initial cancer program partners to work with during the CancerX program.

“Selection into the CancerX Program is a huge honor for SurvivorPlan,” said SurvivorPlan’s founder and CEO, Elaine Warren. “Participation in this program will give us new opportunities to expand our reach, bringing SurvivorPlan to more cancer patients and survivors. It will provide us with mentorship from some of the leading cancer centers in the country, and will help us scale our solution by working with other innovative companies and providers of cancer care. We are incredibly excited about this opportunity and look forward to working with all the CancerX mentors, sponsors, and partners over the next few months.”

SurvivorPlan mentioned in Journal of Cancer Survivorship
February 20, 2024

SurvivorPlan was mentioned recently in the Journal of Cancer Survivorship’s special issue titled “The History of Cancer Survivorship Centers in the US: Progress, Challenges, and Opportunities” [February 2024, Volume 18 Issue 1]

This special issue features eight cancer centers that are pioneers and leaders in cancer survivorship care delivery:

  • the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center
  • the University of California/Los Angeles Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • the Northwestern Medicine Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • the St Jude Children’s Research Hospital
  • the University of Pennsylvania Abramson Cancer Center
  • the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
  • the Stanford Cancer Institute
  • and the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center

The Roswell Park article features SurvivorPlan as a fully integrated part of their clinical care delivery framework, where it is used to foster communication with the patient and their primary care provider (PCP). Each new survivor receives a comprehensive survivorship care plan that includes a cancer treatment summary, potential late effects and long-term side effects of treatment, signs of recurrence, health promotion, and prevention recommendations. The survivorship care plan is reviewed with the patient at the end of the visit, and an abbreviated version of the survivorship care plan is sent to the PCP to increase awareness of the potential late effects.

SurvivorPlan has been an integral part of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s survivorship program since 2019, when their solution was chosen in a competitive process with distinct requirements set forth by a multi-disciplinary committee. For the last 5 years, SurvivorPlan has been a core component of the Roswell Park Cancer Institute’s survivorship program by helping to improve clinician efficiency and provide more comprehensive support for the complex needs of the program’s survivor patient population.
