New Collaboration within Big Data Unites Leading Oncology Professionals to Bring Improvements to Cancer Care 

 

 

 

 

 

CancerLinQ™ is a health information technology platform from CancerLinQ LLC, a subsidiary of the American Society of Clinical Oncology Inc., containing vast amounts of real-world cancer information aimed at enhancing and improving the understanding and treatment of cancer.

Each person’s cancer experience tells a unique story. When these stories come together, they become a powerful tool that can actually improve cancer care for everyone, everywhere.

This big data initiative is a rapid learning health system that allows providers to improve the quality and value of care by analyzing millions of cancer patient medical records, uncovering patterns and trends, and measuring their care against that of their peers and recommended guidelines.

The platform uses SAP Connected Health built on the SAP HANA® platform, a flexible, multi-purpose data management and application platform created by SAP.

When a provider participates in CancerLinQ, treatment information about patients is added to a database that includes thousands of other people with cancer. Providers can use this information to help make decisions about their patients’ care, and, in turn, their patients’ information contributes to the care of others.
