S13: #115: CancerX Initiative Aims to Reduce Cancer Deaths by 50% by 2047
The Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) and Moffitt Cancer Center have announced they are co-hosting CancerX, a new public-private partnership effort to rapidly accelerate the pace of cancer innovation in the U.S.
Alongside the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Moffitt Cancer Center and DiMe are urging the healthcare and digital health sectors to boost technology-driven initiatives to combat cancer. The two groups are working together to accelerate cancer research advancements, and they invite other organizations to do the same.
The Biden administration’s revived Cancer Moonshot includes the new CancerX public-private partnership. According to officials, the goal is to use industry collaboration and disruptive innovation to lessen the burden of cancer on everyone.
The CancerX program will focus on using digital innovation to reduce disparities and financial toxicity in cancer care and research, working with government organizations, and will enlist industry parties to help with the mammoth undertaking.
CancerX uniquely blends DiMe’s expertise in convening cross-disciplinary groups to develop clinical-quality resources on a tech timeline with Moffitt’s top research and care experts working side-by-side to revolutionize cancer treatment, extend access to the highest-quality care, and save more lives. The initiative is open to all those working in the field who are committed to working collaboratively and share a vision of unleashing the power of innovation to design and create a future that’s free of the burden of cancer.
