- Roche launches an app ecosystem with the first two clinical decision support apps
- The apps query globally-renowned resources based on real-world data
- Patient-specific results lead to more personalised treatment decisions by oncology care teams
Basel, 18 September 2018 - Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX:RHHBY) today announced the launch of the first two NAVIFY® clinical decision support apps: The NAVIFY Clinical Trial Match and NAVIFY Publication Search apps help oncology care teams access relevant clinical trial information and publications more effectively.
Finding the most relevant up-to-date clinical trials and relevant literature is a cumbersome and labour-intensive process. The two launched apps available on the NAVIFY Tumor Board facilitate this process:
NAVIFY Clinical Trial Match app identifies clinical trial options based on patient-specific attributes such as age, gender, biomarkers and various tumour information from 11 international registries (incl. ClinicalTrials.gov, German Clinical Trials Registry (DRKS) and European Clinical Trials Registry (EUCTR)).
NAVIFY Publication Search app mines publication sources globally (incl. PubMed, American Society of Clinical Oncology, American Association of Central Cancer Registries) for most recent clinically and therapeutically relevant literature. The content of both apps is provided by MolecularMatch, Inc., a clinical informatics company with expertise in precision oncology, immunotherapy and bioinformatics.
The launch of these first two apps is the start of the NAVIFY apps ecosystem. More apps from Roche, partners and third parties will follow to expand the clinical decision support functionalities.
"With our leading portfolio covering diagnostics, therapies and data, Roche is uniquely positioned to actively shape the digitalisation of healthcare. With innovative solutions such as the NAVIFY clinical decision support apps we move one step closer to offering more personalised care across the patient journey, from diagnosis to therapy decision, treatment and medical monitoring," says Roche CEO Severin Schwan.
