Having a life-threatening disease, such as cancer, is devastating. It’s like being forced to start a new job with no applicable experience, a job you can’t quit, and in which poor performance might cost you your life.

In 2017, the U.S. alone spent over $80 billion a year researching and treating cancer. Despite new developments and the progress being made:

  • Treatment approaches are complex and vary widely
  • We don’t really know how treatments perform outside of clinical trials, in the real world
  • Patients have a hard time understanding their disease and navigating their care

Outcomes4Me helps patients improve their outcomes while simultaneously accelerating the overall cycle of progress. Our app gives patients the ability to manage every aspect of their treatment and recovery. By partnering with national organizations and premier medical institutions, we’re able to provide verified content and functionality that doctors can recommend and patients can trust.

What you'll find here:

  • Purpose: If you gain strength from doing important work, you belong on our team.
  • Challenge: We’re improving the lives of people who need us. We have big challenges ahead and the motivation to overcome them.
  • Trust: We’re building a culture of independence. That means we’re going to trust and support you in making the right decisions.
  • Transparency: You need to see the whole picture if you’re going to make an impact.
  • Modernity: We took a vote, and Git narrowly beat out SVN and CVS. Yippee! (j/k)
