Careology is proud to be included in this year's Combating Cancer special report by Raconteur, published in The Times.
Throughout 2020 we have seen the need for technology to better support people living and dealing with cancer. With reduced face-to-face hospital appointments and limited supporting services available due to the pandemic, Careology is supporting patients - helping them to feel safe, more organised and involved in their treatment. Whilst also providing effective remote patient monitoring for healthcare professionals - enabling supported self-administration, proactive care and better informed consultations.
This digital approach will be vital as the numbers of people in the UK living with cancer is forecast to rise from 2.5 million to four million by 2030, according to Macmillan Cancer Support. Digital cancer care is key to improving health outcomes and long-term survival rates, with the NHS investing in technology to meet an ambition that by 2028 an extra 55,000 people each year will survive for five years or more following diagnosis.
Paul Landau, Founder & CEO of Careology said:
“We have received very positive feedback from the patients and caregivers who are using Careology. It’s helping them feel far more secure, organised and connected during treatment. For clinicians and healthcare providers, it represents an opportunity to drive efficient and cost-effective cancer services.”

Careology is building the world’s leading digital cancer care platform. By equipping and seamlessly connecting patients, caregivers and healthcare teams in a complex pathway, our mission is to use technology to transform traditional cancer care and change everyone’s cancer story for the better. Today the platform allows patients to manage and navigate all aspects of treatment from their device, while leveraging critical data on symptoms, medications, side effects and more, to deliver insight and analysis to clinical teams through a ‘virtual ward’. By increasing the potential for patients to self-serve, improving workflows, making 24/7 monitoring possible and putting a unique data set to work, we are helping to relieve pressure on health systems, while reducing costs, improving patient and clinician experience, and optimising health outcomes.
