Platinum sponsor NantHealth will showcase GPS Cancer® and precision medicine solutions for oncology at booth #314
Culver City, California and Washington D.C. – March 14, 2018 – NantHealth, Inc., (Nasdaq: NH), a leading next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, announced today that they will be exhibiting at the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) 44th Annual Meeting & Cancer Center Business Summit taking place March 14-16 at the Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel at booth #314. As a platinum level sponsor of the summit, NantHealth is proud to support this powerful community of multidisciplinary practitioners in their efforts to promote the highest quality of cancer care.
NantHealth scientific and clinical experts will be onsite to discuss recent data on the importance of tumor-normal sequencing to deliver precise information to oncologists to inform their treatment decisions for patients. NantHealth’s GPS Cancer solution provides the most comprehensive molecular profile available to inform personalized treatment strategies – from DNA to RNA to protein. By analyzing a patient’s individual tumor profile, GPS Cancer offers insight into therapies that may have potential benefits, including FDA approved therapies and active clinical trials, and therapies to which the cancer may be resistant.
“As value-based care increases in importance and becomes further embedded into healthcare practices, precision medicine will play a critical role in effectively managing the health of not only the population, but individuals,” said Patrick Soon-Shiong, MD, founder and CEO of NantHealth. “By putting patients at the center of their own care, precision medicine has the capacity to generate robust information about their individual and unique rare diseases and enable researchers to develop more effective therapies for superior treatment.”
Unlike other tests on the market, GPS Cancer sequences the whole genome of 20,000+ genes and three billion base pairs and matches against the patient’s normal DNA, providing oncologists with a precise view of alterations to inform personalized treatment strategies. This clinically relevant information helps oncologists to better understand how patients may potentially respond to chemotherapies, targeted therapies and immunotherapies. GPS Cancer is performed in CAP-accredited, CLIA-certified labs.
As a platinum sponsor of this event, NantHealth is committed to empowering every member of the multidisciplinary cancer team to provide exceptional patient care. By leveraging the latest advancements in precision medicine and software technology to enable true value-based care, NantHealth believes that a successful transition to next generation healthcare solutions is possible for every organization.
