"Accessibility to cancer trials is not only critical to improving the quality of precision medicine, but it is also an invaluable option for the cancer patient whose survival is at stake," said Dr. Ken Dixon, founder of Specimatch, and founder/surgical oncologist of Surgical Oncologists of Northeast Georgia. "We created Specimatch as a solution for patients and oncologists to tap into a complex landscape of breakthrough treatments with both accuracy and simplicity. Specimatch alleviates the gaps in care by putting the power of precision medicine in the hands of patients and the doctors with whom they partner in the fight against cancer."
Specimatch is a monthly subscription-based software service offering:
- Continual 24/7 Monitoring – Combs database (powered by Thomson Reuters) of more than 250,000 trials to identify matching trials in real time, based on a user-completed clinical and genetic profile
- Email Notifications – Alerts users to latest clinical trials matching their specific molecular diagnosis
- Patient Interface – Allows patients to manage their information and matching trials anywhere through the intuitive, web- and mobile-friendly Care Timeline
- Care Provider Interface – Allows clinicians to review and manage information for each of their patients in one place
- HIPAA-Compliant Cloud Infrastructure – Protects patient information with best-in-class measures exceeding HIPAA requirements
"Specimatch restores the power that a cancer diagnosis can often steal from a patient," Dr. Dixon said. "We are proud to provide this timely information and access because we believe it's how cancer will meet its match and survival rates will improve."
