- Pointellis serves parties involved in individualized cancer therapy, from patients to providers and manufacturers
- New solution supports a digital ecosphere and the timely flow of information and materials along the value chain
With the number of new cancer cases per year expected to exceed 23 million worldwide by 2030, cancer remains one of the world’s most pressing health care challenges due to the costs involved for health care providers and drug manufacturers. This problem will be exacerbated by an aging and growing population worldwide with more patients with cancer seeking treatment in the future.
A digital ecosphere
Bringing together deep analytics knowledge from EY teams with Microsoft technology, Pointellis helps enable the six core function areas of a digital ecosphere. It expedites the timely flow of information and materials along the end-to-end value chain, helping patients to receive the care they need.
The six core functions are:
- Biometric chain of identity/custody, to track and trace biopsy tissue and blood samples from point of care when the patient first enters the system, all the way through medicine administration.
- Supply chain, to allow for enrolment, scheduling, demand and capacity planning as well as coordination of logistics and delivery.
- Patient engagement, to share appropriate information and keep the patient engaged through the waiting process as well as provide disease management information.
- Care management, to provide oncologists and health care providers who treat and support critically ill patients with up-to-date information and decision support based on the wealth of data captured through the platform.
- Health outcomes, to measure more accurately and allow providers, health systems, payers and manufacturers to adapt treatment and improve clinical benefit.
- Funds allotment, to manage the complexities of paying all who are involved with the treatment of a patient.
