Healthcare company secures five figure grant to launch digital cancer care platform
A London healthcare company has received a “significant” five-figure grant to launch a digital platform for cancer care.
ONKO, a provider of unified cancer care, has been awarded the grant by Innovate UK.
The funding will support the pilot implementation of ONKO’s digital solution, working with Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
ONKO combines digital technology with the support of healthcare professionals to provide patients with personalised expertise from cancer dietitians, physiotherapists, specialist nurses and psychologists.
Krishna Moorthy, cancer surgeon and ONKO co-founder, commented: “This funding will accelerate our ability to get the ONKO platform in the hands of NHS patients and give them the best possible chance of recovery from cancer.
“We are excited to be working with Imperial on this project and are pleased Innovate UK saw the potential in ONKO to deliver life-changing impact to many.”
Prof Catherine Urch, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust Lead Cancer, added: “We are delighted to partner with ONKO, an incredibly innovative development that will enable thousands of patients to benefit from improved self-management, motivation and well-being, all of which lead to improved outcomes.
“This approach will completely change care of patients and ensure they are equal partners in their health and wellbeing.”
