OneOncology & Aptitude Health Create Strategic Collaboration
Atlanta, GA and Nashville, TN – February 18, 2021 -- Aptitude Health, a global healthcare and oncology solutions leader, today announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with OneOncology, the national partnership of independent community oncologists driving the future of cancer care in the U.S. The first collaboration will incorporate Aptitude Health’s proprietary PIVOT platform in order to better understand real-world community oncology treatment trends and challenges in OneOncology practices and to strive to improve patient outcomes through better collaboration between community-based clinicians, clinical disease state experts and life-science partners.
OneOncology partners with the nation’s top community oncology practices and their physicians to support the delivery of comprehensive, high-quality, cost-effective services across the continuum of cancer care to patients close to home. Since its launch in September 2018, nine practices across the U.S., representing nearly 550 providers practicing at more than 175 sites of care have joined OneOncology.
For over 11 years, Aptitude Health and its global Axess Network of over 2,100 oncology and hematology key opinion leaders and community physicians have been dedicated to utilizing the world’s growing scientific and clinical practice knowledge to improve outcomes for patients with cancer. Aptitude Health programming is designed to educate, measure and benchmark treatment patterns though online and live activities and then to provide these results back to the Axess Network and life science partners through reports designed to highlight current treatment trends, educational and resource needs. Aptitude Health’s well-regarded business insights, programs and reports empower oncologists to learn from their peers and to leverage their collective experience.
“Aptitude Health is committed to understanding barriers to patients and community-based oncology practices accessing innovative and novel therapies that improve their outcomes and care” stated Michael Fleming, Chief Commercial Officer of Aptitude Health. “To do so, we design programs in collaboration with community practices to understand Real-World Data and evidence supporting patterns of care delivery. This partnership with OneOncology is developed with patients’ outcomes at the center of this collaboration”
The Aptitude Health PIVOT platform is a proprietary model that allows oncology stakeholders to gather quantitative and qualitative insights from community oncologists, then measure and benchmark those insights to the appropriate standard of care. This critical information is then disseminated to the entire network of oncologists. The PIVOT platform collaboration with OneOncology is designed to support OneOncology’s Education Committee initiatives with innovative insight collection that supports exchange of clinical information, creates scientific debate and development of best practices for patient care. OneOncology clinical partners will also have access to Aptitude Health’s broad education and research platforms as well as customized programs designed to leverage the expertise of OneOncology’s physicians across its platform.
“The pace of scientific discovery in oncology is unrelenting and delivers practicing oncologists more treatment options than ever before,” said Lee Schwartzberg, MD, Chief Medical Officer, OneOncology. “Our collaboration with Aptitude Health compliments the work we do at OneOncology to deliver clinical insights to our practices that allow them to stay on top of the trends in oncology and continue to deliver the highest quality cancer care, close to home.”
