We are pleased to announce that Journey Forward’s My Care Plan is one of three finalists in the Crowds Care 4 Cancer Challenge supported by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), in conjunction with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), to drive health innovation forward. Journey Forward is a combined effort of the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship (NCCS), WellPoint, Inc., the UCLA Cancer Survivorship Center, Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) and Genentech that promotes the use of treatment summaries and follow-up plans that give clear steps for care and monitoring after active cancer treatment.

Journey-forward-newSurvivorship care planning is one element of NCCS’s work. NCCS’s goal is to ensure that every cancer patient has access to care planning and care coordination before, during, and after treatment.

This is a “crowd funding” program that is carried by MedStartr.com, which provides a platform for projects that have a health focus. We are asking Journey Forward supporters to provide feedback and potentially support My Care Plan through July 5th.My Care Plan is competing for a $25,000 award from NCI to further this work.
