Navigating Cancer is committed to improving the lives of cancer patients and those who care for them by learning from the experience of every cancer patient.
In service of this mission, Navigating Cancer works with close to 100 oncology clinics to create datasets that enable our clinics to provide the best care possible and researchers to accelerate their understanding of the way cancer treatments work.
The datasets that we create are considered “de-identified,” meaning that they do not contain personally-identifiable information such as your name or social security number. Our datasets are also “aggregated,” which means that we combine de-identified patient records to compare with others. If your doctor’s practice utilizes our Navigating Cancer products and solutions, the clinical data (such as stage of your cancer or length of treatment) that we do collect, de-identify and aggregate allows us to understand why certain patients benefit more than others when given a particular treatment or different types of care.
Please know that Navigating Cancer will never use your information – even in de-identified form – for marketing purposes.
Your de-identified data, along with that of thousands of other patients, is contributing to cancer research and is helping to accelerate the development of new treatment options and innovation for future patients. However, we respect your right as a patient to opt-out of this research. If you wish to know whether you are treated at a clinic that uses Navigating Cancer’s technology, please ask your provider if they are utilizing Navigating Cancer technology. If you are still unsure whether your information is included in our datasets, or if you would like to opt-out of our research, please complete the form below. From there, a member of Navigating Cancer will contact you to confirm that your opt-out request has been processed.
