At Advancing Synergy, we bring together expertise in science, health care, public health, and information technology to advance our mission of developing innovations that empower individual and impact communities to achieve health equity and improve long-term health outcomes.
Our current focus in on developing appropriate, cost-efficient technologies to optimize resources and deliver the right information for cancer prevention and care to patients at the right time at their point of need℠. Despite advances in cancer care, certain populations continue to bear an unequal burden of illness. Through our work, we aim to address both the increasing costs of cancer care and the unequal burden of cancer by ensuring that individuals faced with a family history or diagnoses of cancer have access to the information and resources needed to support them in their decision-making and care. We aim to ensure that all individuals faced with a family history or diagnoses of cancer receive the right information at the right time to optimize treatment and improve overall health outcomes.
The Advancing Synergy team believes in engaging all stakeholders, especially the end-users, throughout technology development to ensure that the resulting technology will be useful to and accepted by the target audience. Advancing Synergy works in collaboration with community-based leaders and research teams to develop and implement evidence-based solutions for resource-limited settings that combine existing information technology tools with customized applications.
important for us
To develop innovations that empower individuals and impact communities to achieve health equity and improve long-term health outcomes. Resource constrained areas from inner cities to remote villages often fail to realize the benefits of advancements in health technology.
Current solutions are often too expensive to develop and sustain and in the worst case scenarios are not being used because end user needs and processes were not considered and met. Our sustainable, scalable, and interoperable approach combines existing information technology tools with customized applications to leverage local infrastructure and address a market niche that has received limited attention. Our approach helps to ensure that implemented solutions are locally relevant and sustained over time.
Advancing Synergy aims to understand client and end user needs and leverage off-the-shelf and open source tools with minimal customization. Advancing Synergy's goal is to provide sophisticated, cost-effective data collection, reporting, and monitoring applications that impact individuals and empower communities to achieve better health by optimizing often limited resources through technology.
Advancing Synergy's solutions will help to address health disparities that continue to persist despite advances in care and treatment and will be developed in collaboration with community-based leaders and research teams.
