The Cancer Innovation Challenge is a £1M project funded by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC) to encourage Innovation Centres in Scotland to work in partnership to help Scotland become a world leading carer for people with cancer through open innovation funding calls for data science solutions.
We have decided to run a series of episodes on the Cancer Innovation Challenge focusing on what it is, who’s involved and the results from it. This episodes guest is Tim Williams CEO of My Clinical Outcomes. My Clinical Outcomes were one of 3 companies involved in the Cancer Innovation Challenge. The other two will be featured in the following two episodes. My Clinical Outcomes (MCO) is a web-based platform that automates the collection and analysis of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs). Data is collected regularly and remotely throughout diagnosis, treatment and long-term follow-up for any clinical condition. Watch our video to see an overview of what we do.
MCO was founded in 2011 and has collected data at over 70 hospitals, with over 1,000 clinicians and 45,000 patients using the system. The MCO team use this extensive experience to continually develop the platform and inform effective implementation. MCO integrates with existing workflows and is highly interoperable with other technical systems. It can be configured and implemented quickly so that outcomes data can be used to support clinical improvements within weeks.
