Dr. Daniel Vorobiof says ‘these global studies underline the importance of reliable support for patients during their fight against cancer’
The American Society of Clinical Oncology published two studies based on data aggregated by Israeli startup Belong.Life, which provided key insights for oncology patients.
Considered one of the world’s leading providers of patient communities and care platforms, Belong.Life co-authored the studies with the Oncology Division of Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center, and used data with permission of its users.
Our aggregated real-world data highlights critical observations, improving understanding of real patient journeys and providing invaluable insights for doctors, patients and the global oncology ecosystem,” said Belong.Life CEO Eliran Malki.
The first study examined the prevalence of restrictive behavioral practices in cancer patients. It analyzed 1,395 patients receiving cancer treatment, who completed a questionnaire validated by Tel Aviv’s Sourasky Medical Center. At least one limitation in daily activities was reported by 73% of patients.
