One of ALCF’s most important services in 2015 will be our new 24/7 Patient Web Portal, an all-encompassing, centralized “go-to” hub embodying what we mean when we say that ALCF is a “patient-first, patient-focused” organization that takes a 3600 approach to living with lung cancer. Set to launch early this year this unique resource will connect patients/caregivers to a range of programs to support, guide, educate, empower and comfort them throughout their lung cancer journey.
The Portal’s landing page is a new, powerful, interactive 3-dimensional Patient Education/Communications Center that is the first-of-its-kind in proactively providing real-time medical/scientific breaking news to patients/caregivers with the option to engage in dialogue with ALCF’s Director of Research & Medical Affairs and/or our Education Programs & Services staff. This Center also opens the door to our Patient Community Resources section that links to multiple resources for lung cancer patients and provides access to patient-to-patient networking and peer-to-peer mentoring.
Our Portal provides the latest information on new treatments/therapeutics, diagnostics, prognostics and exciting developments in research that have immediate impact on lung cancer patient lives. Individuals may opt-in to access information in a way that works best for them: through daily updates/news flashes sent to their email or via ALCF’s smartphone app, on our website, or through a monthly newsletter. Many thanks to Genentech for their support of this critical new patient service!
