CHENNAI: Apollo Hospitals launched an online clinical opinion service, designed specifically for cancer patients around the globe and those seeking medical opinion on cancer from its specialists. Through this service, patients anywhere in the world can login to www.apollocanceropinion.com, upload their medical reports and have their cases reviewed by various oncologists in Asia across the Apollo network.
Given the criticality of getting the correct treatment at the right time, which can often be stressful and time consuming, the service will simplify the process by providing detailed treatment plans to patients who then can be better prepared and informed on their treatment modality, length of stay and overall prognosis.
A patient can get personalized treatment plans that include knowing whether surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy is an option, as per the convenience of the patient.
The treatment plan includes complete details of the patient-specific regimen most suitable at that time given all considerations especially patient preferences. “Given the rising incidence and prevalence of cancer, it is critical that patients have complete clarity and timely information at hand so that they can take informed decisions to beat this burden of disease. Through this service, we can help in ensuring that the right treatment for any patient starts quickly and most appropriately,” said Dr Prathap C. Reddy, founder, Apollo Hospitals.
