LAF and Penn Med Partnership: Online Care Plan Tool for Patients
September 8, 2009, Volume 56, No. 02

The Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) and Penn Medicine announced a four-year partnership to further develop and disseminate the LIVESTRONG Care Plan powered by Penn Medicine’s OncoLink. This free service gives cancer survivors, their families and physicians the ability to create an individualized plan of care using up-to-date treatment information based on Institute of Medicine recommendations, as well educating them about their options to maintain optimal health once they are out of treatment.

Originally launched as OncoLife® on Penn Medicine’s OncoLink® website in 2007, the tool is the only one of its kind, created and updated continuously by a team of cancer physicians and nurses. With its transition to the LIVESTRONG Care Plan, it will be able to reach tens of thousands of additional cancer survivors, their friends, families and health care providers through the LAF’s many supportive activities and programs.
