chemoWave, from Treatment Technologies & Insights, has more than 3,000 users with more than 70 different types of cancers. chemoWave was launched a month after results of a seven year clinical trial were presented at the 2017 annual meeting for the American Society of Clinical Oncologists (ASCO) that proved patient reported symptom tracking and monitoring saves and extends cancer patients' lives. Since then, chemoWave has launched a collaboration with ASCO's to provide patient insights via the chemoWave app from America's leading on-line destination for cancer patients.
