OWise how it works

How it started

Dr. Anne Bruinvels, an expert in personalised medicine, founded Px HealthCare in 2012. During her time as the Executive Director at the European Personalised Medicine Association, Anne realised that cancer patients’ experience following diagnosis is much poorer than it needs to be. Px was founded to address this by correctly informing and supporting patients throughout treatment and recovery.

Revolutionising the use of the patient’s voice

Since then, the objective of Px HealthCare has been to revolutionise the use of patient’s voice to improve both patient experience and clinical outcomes in cancer. 

In order to provide this important service, Anne teamed up with her brother David, an oncology specialised physician supporting patients return to work, to develop a smart digital platform. OWise for breast cancer was created first as David noticed at his breast rehabilitation clinic that these patients were desperately asking for support.

The OWise breast cancer app was first launched in the Netherlands in 2013 and then brought to the UK in 2016 through the NHS Innovation Accelerator Programme. OWise will be expanded to address other types of cancer in the very near future.
