NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2018/ — PM360, a leading trade magazine for marketing decision makers in the pharmaceutical, biotech, medical device, and diagnostics industries, has named Kognito’s Talk to Someone: Triple Negative Breast Cancer as one of the most innovative Products of 2018.
Talk to Someone: Triple Negative Breast Cancer is an online simulation that gives patients the opportunity to navigate through questions about breast cancer and treatment, and get answers from an emotionally responsive virtual triple negative breast cancer survivor named Linda. Patients lead the conversation by selecting questions about breast cancer, chemotherapy, life during treatment, and survivorship to Linda. The goal is to help patients gain the understanding to make the right treatment decision for themselves.
“This app provides a safe and personalized environment for patients to ask questions and approach emotional topics with a judgment-free, empathetic, virtual breast cancer survivor who is always available to talk and never short on time,” says Ron Goldman, Kognito Co-Founder & CEO. “We are excited to extend our use of conversations with virtual humans to offer this new form of patient education.”
Talk to Someone: Triple Negative Breast Cancer was selected as part of PM360’s 7th Annual Innovations Issue published each December. This issue was established to serve as a guide to the year’s most innovative Companies, Startups, Divisions, Products, Services, and Strategies from within the healthcare and life sciences industries. This comprehensive overview of the year’s most innovative achievements in these six categories helps other companies in the industry to find potential partners and offerings that can help them advance healthcare and life sciences.
“Our selections represent the companies, offerings, and strategies that demonstrated what we believe is unique in its ability to impact the industry,” says Anna Stashower, CEO/Publisher of PM360. “We hope others in the industry are able to work with these innovators or use these innovations to better serve patients, physicians, and other healthcare stakeholders.”
PM360 received hundreds of submissions from across the healthcare and life sciences industries. The editorial staff of PM360 evaluated each submission and selected their picks for the most innovative, regardless of category. Ultimately, more than 60 total innovations were featured in the issue. Within the Product category, a total of 18 products were featured.
