MedShr to launch online Global Tumor Boards at the ASCO Annual Meeting, Chicago, USA (1 – 5 June 2018)

Global network for doctors offers a unique platform for online multidisciplinary discussion of cancer patient cases in new Tumor Boards

LONDON, 1 June 2018

MedShr, the HIPAA, GMC and GDPR compliant app for doctors, is launching Global Tumor Boards at the American Society of Clinical Oncology Annual Meeting (ASCO) which takes place in Chicago, 1st-5th June 2018. 

MedShr Tumor Boards connect cancer clinicians around the world for clinical case discussion, enabling them to share knowledge and skills with colleagues around the world.  

MedShr is free to use and makes it easy for medical professionals involved in cancer care to discuss patients’ symptoms, clinical signs and investigations, and plan tests and treatment in a unique online environment. The initiative will unite doctors and specialists nurses in a series of discussion groups for all cancers with specific Tumor Boards for Breast, Lung, Prostate and Colorectal Cancer.

MedShr is fully HIPAA, GDPR and GMC compliant with over 500,000 members worldwide. It is the safest way to discuss patients and decide upon their treatment plans whilst protecting their data. Cases can be illustrated with scans and clinical images and updated as needed, for example post-op following a lumpectomy to evaluate the need for further radiotherapy.

MedShr accommodates the busy schedules of these doctors by eliminating the need for entire teams to be in the same room. Medical professionals can also benefit and learn from cancer care discussions taking place around the world.

MedShr backs RBM Partnership to end malaria at Malaria Summit in London

MedShr backs RBM Partnership to end malaria

17 April, 2018

MedShr – the global network for medical professionals – will attend the Malaria Summit in London on 18th April, showing its commitment to improving care for patients with malaria, and ultimately eradicating it completely.

“Malaria remains a major cause of infant mortality in endemic areas, and so whilst we try to find an effective vaccine to prevent the condition, it is essential that doctors and healthcare professionals continue to discuss and share cases and treatment methods actively. MedShr supports this through its platform designed to facilitate and improve care for these patients through knowledge exchange,” says Dr Asif Qasim, founder of MedShr.

The Malaria Summit London brings together leaders from across sectors to shape the political commitments, financial investments and technological innovation needed to help reduce cases and deaths whilst we attempt to end malaria for good. Tackling malaria is an essential part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and represents excellent value for money: every $1 invested in malaria interventions delivers $36 in social and economic benefits.

The Malaria Summit London will be co-hosted by the Governments of Swaziland and Rwanda and convened by the RBM Partnership to End Malaria and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and will run alongside the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

MedShr is an app and platform for the medical community to share and discuss clinical cases. To date, there are over 500,000 members on MedShr engaged in active learning through case discussion.
