CollabRx said this week that is has signed a multi-year agreement with Projects In Knowledge, a developer of digital and mobile information tools and continuing medical education programs, to jointly distribute software applications to over 35,000 oncologists and clinicians in its clinician network.
Under the terms of the agreement, the partners will integrate CollabRx's Therapy Finder applications into Projects In Knowledge's @Point of Care360 platform, an interactive medical textbook that gives clinicians access to educational resources.
CollabRx's Therapy Finder is a series of web-based applications for oncology that help clinicians and their patients select the most appropriate treatments for tumors. These apps use data from an underlying proprietary knowledgebase that the company has developed that contains aggregated data from multiple public sources including published papers, conference abstracts, clinical trials, and diagnostic guidelines (BI 2/22/2013).
The partners said that they will seek support from pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in the form of educational grants to conduct their initial activities and that they will explore other fundraising mechanisms to support later phases of the partnership.
