Flatiron Health announces research to be presented at American Society of Clinical Oncology 2024 Annual Meeting

Advancing oncology and bridging healthcare gaps

Flatiron Health today announced its significant presence at this year’s American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, to be held in Chicago this June. Nine abstracts led by Flatiron have been accepted for poster presentation and online publication. A comprehensive of all accepted research using Flatiron data is available via ASCO's website.

Aligned with the conference theme, 'The Art and Science of Cancer Care: From Comfort to Cure,' Flatiron is dedicated to spearheading evidence generation in oncology. This year’s accepted research reflects that dive into critical touch points across the oncology ecosystem.

“At Flatiron, we're pioneering new approaches to address health equity, enhance clinical trials, and bridge the gap between routine care and research,” stated Neal Meropol, VP of Research Oncology, Flatiron Health. “Through innovative methodologies and real-world evidence, we're generating insights to improve cancer treatment and care delivery on behalf of patients. By seamlessly integrating science, technology, and medicine, we aim to deliver impactful results in collaboration with our partners."

This year’s accepted abstracts once again showcase Flatiron’s commitment to collaboration and partnership in pursuit of its mission to improve and extend lives by learning from the experience of every person with cancer.

Highlights include:

  • A study employing machine-learning models across a nationwide cohort to explore practice patterns in the face of chemotherapy shortages.
  • A study exploring the role of biomarkers in guiding treatment for metastatic breast cancer, focusing specifically on patients with HR+/HER2- tumors.
  • A study examining how structural racism and social determinants of health contribute to inequities in endometrial cancer care, particularly among patients with advanced disease.
