Noah Therapies provides highly personalized therapy guides specific to the disease and each individual patient.
Our digital guides combine precision medicine with evidence-based integrative care to help patients deal with the physical, mental and administrative burden of cancer therapy.
We use the data of our community to bring science forward and improve therapy outcomes in oncology. We want to use technology to make cutting-edge medicine accessible to everyone.
Cancer is one of the most significant public health challenges of the 21st century. And a huge economic burden at the same time.
In 2020, there were 19.3 million new cancer cases. This number is projected to 28.9 million per year by 2040 (WHO).
The global oncology spending worldwide was 108 billion dollars in 2017 and climbed to 206 billion in 2022. (link)
The good news: The improved possibilities through early detection and the advancements in Precision Medicine (tailoring of medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each tumor) have improved oncological treatments tremendously leading to increased survival rate across all stages (from very early to late-stage).

The bad news: The incidence of cancer cases is rising and individualized therapy plans for cancer treatment are becoming more and more complex.
For example: The survival rate of a breast cancer patient today is 90%, but the therapy path of a typical breast cancer patient includes over 250 diagnostic and therapeutic tasks during therapy involving at least 5 different types of medical specialists.
The organization and coordination of therapies with primarily analog processes is causing an administrative nightmare for patients and doctors alike. The organizational burden remains largely the responsibility of the patient in addition to the often severe side effects as well as mental and physical trauma caused by the disease.
