Crohn’s Colitis Cure’s (CCCs) purpose is to ‘transform patient outcomes’ in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and be ‘instrumental in finding a cure’. CCC began its life as a charity in 2011 with a goal to create a technology asset that would make patient care more efficient, provide better outcomes for patients and clinicians, and develop a database which could be used to facilitate research into potential cures for Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
It started with a small group of passionate physicians in the field of IBD from Australia and the United Kingdom, who could see there was a better way to address care needs for their patients. In conjunction with ANZIBDC, CCC requested tenders for the co-design and build of such a bespoke system.
What has followed over the last 10 years is the development of a cloud-based software tool (Crohn’s Colitis Care – CCCare), which benefits from very informed & bought-in clinical/community expertise in the initial and ongoing design.
