Who We Are
Navya empowers every cancer patient, caregiver, and physician with timely, personalized, and affordable treatment plans based on clinical evidence and consensus-driven, real-time expertise of Tata Memorial Centre and National Cancer Grid, a network of India's leading expert cancer centers.
EXPERTS IN OUR NETWORK
We built Navya on the belief that every cancer patient deserves access to expertise, no matter their location, socioeconomic status, or ability to research medical information.
Democratizing Access to Cancer Experts
There is only one cancer expert for every 16,000 cancer cases in India. We connect patients to organ-specific expert oncologists who are concentrated in major hospitals in Tier 1 cities.
We use technology to simplify the complex process of cancer care, giving patients the best odds to beat cancer. Access to expert opinions at the right time empowers patients to make informed treatment decisions.
End-to-End Empathetic Care
Our patient advocates help patients navigate treatment decisions. Our treatment plans consider data, experts, and patients’ personal preferences before recommending a plan that will ensure the best outcome.
