PAN funding notification app reaches 50,000 users
The PAN Foundation today announced a milestone for its financial assistance app, FundFinder: surpassing 50,000 users.
PAN created the first-of-its-kind app in 2018 after patients and providers routinely shared the challenges of searching for available funding across multiple websites. With FundFinder, users can get automated alerts via text or email when funding becomes available at one of nine charitable organizations. The app tracks more than 200 disease-specific funds.
This award-winning app also allows users to search for support organizations that may have educational resources, peer support, and more for patients and caregivers. About 55 percent of FundFinder users are patients.
“We launched FundFinder to try to help our patients, healthcare providers, and pharmacy staff more efficiently find available funding,” said Ayesha Azam, Vice President of Medical Affairs at PAN. “We know how stressful the search for funding can be, and that once awarded, it can be life-changing. Reaching 50,000 users in our first three years is a testament to the need for this valuable app.”
FundFinder received top recognition in the 2021 Edison Best New Product Awards, earning the “gold” in its category for prescription drug access platforms.
