Modern Healthcare’s Innovators Awards & recognition program recognizes leaders and organizations thinking outside the box to improve care, achieve measurable results, and contribute to clinical and financial goals.

“The role of innovation has always been paramount in healthcare, and our 2024 honorees as top Innovators are driving real change in the industry,” said Mary Ellen Podmolik, editor in chief of Modern Healthcare. “The wide variety of projects underway by these executives and organizations demonstrates a dedication to tackling the ‘what ifs’ that can improve the delivery of healthcare and improve communities and the patient experience.”

“I’m honored to receive this incredible recognition from Modern Healthcare,” said Feyi Ayodele, CancerIQ co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “I want to thank our team, investors, partners, and most importantly, our customers for believing in me and for propelling CancerIQ to be the best, most innovative solution in its class.”

In 2013, Feyi entered a world with niche companies offering breast cancer risk models, pedigree drawing, and telehealth genetic counseling, and pioneered solving the whole problem and not a partial one with CancerIQ’s end-to-end solution. Working closely with thought leaders in the field, Feyi developed a comprehensive solution that now integrates family history, genomics, behavioral data and AI-generated risk data directly into clinical workflows. She has driven adoption of the platform across 225 diverse clinical locations and specialties to make a direct patient impact. This includes doubling the genetics workforce capacity in oncology, enhancing breast cancer risk assessment in imaging and improving overall cancer screening compliance rates — all of which benefits health systems and patients by shifting cancer diagnoses into earlier stages reducing both mortality and cost.

Unwavering in her dedication to her mission, Feyi has successfully garnered support from major players across the industry, securing over $26 million in venture capital funding led by Amgen Ventures and Merck Global Health Innovation. She has also forged partnerships with the industry’s leading diagnostic, genetic testing and pharmaceutical companies to connect everyday clinical care to the latest innovations in precision prevention, early detection and treatment.

Over the last year alone, Feyi has led CancerIQ to establish partnerships with leading AI solutions for breast cancer screening, streamline access to a marketplace of telehealth genetic counseling vendors, join the national CancerX Moonshot initiative and publish two peer-reviewed studies showing CancerIQ’s impact.
