Targeted Therapy Finder--Melanoma is a free, Web-based decision-support app that helps cancer patients learn about their skin cancer and oncologists identify the best tests, treatments, and clinical trials for the type of melanoma the person has.

The app was created through collaboration between software services firm CollabRX and the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and runs on mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads. It asks doctors and patients a set of questions and then helps them narrow down the promising treatments and clinical trials associated with the patient's specific subtypes of melanoma and other characteristics.
