Dignitana AB, world leader in scalp cooling innovation, announced today that the Company has signed a master contract with American Oncology Network (AON), an alliance of community oncology practices in the United States. The FDA cleared DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System minimizes hair loss from chemotherapy in patients with solid tumors.
The agreement provides the opportunity for any of the 45 AON locations to easily provide DigniCap Scalp Cooling for their patients. This week two AON practices have added DigniCap services under this new agreement.

AON currently serves an expanding network of partner practices across 12 states, providing dedicated end-to-end administrative support, access to an extensive array of centralized ancillary services, and proven practice management expertise.
“This partnership with Dignitana enables us to improve the patient experience,” said AON CEO Brad Prechtl, MBA. “Our physicians are committed to providing exceptional cancer care. By being able to offer DigniCap to patients undergoing chemotherapy, we’ll be helping to diminish the added emotional burden from hair loss.”
“AON provides a unique model of physician-led community oncology that aligns well with our organizational goals,” said William Cronin, Chief Executive Officer of Dignitana AB. “Physicians know that hair loss is a significant quality of life issue and they want to provide DigniCap for their patients. This master contract expedites the administrative process so that more patients can access this life-changing therapy.”
