Team Monitoring

In this cohort, the electronic system will provide advanced informatics support for push notifications to the care team based on the severity of the symptoms reported. This platform promotes early detection and intervention. The care team is alerted when patients experience symptoms out of the expected range or if symptoms are worsening. Nurses receive secure message notifications and will contact the patient by phone depending on symptom severity. If a patient responds with a moderate-severe an ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org

Enhanced Feedback

In this cohort, the electronic system will provide tailored normative data visualizations that offer context and education to patients regarding expected symptom severity. The information provided to patients in the Enhanced Feedback group will be procedure specific and based on continuously updated PRO-CTCAE data from previous patients. Patients are thus able to see their own recovery trajectory relative to that of patients who have undergone the same procedure. Care is patient activated in tha ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
