The aim of this study is to understand and improve the experience of patients after surgery by comparing two methods of following symptoms while the patient recovers at home.
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.

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
