SYMPTOMCARE

SymptomCare uses patient reported outcomes to monitor patient symptoms resulting from chemotherapy at home. Users can report the presence and severity of symptoms using push button telephones. The system presents patients with a series of questions designed to determine patient condition and family wellbeing. Based on patient reported symptoms, the system generates suggestions in real time to help alleviate patient pain and discomfort. It automatically sends a warning alert to the care team when symptom severity reaches a predetermined threshold, which prompts the team to make direct contact with the patient. This enables care providers to improve the patient experience and outcomes by tracking patient symptoms outside of the clinic or hospital and responding with care suggestions. By providing updates on patient symptoms in real time, the system also functions as a case management portal for clinicians.
