It is calming to know that I can contact the professionals at my clinic at any time and that the state of my health is being monitored continuously.
Digital symptom monitoring can improve patients’ overall survival and quality of life.
Better patient experience
Accounting for patient experience is essential to providing top quality cancer care. 35% of cancer patients experience psychological distress, such as depression or anxiety, in addition to physical symptoms (Zabora & al. 2001). Recent evidence shows that digital symptom monitoring can help metastatic cancer patients live longer (5.2 months longer median overall survival) and improve quality of life (31% of patients). (Basch & al. 2017).
Kaiku Health enables consistent symptoms and quality of life follow-up. Enabling patients to report their health at any given moment not only helps alleviate stress, but also ensures that the care team is always up-to-date on patients’ condition and can react to alarming symptoms early on. 95% of our patient users find that Kaiku Health supports their cancer treatment and recovery.
Increased vigilance and clinical efficiency
Kaiku Health decreases manual work related to patient monitoring. Hospitals have seen a 75% reduction in patient calls among patients using Kaiku Health. Patient-reported data increases the efficiency of clinical visits as the staff is well informed on the patient’s condition upon arrival. Digital patient monitoring can also reduce emergency room admissions by 5-10% (Basch & al. 2016).
Real-world data on the efficacy of therapies
Patient-reported information combined with clinical data opens significant new opportunities for evaluating the efficiency of treatments and their long-term outcomes, and thus enables the development of new, better targeted ways to treat cancer. Hospitals using Kaiku Health have seen a tenfold increase of outcome data points, enabling better analysis of care outcomes and international benchmarking.
