Digital symptom management is shown to improve patients’ overall survival and quality of life.

Kaiku’s unique algorithms screen symptoms, alert care team and provide support for cancer patients. This along with the capture and analysis of real world data paves way for more personalised and value-based healthcare.

How it works

Kaiku Health is a digital health intervention platform for cancer clinics

Cancer immunotherapies

Modules for managing immune-related adverse events

There’s still limited knowledge on adverse events when treating patients with cancer immunotherapies. These adverse events may include the body’s own immune system attacking healthy tissues. We are actively working with leading centers in order to better understand and manage toxicities of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor and CAR T Cell therapies.

Scientific evidence

Impact of digital patient monitoring

Overall survival

Studies show increased overall survival with patient-reported symptom monitoring compared to usual care.

A randomised controlled trial with 766 metastatic cancer patients shows that digital symptom monitoring during chemotherapy helps patients live longer (5.2 months longer median overall survival), improves quality of life (31% of patients), and reduces hospitalisation (4%) and ER visits (7%). (Basch & al. 2016–2017).
