Research and development

We believe that meticulous scientific research is a prerequisite for all health care. Kaiku Health is developed according to the principles of Evidence-Based Medicine.

A collaboration with HUH Comprehensive Cancer Center and Aalto University: How to use visualizations to communicate the risk of GIST recurrence

Online calculator visualizes the risk of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) recurrence and helps the doctors to evaluate the need for additional treatment after surgery. GIST Risk calculator is based on a research containing an international sample of 2000 diagnosed GIST-patients published in 2012 by HUCH Cancer Center and Aalto University.

ePRO-PCaRT. Electrical Patient Reported Outcome of Prostate Cancer RadioTherapy. Randomized Phase III Trial.

Electronic data capture enables the analysis of big data in order to provide personalized care for the patients. Kaiku Health application and an electronic questionnaire is used to evaluate the patient’s quality of life. Objective of the study is to compare the patient’s experience and preference regarding electronic and paper forms. Also the efficiency and costs of the data capture methods will be evaluated.

A Novel Digital Patient-Reported Outcome Platform for Head and Neck Oncology Patients

The patient’s role in toxicity reporting is increasingly acknowledged. There is also a need for developing modern communication methods between the patient and the medical personnel. Furthermore, the increasing number of head and neck cancer (HNC) patients is reflected in the volume of treatment follow-up visits, which remains a challenge for the health care. Electronic patient-reported outcome (ePRO) measures may provide a cost-efficient way to organize follow-up for cancer patients.

We have several R&D projects and trials in the pipeline.
Stay tuned.
