care plans

Carevive Health’s Chief Clinical Officer, Carrie Stricker, PhD, CRNP, spoke at a grand rounds activity titled “Personalized Care Plans: Harnessing Technology and Patient-Reported Outcomes to Drive Quality Care Across the Cancer Continuum” hosted by the Canadian Cancer Survivorship Research Consortium (CCSR).

Cancer care is increasingly complex and fragmented. Keeping abreast of evolving evidence and resources to provide quality, evidence-based, patient-centered care is a growing challenge for oncology clinicians in resource-strapped health systems. To address these challenges in caring for the increasing number of cancer survivors across the cancer care continuum, health information technology solutions have proliferated, including electronic patient-reported outcome (ePRO) and care pathway technologies. Adoption has been slow and inconsistent.

The Carevive Care Planning System™ (CPS) is a novel supportive care planning technology developed to address these challenges by improving care processes across the care continuum. The Carevive CPS was designed by clinicians with a goal of creating a reliable, convenient, automated system that will allow cancer care teams to deliver personalized, evidence-based cancer care plans at the point of care. Utilizing ePRO and clinical data, the Carevive CPS electronically generates individualized supportive care plans that are aligned with quality care standards and current evidence. The Carevive CPS was pilot tested in two National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer centers, one community-based cancer and one comprehensive cancer center.  Feasibility, usability, acceptability, satisfaction and exploratory outcome data will be presented.

The CCSR shares updates on the latest in cancer survivorship research monthly during research rounds.
