Integrating patient-reported outcomes (PROs) into clinical practice is an increasingly promising strategy for improving patient engagement, symptom control, and clinical outcomes, including reducing avoidable hospitalizations and emergency room visits. Furthermore, recent data also shows that PRO-based proactive symptom monitoring may increase cancer patient survival. Now is the time to engage in discussions on practical applications of ePRO and finding the right balance of people, process, and technology.
How to implement an ePRO strategy into routine practice of oncology providers?
Will the data and process feed into the EHR and current clinical workflow?
What are the desired clinical outcomes and financial outcomes?
In this webinar, you will hear from a panel of experts discuss:
Latest ePRO study data
Lessons learned from ePRO studies in oncology
Implementation science for ePROs
How a cancer center is innovating in their approach to proactive symptom monitoring
How Carevive technology can facilitate capturing ePROs by monitoring the symptoms patients experience and alerting providers when interventions are necessary for at-risk patients
