Join us for a unique conversation with Dr. Ethan Basch, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill hosted by Carevive’s Dr. Carrie Stricker.
This is great opportunity to listen to Dr. Ethan Basch elaborate on his study findings, including core symptom intervention components.
Learn how proactively monitoring patient symptoms with the use of ePRO tools can improve clinical outcomes through care team collaboration and early interventions for symptom control.
Then we will transition to a Q/A session with participants and guided discussions with Dr. Basch and Dr. Stricker.
Patient-reported outcomes (PROs) are reflections of how patients feel and function, and are measured via questionnaires. Electronic “ePRO” software enables patients to self-report via the Internet, automated telephone systems, or downloadable applications. New data show the powerful impact that proactive symptom monitoring with ePRO’s has on patient care and outcomes in individuals with advanced cancer.
At the ASCO 2017 Annual Meeting Plenary Session in Chicago – the world’s largest oncology meeting – just last month, Dr. Ethan Basch of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill presented results that have been referred to as “the tipping point” for integrating proactive symptom surveillance into routine cancer care. Patients who regularly reported their symptoms via an ePRO technology solution that ensured proactive symptom monitoring by clinicians survived for more than five months longer than those who did not. This game-changing outcome added to earlier results showing a reduction in ED visits as well as improved quality of life and time on treatment with proactive ePRO symptom monitoring by patients, combined with alerts to clinicians when symptoms worsened or were clinically significant.
In this webinar, Dr. Ethan Basch will elaborate on his study findings, including core symptom intervention components, and will discuss how proactively monitoring patient symptoms with the use of ePRO tools can improve clinical outcomes through care team collaboration and early interventions for symptom control. Evolving best practices for ePRO implementation will also be discussed, so as to facilitate translation of this high value intervention to practice.
5 Reasons To Attend This Webinar:
- Learn how to evolve symptom monitoring approaches at your institution from reactive to PROACTIVE
- Improve patient symptom management, quality of life, and disease outcomes
- Improve your practice’s quality of care and provider outcomes, including reductions in unnecessary healthcare utilization such as ED visits
- Learn how to increase care team collaboration and interactions with proactive symptom monitoring
- Discuss and prepare to translate lessons learned in the delivery of patient-centered, value-based cancer care, including strategies to maximize reimbursement, manage resources and IT challenges, and overcome barriers to integrating proactive symptom monitoring and other high value supportive care interventions into practice
