Carevive SMART Data – EXPLORE
We recently conducted a captivating webinar shedding light on Carevive Smart Data and its transformative data journey from discovery to insights. Today, I’m thrilled to share the key takeaways from the first step of our journey – exploring the importance of measuring patient experience.
During the webinar, Dr. Ethan Basch presented four compelling factors that make collecting patient experience data both feasible and valuable. First, it was revealed that clinicians might be unaware of up to half of the symptoms experienced by patients. To address this gap in knowledge, systematic symptom monitoring through patient-reported outcomes tools becomes crucial, forming the second factor.
The third factor highlighted the willingness and ability of patients to report their symptoms and other essential experience-related data. This active patient engagement plays a pivotal role in providing comprehensive insights into their health journey. Lastly, the webinar emphasized that clinicians wholeheartedly trust patient-reported information, relying on it to make actionable decisions about their patients’ care.
Building on these valuable insights, Carevive has developed an innovative digital platform aimed at collecting patient experience data from cancer centers across the United States. Through this platform, we endeavor to empower both patients and clinicians by fostering better communication and personalized care.
