A groundbreaking study by Carevive sheds light on the immense potential of Carevive SMART Data in transforming cancer care, even amidst a global pandemic. Enrolling 282 patients, the study achieved an impressive 88% survey completion rate, revealing vital patient insights.

Results indicated that patients reported severe symptoms 54% of the time. However, with the support of their care teams, these symptoms were effectively managed through self-management instructions and timely phone calls, leading to a decrease in symptom severity.

The study showcased the feasibility and acceptance of collecting Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) during challenging times. Validated instruments played a crucial role in improving and benchmarking patient outcomes.

Together, let’s build a brighter future for cancer management and patient well-being.
