Impact of Partnership with Carevive

January 1, 2023

Carrie Wines-Larch, a nurse navigator and survivorship coordinator, shares the challenges faced in the infusion clinic at the Cancer Center at Charleston Area Medical Center. Patients arriving unprepared for treatment due to scheduling difficulties and delayed referrals prompted the need for a solution. The implementation of Carevive’s clinic allowed for a pre-infusion check to ensure services were completed or scheduled. This streamlined the process, benefiting both the department and the community. Lori Russell, another nurse navigator, highlights the significance of Carevive in tracking patient symptoms and enabling timely communication for effective care. Kara Smith, a breast nurse navigator, shares her positive experience with the Carevive app. The weekly check-ins provided her with valuable support, while patients felt more connected and cared for. Overall, Carevive’s platform has improved cancer care, fostering better communication, and facilitating efficient workflows.
