Electronic patient-reported outcomes have been gaining momentum, especially in cancer care where patients often face side effects and other barriers to care. COVID-19 may be accerlating the incorporation of ePROs into routine cancer care. The pandemic has caused cancer programs to swiftly adjust how they deliver care. In addition CMS has propsed including ePROs in the successor to OCM, the Onclogy Care First Model, and there is growing evidence to support the importance of monitoring patients between clinic visits to not only improve care, but also outcomes.
Navigating Cancer President & Founder, Gena Cook, recently co-hosted a webinar with the leading patient-reported outcomes researcher, Ethan Basch, MD, MSc to share more on this important topic. The webinar included an overview of Dr. Basch’s PRO findings as well as Navigating Cancer’s real world experience with implementing ePRO programs in cancer programs across the country. Watch it today and learn more about:
- Dr. Basch’s research on how systematic symptom monitoring with ePROs closes a gap in cancer care
- Clinician and patient feedback regarding ePROs
- The infrastructure needed to successfully implement an ePRO program
- Navigating Cancer’s ePRO tool, Health Tracker
