Oncology departments and practices don’t have time or resources to help patients at home. When patients need help they may or may not call the practice and even if they do, they play telephone tag with their clinician or don’t even get through in the first place. Poor communication results in expensive visits to the local emergency room with the majority of patients requiring hospitalization. This lack of communication results in patients maintaining a lower quality of life, while also not recovering from their cancer related treatments as quickly.
Through our engagement with oncology professionals across the United States, many have identified the following four areas as major problems facing top oncology facilities:
- Inconsistent and inefficient communication between patients and clinicians
- Limited practice and clinician resources
- Lack of personalized care for patients
- Rising costs for hospitals and practices
CarePrompter is an efficient and effective nurse triage and patient engagement platform. Funded in part by the National Science Foundation, CarePrompter has improved healthcare outcomes for oncology patients across the United States. Built with patients and clinicians in mind, our product enables oncology departments and practices to provide personalized care and reduced costs through increased efficiency.
Patients simply input their symptoms into the user-friendly CarePrompter platform, which immediately notifies their care team of any issues they may be experiencing. Through our platform, our clinicians can easily manage entire populations of patients at an individual or population level. At either level, they can access granule data about the patient and intervene accordingly. Additionally, CarePrompter empowers patients to learn more about their side effects and take greater responsibility for their own care. Many studies have shown that patients who help themselves tend to improve their own health outcomes.
