Kaiku Health helps cancer patients record symptom changes and immediately relays that information to the medical team. Constant monitoring improves the patient’s quality of life through early intervention and symptom management.
For cancer patients, frequent communication with their healthcare team is important for monitoring changes in their health. However, waiting for appointments to report health changes and symptoms means doctors can’t always adjust treatments as fast as necessary. A study in 2017 found that patient-reported symptom monitoring in patients undergoing chemo improved quality of life by 31% and added 5.2 months to the median survival.
Kaiku Health is keeping cancer patients and their medical teams in constant contact through their patient-reported symptom monitoring platform. Kaiku has patients fill out a symptom questionnaire based on the treatments they are receiving. An AI-powered algorithm analyses the responses and provides feedback and advice for mild symptoms.
Patients can report symptoms outside of the questionnaire and submit helpful information for monitoring, such as photos of a skin rash. All information is delivered straight to the patient’s medical team, who also receive alerts if Kaiku believes a change needs immediate attention.
Through closer and regular monitoring, care teams can provide early intervention and symptom management quickly for an improved quality of life.
