The Quality of Life Clinical Trial: The Big Picture Goal
The clinical trial will provide deep insights into how social support, Patient Reported Outcome (PRO) symptom data collection and other factors can impact patient outcomes.
The study piggybacks on mounting research evidence (including prior research at Memorial Sloan Kettering) which indicates that patients' quality of life may improve (by up to 36%) when patients share their moods (and get social support from family, friends and fellow patients) and, most important, share their symptom data with care teams.
The Quality of Life Study #2 - Expanded Use of CancerLife by Cancer Survivors and Patients. (Currently Recruiting Patients)
Approximately 2000 participants ( survivors and patients) will be recruited to participate in the study. Participants will use the CancerLife App for social sharing purposes and to collect PRO symptom data. Participants will take a series Quality of Life surveys, which will be tracked and monitored over a five-month period.
Additionally, IBM Watson AI technology will analyze social sharing data and conversations using its proprietary machine learning and natural language processing algorithms. IBM Watson will help uncover key insights into participants cancer journeys.
CancerLife's Commitment to the World
Understanding the correlation and implications on how social sharing and PRO data affect patients quality of life has breakthough potential as it may help doctors better understand how the next wave of cancer drugs will impact patients' quality of life.
