Patients using the Careology app allows clinicians, oncology nurses and carers to remotely monitor individuals undergoing treatment at home, granting access to their symptoms, side effects, whether are taking medication correctly, and other biometrics.
This cancer care technology is the first of its kind in the UK.
‘We believe that having chemotherapy, delivered one-on-one by an experienced nurse in the comfort of your own home, coupled with the enhanced care and safety the platform provides, would make such a difference to our patients’ lives,’ said Joanne Upton, deputy head of nursing of LloydsPharmacy Clinical Homecare.
Paul Landau, founder and CEO of Careology, added: ‘Technology has a crucial role to play in helping healthcare providers deliver effective, scalable cancer care, whilst enhancing patient safety and improving the patient experience.
‘Having instant access to this in depth, real-time information will provide consultants with greater confidence when referring their patients to receive treatment at home and outside of a hospital setting.’
Careology entered a similar partnership in January with RedArc to provide its nurses with digital tools to support patients with a cancer diagnosis.
