In what is known as the SIMPRO project, researchers from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and their colleagues from across the U.S. will partner with Epic Systems to test how patient-reported outcomes (PROs) can be used in the EHR to improve cancer care. Together, they will develop an app, eSyM, that will collect and integrate electronic patient reported outcomes (ePROs) into the EHR. This will enable healthcare practitioners to track their patients’ symptoms after surgery or chemotherapy, allowing for a better connection with them post-treatment, especially with those living in distant areas. In addition, the researchers are hoping to investigate whether this remote monitoring will reduce visits to the ER and urgent hospitalizations.

DADOS can collect ePROs, allowing you to assess your patients’ progress on a variety of aspects of their health.
