DADOS platform is a web-based application for electronically collecting and managing data related to treatment outcomes. The clean and intuitive interface allows clinics to collect data from their patients within a clinic setting. The flexible administrative backend of the platform gives users complete control over subject information and collection schedules and also includes useful reporting and tracking tools. DADOS is an intuitive yet flexible solution that gives both research teams and clinicians what they want while providing a perfect balance between high regulatory compliance and the best of breed functionality.
The application was initially implemented within various clinics and programs at the University Health Network in Canada. Designed to handle prospective clinical research and patient-reported outcomes, the DADOS Platform is developed, maintained and supported by the Electronic Data Capture Program at the Techna Institute.
DADOS is currently used in clinical and research practices linked to prostate cancer treatment at UHN. It is being used as an essential tool to digitally monitor a patient’s health-related quality of life (HRQOL). To monitor patient HRQOL regularly and continually, prostate cancer treatment and follow-up health care clinics require a practical and systematic process of data capture and analysis. DADOS eliminates the traditional paper questionnaire format for data capture, which for many reasons is problematic for both the clinicians and researchers.

Osteoporosis at UHN leads the research to diagnose the condition as early as possible, track the progress accurately, and optimize the treatment procedures.
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.
A study presented by Dr Fabrice Denis, radiation oncologist of Institut Inter-Regional de Cancérologie Jean-Bernard, France, at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting highlighted the impact of electronic patient-reported outcomes (PROs) on the survival of lung cancer patients.
In a current trial, the primary outcome for the experimental group was the overall survival. Dr. Denis relates this improvement to an “earlier detection of symptoms and relapses, prompting earlier treatment and supportive care.” Read the full article to learn what software Dr. Denis and his team used to collect patient-reported outcomes in this study.
Among other specialties, DADOS provides solutions to measure patients’ health-related quality of life (HRQOL) scores for prostate cancer.
Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) are an important factor in assessing disease burden and identifying the adverse events of treatments.
With healthcare moving towards the value-based model, more practitioners are using patient-reported outcomes (PROs) to document their patients’ quality of life. Based on a survey by Health Catalyst only one in five hospitals in the U.S. use PROs consistently. Among the respondents who used patient reported outcomes to some extent were those engaged in chronic disease management, surgical interventions, post-surgical patient tracking, mental healthcare, and cancer management. Read the full article to learn how providing patients with a more active role in their care decision-making can improve their health.
However, the survey also indicated that nearly three-quarters of respondents had plans to begin using PROs. DADOS can help with these objectives, offering PROs for various specialties including orthopedics, plastic surgery, rheumatology, rehabilitation, as well as prostate and head and neck cancer. Designed with the patient in mind, DADOS guides care delivery and allows physicians to tailor treatment to the needs of each patient.
