Digital Oncology Studies Using digital technology to improve treatment outcomes for cancer patients

Updated: May 18, 2022

A diverse team of healthcare professionals at the Center for Cancer Research is collaborating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and commercial partners to test the use of digital technology to facilitate symptom and functional outcome assessment, remote data acquisition, and novel therapeutic approaches in cancer trials and clinical care.

For clinical trials, digital technology may improve the quality and timeliness of information that researchers can gather from patients enrolled in our treatment trials, with less effort and inconvenience on the part of our patients.

Using these forward-thinking approaches, one day healthcare providers may be able to expand the ways symptom and functional data are collected from cancer patients with the goal to improve treatment outcomes, especially in the areas of pain management, cognitive function and stress reduction.
