The challenge

In the UK, prostate cancer in 2020 was identified as the most common cancer, and the second commonest cause of male cancer death. Nearly 50,000 men develop prostate cancer each year in the UK; with nearly 12,000 men dying from the disease. New treatments and care models have improved survival rates, but require complex treatment pathways and use supportive care delivered across hospital networks. This places a burden on patients, their carers and the healthcare system.

Clinical nurse specialists have an increased workload trying to organise cancer care across different hospitals, leaving less time to fulfil their role in supporting patients’ complex needs.

The configurable platform allows patients to be managed in different ways based on their diagnosis and treatment programme.

Features of the clinician portal include:

  • Messaging
  • Patient reported outcomes; FACIT-Fatigue, GAD-7 & PHQ-8 or PHQ-9, ICIQ-UI, SHIM

We’re here to help

Most platforms don’t allow you to personalise your treatment pathways the way we do. Clinics are able to create their own unique pathways, selecting the most suitable components for each patient at every stage of their treatment. 

We’re here to make sure you get the most out of the platform. We will provide training for your full team and help you to get up and running. We provide regular evaluations and unlimited ongoing support.
