Today’s challenges in chemotherapy

Adverse events

Over 16% of patients are hospitalised due to adverse events, such as infections as a side effect of the therapy.

Treatment scheduling

Many patients have not recovered enough to receive the next part of the treatment

We see approximately 50-60 patients a week who are admitted non electively with a recorded diagnosis of cancer. The annual cost of these admissions in 2014-15 was more than £12 million and the Income that we received was less than £10 million. This impacts on the flow of elective patients (mostly surgical) and further reduces our Income”

Remote patient monitoring

Qualified for self-test
The Minicare Home monitoring service has been designed to be intuitive and easy to use for your patients. Care is taken to ensure that the patient is properly trained and is able to perform the finger-prick test, temperature reading and health questionnaire.

Timely warnings on adverse events
In-between chemotherapy cycles it is often a challenge to assess the patient’s condition. Patients can find it difficult to separate the expected side-effects of the chemotherapy treatment from any serious adverse events. The patient’s self-test information ensures that key symptoms are not being missed and enables you to intervene in a timely manner if complications arise.
