Telemedicine; Translational Medical Research
Over the past 5 years (2014-2019) we have conducted a telemedical study by using the Advanced Symptom Management System (ASyMS) at 12 clinical sites in 5 european countries. ASyMS is a mobile phone based remote monitoring system and enables real time monitoring of patient symptoms during chemotherapy. We tested the short and long-term effects of the ASyMS intervention of patients with breast, colorectal or hematological cancers (Hodgkin´s disease or non-Hodgkin lymphoma). Additionally we developed Predictive Risk Models to predict chemotherapy-related toxicity.
The start of the first virtual outpatient clinic at MedUni Vienna is planned for the second quarter of 2020.
