Electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePROs) are important quality measures which can also improve oncology care by expanding patient-centered care and increasing the ability for quick reporting, technology assisted triage, and symptom prioritization and management. What’s more, ePROs and remote symptom monitoring initiatives are becoming increasingly critical components in existing and anticipated alternative payment models (e.g., Oncology Care First). This webinar will provide the foundational elements related to electronic patient-reported outcomes and remote patient monitoring for oncology practices and programs that are preparing to implement—or sustain—value-based care payment models.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe evidence behind ePROs and digital symptom monitoring in improving healthcare outcomes.
  • Discuss strategies for integrating ePRO collection and digital symptom monitoring into practice. 
  • Explain implications for ePROs and digital symptom monitoring within alternative payment models.

Dr. Ethan Basch is Physician-in-Chief of the North Carolina Cancer Hospital and Chief of Oncology at the University of North Carolina, where he is the Richard M. Goldberg Distinguished Professor in Medical Oncology and Professor of Health Policy & Management. He has devoted his career to bringing the patient voice into cancer care delivery and drug development processes. His research group established that up to half of patients’ symptomatic adverse events go undetected in clinical trials, and that patient-reported outcome questionnaires substantially improve detection. His team determined that integrating web-based patient-reported symptoms into oncology clinical practice improves clinical outcomes, including survival, and reduces health service utilization. His group created a system for the National Cancer Institute to collect patient-reported AEs during cancer trials called the ‘PRO-CTCAE.’ Dr. Basch is involved in efforts to bring PROs into comparative effectiveness research, routine care, and quality improvement. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), an Associate Editor at JAMA, and a prior member of the Board of Scientific Advisors for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Methodology Committee of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
