Riding the Wave Through Chemo: Cancer Journey Leads to chemoWave App for Reporting PROs

Matt Lashey, MBA
"It is time for patients to have more control over what is prescribed to them and technologies like chemoWave are giving them that power." A cancer diagnosis leads to chemoWave, an app for recording patient-reported outcomes. 
chemoWave’s timely and specific data, and its system of ongoing data collection represent an underutilized trove of information not represented in the literature. Technology has revolutionized many industries, and it should be used to update patient protocols and their reactions to standardized healthcare. It is time for patients to have more control over what is prescribed to them and technologies like chemoWave are giving them that power.
