Digidence develops state-of-the-art software solutions for oncology practices to improve clinical trial accrual, patient outcomes and clinical workflow. Through collaborations across the United States, our products are expertly designed, scientifically tested, and fully utilized by clinicians and patients.
Nationally, only about 5% of cancer patients participate in clinical trials, with patients representing minorities participating even less. Even when eligible, nearly half of all patients decline participation when asked. The result? Slower accrual, abandonment of studies and less revenue from study sponsors.
To address this, we’ve created CareXplorer, a digital marketing campaign to activate patients into considering oncology clinical trial participation. We provide CareXplorer to oncology providers sites as a turnkey solution.
CareXplorer helps patients learn about what clinical trials are, and just as importantly, what they are NOT by reading our e-mail newsletters and engaging in other content, such as videos and fun polls.
• Activates patients to ask their care team about participating in clinical trials
• Reduces the percentage of eligible patients who decline participation when asked
• Encourages patients to obtain genomic testing, critical for nearly all oncology trials.
CarePrompter is a nurse triage platform and patient engagement tool. CarePrompter has
improved healthcare outcomes for oncology patients across the United States. Built with patients and clinicians in mind, our product enables oncology departments and
practices to provide personalized care and reduce costs through increased efficiency.
Patients download CarePrompter onto their smartphones, which enables them to:
Engage in self-care
Fill out QoL and other validated instruments
Track their health over time
Patient data can be securely transmitted to nurses who access it via the myCare Dashboard integrated into the EHR.
Practices can customize CarePrompter in many ways, including:
Question branching logic
Clinician-facing triage protocol and alerts
Any validated or custom instrument
Data analysis and machine learning
We have extensive experience in bioinformatics, including research using machine learning techniques. For example, we created a model to predict fatigue and sleeplessness in patients using a customized machine learning algorithm superior to conventional methods.
We are currently working with a large academic institution to leverage large language models to increase oncology clinical trial accrual.
Working with leading clinical collaborators, we are a group of passionate health information technology professionals who help oncology providers and trial sites improve outcomes for their patients and workflow for themselves.
