Lung Cancer Clinical Trial
Remote Monitoring of Lung Cancer Patient-Reported Outcomes Using Moovcare®
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate how Moovcare®, a mobile medical application, can be used to monitor Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs) related to cancer treatment, cancer complications, and cancer relapse in patients with lung cancer. PROs are symptoms directly reported by patients through the completion of a survey. Up to 50 patients undergoing treatment and/or surveillance for new or existing diagnoses of lung cancer at the University of North Carolina's Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center will be prospectively enrolled to the use of the mobile medical application Moovcare® for 6 months. Moovcare® is not FDA approved, and its role in improving clinical care is being studied through this research. Moovcare® automatically delivers electronic patient reported outcome (ePRO) surveys on common symptoms experienced by lung cancer patients.
This is a single site nonrandomized feasibility study of approximately 50 participants on treatment and/or surveillance for new or existing diagnoses of lung cancer who will be assigned to a single-arm involving monitoring of their patient-reported outcomes using a mobile medical application. The study procedures include monitoring of patient symptoms using automated weekly PRO surveys delivered by Moovcare® and assessment of outcomes including quality of life at baseline and at monthly intervals, as well as patient satisfaction at 6 months. The clinical care team will receive an alert if the PRO survey suggests increased or worsening symptoms. The care team will follow their usual protocols for the management of symptoms. The patient clinical information will also be abstracted from the medical record to assess clinical outcomes. The provider's satisfaction survey will be assessed via surveys.
18 years or older
Diagnosis of lung cancer (any histology, any stage) undergoing outpatient treatment and/or surveillance/monitoring at UNC.
This may include stage I and II patients who have completed lung resection and/or are undergoing radiation, stage II and III patients receiving neoadjuvant, adjuvant, or definitive chemotherapy, stage IV patients undergoing active therapy or monitoring, patients undergoing surveillance for treated or untreated stage I-III lung cancer, and both limited and extensive small cell lung cancer. The study team will request the confirmation of the lung cancer diagnosis from the managing clinician. Patients can be enrolled at any point in their lung cancer treatment trajectory (i.e., not just at initiation of first-line treatment) after a diagnosis of lung cancer has been assigned by the treating clinician. This may include patients assigned a diagnosis of lung cancer without a tissue diagnosis.
