Benefits of Liyfe Symptom Management

Adequate symptom management and early responsiveness to patient symptoms can prevent downstream consequences (6).
Many patients receiving treatment for advanced cancer experience symptoms, but up to half the time, these symptoms go undetected by clinicians. This inadequate symptom management has significant implications for both practices and patients. You can choose Liyfe Symptom Management to help your practice:

Reduce Costs

Optimize Patient Outcomes and Survival Rates

Enhance Quality of Life and Patient Satisfaction

Prevent Escalation of Care, including ER Visits and Hospitalizations

Support Clinical Decision

Improve Patient Retention

Limit Phone Call Interuptions

Avoid Delays in Treatment

How It Works

App Symptom Tracker
Patients will log into the HIPAA compliant Liyfe app to log and track symptoms they experience and communicate with the Care Team.
AI-based questions will guide patients on the Liyfe App to collect comprehensive symptoms information needed to best understand the situation.
Evidence-based symptoms normalization algorithm will calculate the severity of the symptoms. You either receive a note or emergency alert per your protocol.
Clinical Advice
Clinical advice can be given by clinicians on the app. Telemedicine tool is available for text or video chat.  
Accessibility via Clinic Dashboard
You can access symptom input and Q&A via the Liyfe Practice Portal. Liyfe can also integrate this information to your EHR.

Standardization Across Your Clinics

Liyfe utilizes evidence-based evaluation system to assess the risk, and highlights the information that needs your attention. It not only improves the efficiency of the clinicians, but also reduces the human error.

Regardless of your practice size, location, or patient volume, Liyfe helps you to ensure each patient receives standardized, comprehensive care.

Clinical Evidence Supporting Symptom Management

Figure 1. Patients in each category were reported if EuroQol EQ-5D index scores improved, remained unchanged, or worsened by any amount at 6 months compared with baseline. The scores changed by 6 or more points is considered clinically meaningful in US cancer populations.
In recent years, hospital space has become more limited, resulting in acute care and cancer treatments being delivered more frequently in an outpatient setting. Yet, current oncology care models cannot effectively manage patients at home. As a result, those receiving cancer care in the hospital followed by stretches at home between treatments may have side effects or other issues that send them back to the hospital for acute visits. Many of these visits could have been avoided with proactive monitoring and management.  

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) had conducted a clinical trial on remote patient symptom monitoring [1][2]. 766 patients were recruited to measure the following end points: health-related quality of life (HRQL) by the EuroQol EQ-5D index, emergency room (ER) visits, and survival probabilities.

As a summary, managing symptoms proactively through patient reported monitoring leads to enhancement quality of life, fewer ER visits, and most significantly, an improvement in overall survival.

Liyfe Patient Education

Liyfe collaborates with oncology-specific providers (oncologists, nurses, dietitians, etc) to create evidence-based patient educational resources. These resources are based on research and explain cancer-related terms and tips on how to manage symptoms. Better informed patients will feel empowered and will be more equipped to engage in their cancer journey, giving them confidence in their treatment and care team.
