The program features Care Messages, which are sent directly to the patients’ mobile device. There are two Care Message tracks:
Patients receive two messages per week containing lifestyle tips, insights, and supportive information about living with cancer and going through treatment. Periodically, patients are prompted to access additional information within the Care Companion™
How Are You Doing?
One day after beginning treatment, patients receive a Care Message, prompting them to take the How Are You Doing? survey, allowing patients to report on the personal, physical and emotional challenges they are experiencing. Subsequently, the patients will receive a weekly one-question Care Message asking how they are doing on a scale of 1-10. If their response is a 4 or higher, indicating distress, they are prompted to take the How Are You Doing? survey again.
