aiming to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors through Artificial Intelligence and Big Data technologies
The PERSIST Project is addressing patients who have survived colorectal and breast cancer. The PERSIST consortium aims to improve the quality of life for cancer survivors through Artificial Intelligence and Big Data technologies.
In care for the patients, PERSIST enables a completer and more frequent update of the survivorship care plans, based on data, which is processed in real-time. This new knowledge (based on wellbeing, biomarkers, health, and social factors) gives a better insight of the individual needs and long-term side effects of the cancer treatment. The team behind PERSIST will gather this information from 160 colorectal and breast cancer survivors throughout the duration of the project.
PERSIST will then use the data, gathered from patients, to create a fully functioning mHealth application. The mHealth application will provide medical specialists and contribute towards delivering better knowledge for improved patient counselling, as well as improvement in patients’ follow-up treatment. PERSIST will contribute to create entirely new knowledge and understanding on how patient behaviors and various patient-specific co-morbidities may influence health outcomes. This knowledge will contribute towards:
- Improving the forecast of their illness; and
- Facilitating timely medical interventions.
