Evidencio - cancer
You probably have a lot of questions about your treatment. These questions are often answered based on expectations and averages, but you would probably prefer to know what the predictions are for your individual situation.
Evidencio provides support for making well-informed decisions
Evidencio is an online platform that provides accurate predictions for healthcare professionals and patients. Evidencio asks the healthcare provider for specific patient attributes and, based on these, provides a prediction for your personal situation, such as how likely it is that you will experience side effects or what the additional survival advantages are when you begin a supplementary treatment for breast cancer.
What does this mean for me as a patient?
What is the chance of loss of appetite during my treatment? How likely is the operation to succeed? What is the chance that my illness will return after treatment? Does it make sense to perform additional tests? These are just a few of the many questions you may have as a patient. With these kinds of questions, general predictions and averages for large groups of patients are not very helpful for you and that is why Evidencio gives you an answer based on your specific situation. After all, every patient is unique.
Many estimates and expectations during the course of your illness are based on averages. But you are not average. Science is becoming progressively better equipped to develop formulas that address your personal situation thanks to innovative statistics. In this way, Evidencio can support you and your healthcare provider in making well-informed decisions.
What does this mean for me as a healthcare professional?
Evidencio supports you in making treatment decisions based on patient-specific approximations. In the pursuit of personalised healthcare, it is more appropriate to determine the risk of complications based on patient-specific information rather than general figures. By utilising Evidencio, you do not need to stay up-to-date with all the literature regarding prediction models in your field. Evidencio translates the science and formulas into practical information. This makes it easy to always use the model best suited to the situation. Evidencio is an interactive platform, with which you can validate models on your own for your local environment. Furthermore, you can provide models to your colleagues for use via the platform.
Brightingale has partnered with Evidencio on the Evidencio platform. This provides you with the option to integrate with your EHR, which gives you easier access to the models, completes certain variables automatically, and simplifies the documentation process. Over time, certain variables can be automatically filled in, which further decreases the effort involved in keeping records.
The status of Evidencio
More and more models are being added to the Evidencio platform. It currently contains models for illnesses such as breast, colon, and prostate cancer. The collection of models is progressively being expanded.
