The goal is that the digital therapeutic, once researched and developed, would provide patients access to a mobile app that would support treatment and track symptoms. The app will be developed to embed evidence-based algorithms intended to provide patients with real-time recommendations for self-management of symptoms related to their therapy. The parties will also investigate how the solution could enable patients to more effectively communicate with their health care providers, capture and track symptoms, and receive a personalized supportive care plan.
Paul von Autenried, Chief Information Officer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, said, "This collaboration with Voluntis is an example of our commitment to advance patient care with digital solutions. By developing new technology and patient-centered initiatives such as these, we hope to advance the standards of clinical practice."
