Digital cancer care platform Careology has partnered with RedArc, the provider of long-term support for people facing serious illness, disability, trauma or bereavement.
A RedArc spokesperson said that the new partnership will see Careology provide RedArc nurses with the digital tools needed to ensure each person under their care, with a cancer diagnosis, receives the “best possible personalised support”.
Using leading Bluetooth wearable and connected technology, the Careology platform allows RedArc nurses to view real-time health and wellbeing data, including a patient’s temperature, heart rate, mood, journal entries and activity levels.
The RedArc spokesperson said that access to this information is “key” to providing consistent and effective practical advice and emotional support to patients remotely.
Paul Landau, founder and CEO of Careology, said that since the Covid-19 pandemic started, our reliance on technology has “increased immeasurably as we attempt to support and connect with people in a socially distant world”.
Landau said: “Digital cancer care is crucial to better support people living and dealing with cancer. Our technology aids and enables healthcare professionals involved in the delivery of care, which is why partnerships like this are incredibly important.
“Our technology is designed to be simple yet effective for both the patient and the clinical team, offering them accessibility and support when they need it most. Our purpose is to create more up days for everyone living and dealing with cancer. We are so proud to be partnering with RedArc and expanding their range of cancer support services.”
RedArc managing director Christine Husbands (pictured) said: “We understand that everyone experiences cancer differently. Providing very personal long-term practical advice from our team of experienced nurses will always be at the heart of what we do.
“We are delighted to partner with Careology bringing together their technology solution alongside our personal nurse support. Ensuring our nurses can offer the right digital tools gives breadth and depth of support, from initial diagnosis through treatment and beyond. This powerful combination will make such a difference to the physical and emotional wellbeing of the people we look after at this vulnerable time in their lives.”
