Netherlands-based Haga Teaching Hospital partners with physIQ and VitalConnect to continuously monitor cancer patients during treatment

THE HAGUE, Netherlands & CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Haga Teaching Hospital, physIQ, and VitalConnect announced today that cancer patients are being enrolled and monitored in a study that is evaluating how wearable biosensors and artificial intelligence-based analytics can augment clinical care for patients in treatment. The study is being funded by Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a Johnson & Johnson Company). In the investigator-initiated study, patients being treated with either erythrocyte transfusion or chemotherapy, either with or without immunotherapy, are provided VitalPatch® biosensors that collect and stream physiological data via physIQ’s pinpointIQTM platform. The goal of the study is to evaluate how continuous physiological data coupled with sophisticated personalized analytics can provide early clinical indication of adverse events sometimes associated with anti-cancer treatment.
