Remote Monitoring for Ambulatory Care of Elderly Patients With Cancer

Institut Bergonié

Brief Summary:

Monocentric, prospective cohort pilot study evaluating the feasibility of a online remote monitoring tool during the care of patients over 65 years of age being medically treated for cancer.

Condition or disease



Remote monitoring


Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Each patient will have to answer the remote monitoring questionnaires on a mobile phone, tablet or computer via the Internet. Responses will be sent to the referring oncologist and team (Coordinating Nurse). For each question, predetermined response thresholds have been established, triggering "orange" (to watch) or "red" alerts (intervention by the healthcare team required). In parallel, patient will continue standard follow-up with their referring oncologist and, if necessary (age ≥ 70 years and G8 score ≤ 14), will benefit from an onco-geriatric evaluation at inclusion then at 3 and 6 months. At the end of 6 months of remote monitoring, the Coordinating Nurse will inform the patient of the end of study participation. Within one month of the end of the remote monitoring, the nurse will also remove the installation of the application and will organize the return of the equipment (tablet and/or 4G LTE key (4th Generation Long Term Evaluation)) if these were lent for the study.
