Digital Solutions In Cancer Care: Part Two

Oct 29, 2021

| Membership (fee-based) getty Elaboration of effective methods of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cancer is an evolving challenge for modern healthcare leaders. In the previous article , I reviewed some opportunities for improved diagnostics and early detection of cancer through digital technologies. Let’s discuss the role of software in other fields of cancer care and how this impacts the growth of companies working to apply more technology to this segment of healthcare. Innovative Blood Tests Blood tests for tumor markers are a common method of cancer screening. The liquid biopsy is a revolutionary AI-augmented blood test looking for cells shedding from a tumor into the bloodstream and/or circulating pieces of tumor cells’ DNA. The business opportunity here is to build highly accurate multi-cancer early detection blood tests aimed to reveal tumor cell-free DNA (cfDNA). It could revolutionize cancer screening, and a good example in this area are such companies as Grail and Freenome (both U.S.-based) with a total investment of $2 billion and $507.6 million, respectively. They both use AI and machine learning to analyze data from cell-free DNA in a patient’s blood. Non-Radiology Imaging Diagnostics The idea of using a smartphone camera as a diagnostic tool for skin cancer is not new, but despite the existence of numerous algorithm-based photo-processing apps for diagnosing melanoma and other types of skin cancer, an acceptable level of sensitivity and specificity is not yet achieved . Hence this work continues. Among interesting solutions in the field, I find it worth mentioning SkinIO, a U.S.-based company working on a software for clinical-grade full-body skin photography with subsequent AI analysis of cancer-suspicious skin lesions. AI Talos, based in Turkey, developed AI algorithms for analyzing infrared thermal imaging of breasts — a harmless tool for breast cancer screening and women’s health monitoring. MORE FOR YOU Personalized Care  According to the U.S. National Cancer Policy Forum, delivery of the right treatment to the right patient at the right time is a hallmark of high-quality cancer care. Immunotherapy is highly effective and has a small number of adverse effects but only in patients with certain individual predispositions , and this is where IT solutions can help. Processing CT scan data with AI algorithms helps to identify groups of patients who would benefit most from immunotherapy, contributing also to the effective use of expensive healthcare resources. Technologies with embedded AI can personalize highly toxic radiation therapy. For example, a computer model makes it possible to decrease the likelihood of side effects. Healthcare providers can use machine learning in combination with a cancer patient’s medical scans, lab tests and EHR data for generating a safer radiotherapy regimen. In my opinion, tech companies can leverage AI to predict the risk and outcomes of certain events in the cancer course such as readmission, recurrent oncology, treatment response rate, drugs’ toxicity, and mortality. Integrating various clinical data with further AI processing is a promising way to improve cancer care. Challenges to be solved along this way are the representativeness of databases for training AI, as well as heterogeneity and interoperability of data, which is a challenging task even for giants like IBM. Enhancement Of Clinical Trials If all clinically available cancer treatment options are exhausted, patients strive to find experimental therapies which are currently under clinical trials. This is where digital health startups can also help with the extraction of EHR data for further analysis as well as building AI-powered tools for future clinical trials, prescreening of participants, enrollment and feasibility assessments. AI-powered decision support tools ensure smoother access to the clinical trial search and enrollment, and companies like TrialJectory progress in this area. Patient Support And Monitoring  An example of an advanced system for remote patient monitoring and supportive care is the NIH-funded CYCORE (Cyberinfrastructure for Comparative Effectiveness Research) developed at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center together with the Universities of San Diego and Alabama. The aim is to smooth data exchange between cancer patients’ wearables as well as sensors at their homes, healthcare providers and researchers to facilitate clinical trials and drug discoveries. Digital solutions for supporting cancer patients are developed by other leading universities and clinics around the world. The Distress Assessment and Response Tool, or DART (Canada), makes patient-centered standardized validated measurements of physical distress, anxiety, depression and social difficulty. The British NHS-recognized startup Vine Health (investments of 1.2 million pounds) is supplying healthcare providers with intelligent digital technologies for highly personalized patient support programs by using a combination of behavioral science and AI. It is shown that patient portals and apps play a significant role in promoting self-management and increase the longevity of cancer fighters. An example of an effective digital solution is a web-based symptom monitoring tool from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in the U.S., which helps chemotherapy patients to survive longer. Leading pharmaceutical companies can make an impact on building comprehensive symptom self-management platforms, driven by evidence-based cancer management algorithms. Startups can also play a role. Health Care Originals in the U.S. produces a flexible patch-like wearable device applied to a patient’s chest to track coughs, respiratory patterns, wheezing, heart rate, skin temperature and more. The solution is intended for pulmonary patients, including cancer ones, and has already proven effective in predicting COPD exacerbations. Conclusion Not all technologies in cancer care are progressing equally. According to this recent review , the most developed are AI-based imaging analysis followed by predictive analytics and treatment planning, highlighting the area of future research and development. Cancer care remains one of the most sought-after and investment-attractive areas for health tech. Currently, joint efforts of physicians, research institutions, government agencies and private businesses are concentrated in various fields of cancer care, primarily in AI-backed genetic research, diagnostics, advanced cancer therapy and personalized care. The heterogeneity of the disease and the versatility of care open significant opportunities for health tech companies to contribute to better health and longer life of cancer patients.
