LifeChamps provides an advanced analytics framework for Quality of Life support to cancer patients during and after their treatments. This framework aims to provide timely, accurate and multi-dimensional clinical decision support at the point of care. It will employ advanced AI techniques and a combination of cloud and edge-based processing.

Actions and Results
The LifeChamps project targets recovering older (pre-frail and frail) cancer patients, but also caregivers and multidisciplinary health professionals with a comprehensive solution capable of offering tools and mechanisms to promote patients’ empowerment and improved quality of life via timely and more accurate clinical decision support at the point of care. As such, we propose a structured solution based on a scalable predictive engine in which we determine which features affect the oncological patient’s quality of life the most, during and after the treatment. These results will then be used to feed a recommender system, offering personalized healthcare services such as symptom monitoring, treatment and rehabilitation. A multi-factorial frailty model will allow to stratify sub-clinical frail groups of geriatric cancer patients towards more personalized treatment.
