Canadian Cancer Project

Ontario Cancer Research Institute LogoCentre for Data Analytics and Cognition (CDAC) at La Trobe University has teamed up with University of Toronto Logointernational cancer researchers at the  Ontario Cancer Research Institute and University of Toronto to create the Patient-Reported Information Multidimensional Framework (PRIME) for detection and analysis of patient behaviours, clinical factors, decision-making and deep emotions when dealing with cancer.

Using new AI algorithms and natural language processing (NLP) techniques to make sense of vast quantities of information, PRIME can better understand a patient’s mental health status based entirely on the data shared by the patient providing deeper insights into patient emotions, needs and expectations during their cancer journey.
