Brief Summary:
We designed a monocenter prospective cohort study using PROM via app and remote monitoring via pho-toplethysmography (PPG). The application of these technologies enables an early detection of infections and therefore initiation of medical interventions. The study is conducted as feasibility analysis; primary endpoints are adherence (according to wearing time) and technical robustness.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Telemedicine
Telemonitoring via PPG (photoplethysmography) and PROM (patient reported outcome monitoring) via app
Device: PPG and PROM
description will follow

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Compliance [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    Compliance is defined as wearing time of the in-ear-sensor.

  2. robustness of the ppg-signal [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    number and duration of the ppg-signal transmitted

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. number of correct- and false-positive alerts [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    definition via comparison of alerts with clinical data

  2. number of contacts and hospitalization rates [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    definition via comparison of alerts and resulting contacts and hospitalization rates with clinical data

  3. infections [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    detection of infesctions via suspected ppg-signal transmitted or PRO-data. This results in blood test zu verify acute infections.

  4. therapy modifications [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    dose-reductions (%), postponing of therapy cycles (time in days between actual and plannend date), therapy discontinuation

  5. effect on quality of life [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    change in minimum 9 points in the EORTC QLQ-C30-questionnaire is evaluated as significant change. In questions 1-28: 28-112 points can be achieved: higher scores are associated with a worse outcome. In questions 29-30:2-14 points can be achieved: higher scores are associated with a better outcome.

  6. OS; PFS [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    time between study inclusion and death; time between study inclusion and proven increasing tumor mass (number of days)

  7. health-related costs [ Time Frame: 3 months ]
    cost-effectiveness analysis
