Users get personalized educational content to share with friends and family

My Breast Cancer Journey, free app, Willowglade Technologies

April 7, 2015 — Expert data recently released has shown that patients’ knowledge about their own breast cancer was generally poor, particularly for minority women. “My Breast Cancer Journey” a free app and part of the Cancer Journey App solution series created by Willowglade Technologies, has been specifically designed to help patients obtain information, manage and communicate about their cancer as well as handle the emotional, social and clinical aspects of their diagnosis.

Results of the survey conducted by a leading cancer institute in Boston demonstrates a clear lack of understanding on the part of many patients about their cancers. The research team concluded that there is an identified and critical need for improved patient education and provider awareness.  The survey was conducted among 500 women with breast cancer. Their interest was in seeing how knowledgeable women were about their own cancers.

My Breast Cancer Journey, a part of the Cancer Journey Apps series of apps, provides educational content to breast cancer patients that is personalized to the individuals’ diagnosis, treatment and clinical and emotional status. Using patented algorithms, new content is provided throughout the journey so the patient has access to the right content at the right time.

Patients can also engage with invited friends and family to create a private social network, where the patient can share their personalized educational content, discuss the content, have one-on-one conversations and engage in group discussions. Public support networks are also available in the app.

Patients can also record and graph medical tests, and record non-cancer conditions that allow the creation of a comprehensive clinical picture of the patient.

Cancer Journey Supporter is a companion app for other Cancer Journey Apps. Once a supporter receives an invitation from a cancer patient using My Breast Cancer Journey, the supporter app allows the loved one to review educational content that has been shared with them. They can also participate in a private social network as well as conversations about the content with the patient and other supporters invited to review the content.

The Cancer Journey Apps solutions are now available for iPad, iPhone and Android Devices.
