New App for Alberta Cancer Patients
I recently came across some information that might be important for women with ovarian cancer in Alberta. A Calgary tech start-up HAnalytics Solutions has launched a new digital tool that will help patients and their caregivers track and record their cancer journey. I know from personal experience that managing health-care data such as appointment dates, medications, treatments and side-effects can become scattered— there were times when I found it almost overwhelming. Zoelnsights is an innovative, digital app that will allow patients and their caregivers to manage this complexity of information more easily.
According to the Alberta Cancer Foundation the secure app will allow patients and caregivers to efficiently log all information related to their cancer experience, whether that’s questions, observations, photos or consultation notes. ZoeInsights can also keep track of appointments, medications, supplements and dosages in a streamlined way. Finally, patients using the app will be readily able to access searchable information on drugs and therapy as well as their personal diagnosis summary. This will enable them to actively participate in managing and coordinating interactions with their health-care teams.
