Cancer Concierge for Navigators
While many patients will stop thinking about screening and prevention as soon as they walk out the clinic door, "Cancer Concierge" helps patients stay engaged over a sustained period of time by using reminders, progress reports, and personalized educational information. Vignet Inc., a Virginia based company, and The University of Virginia Cancer Center have collaborated to create the "Cancer Concierge" solution for iOS devices. The iPhone solution is for patients and the iPad solution is for patient navigators, nurse navigators, community workers, and policy makers. Both solutions are tools that create highly personalized schedule cancer screening recommendations, help patients to schedule, complete and track the results of their screenings and present easily accessible information about how to identify cancer risk factors, how to lower your risk for cancer, the importance of early detection of cancer. The solution is convenient for all and is based on trusted sources of data such as the American Cancer Society.
