With the advance of smart phones, Americans have unlimited access to the Internet right at their fingertips. That power is being used for good with the launch of a number of mobile apps that can help cancer patients get info, get organized and get healthy.
Cancer Terms Pro is a useful resource for cancer patients who may be overwhelmed by the landslide of new medical terms they’re encountering. With a simple click, patients can look up and learn about oncological terms and phrases, giving them the power to understand their diagnosis right in their own hands. With thousands of items stored in the glossary, the $1.99 download price makes this a great value.
Staying organized is a challenge for most people, and throwing a cancer diagnosis into the mix can make that obstacle seem insurmountable. That’s where Awesome Note comes in. The app isn’t designed specifically for health care, but its functions make it a great resource for cancer patients. Users can take advantage of its expansive note system to record medications and questions for physicians, as well as everyday tasks like shopping lists. It offers a calendar function where patients can manage everything from doctor appointments and pill regimens to school plays and work meetings. The app offers color-coded folder options and unique icons to help users get and stay organized.
iHealthLog combines both info and organization to help cancer patients get healthy. The app lets users record all of their medications and dosages, with photos of each pill. It even allows for easy emailing of the list to physicians or others. The app also stores physician contact information, and allows users to contact their doctor with just the click of a button. It is especially unique in that it has special features to assist first responders in case of an emergency, giving them quick access to medication information and the user’s personal “health diary.” iHealthLog is an important resource for cancer patients looking to track their progress and head towards health.
As you can see, there are some great resources for cancer patients right at your fingertips.
