Managing Health Information In Your Life – UW project

The University of Washinton’s  Managing Health Information In Your Life project has the goal of “Supporting the information management needs of breast cancer patients”

We are designing an information system to help people with breast cancer manager their health information. When making treatment decisions and undergoing treatment, patients are often overwhelmed by the accumulation of unfamiliar information that they need to keep and use.  We want to make it easier for people to organize and maintain all of their information within the context of managing the rest of their lives and schedules.

Our best wishes to the team members! Here is some coverage of the project on CNN.
