mHealth impact in Oncology is now “exploding”

“so we’re excited this year that ASCO has continued to emphasize the importance of mHealth or Mobile Health to its membership, this is an exciting area that’s now exploding”

Adam Dicker, MD, PhD, of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Centre, Philadelphia, talking at the American Society of Oncology (ASCO) 2017 Annual Meeting that was held in Chicago on the 1-5 June 2017.

While I can’t find a recording of the actual conference session (get in touch if you’d like to help us produce/record and distribute a ‘mHealth for Oncologists’ course) I think this is very positive because the major Cancer Charities are proving a big let down in this area (eg. they’re proving they’re experts in the abuse of personal data rather than in ways that advance science and help Patients/Carers) and it’ll get us a step closer to getting widespread support for mobile first designed clinical trials which will be a lot more productive than “wearing a pink ribbon or dropping a dollar in a bucket“…
