New App for Patients - 'My Story Now'
We have developed an app which will enable children and young people who are survivors of cancer, to access their own medical information and results. The app has been developed to empower patients to help look after their condition following treatment for cancer. Watch our short video.
Young People will be able to view their appointment letters, results, scans and treatment information. There will also be a facility for patients to message their nurse specialist and receive replies. As the information is available through an app, patients will be able to read their healthcare details from a mobile phone, tablet or laptop, at a time convenient to them.
The My Story Now app will be available to download from Google Play Apps and is compatible with all operating systems. Confidential health information will be accessed through a secure facility provided by NHS Scotland within the app.
Are you interested in trying out our new app My Story Now? We are looking for young people age 14 – 24 years who have had a diagnosis of cancer to test the app. If you are interested or would like to find out more please contact Bernadine Wilkie, National Clinical Nurse Specialist on 07790383972.
