UC Davis nursing school hopes to improve care for cancer patients with social network
Date:3/14/2014

(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) Several chemotherapy patients at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center will be invited to use tablets with a unique social networking tool as part of their treatment plan. Researchers at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis hope to prove that mobile health technology improves the care experience for patients as well as the quality of care while also reducing cost.

These people can connect with one another through real-time messaging, video and audio components as well as schedule appointments, assign tasks, store and track information and more.

A nurse coordinator is assigned to support each chemotherapy patient who uses the mobile application. This coordinator monitors the patient's care plan, triages issues and communicates with caregivers. Unlike electronic health records and other information systems common in hospitals, the social netw
