The Scottish Centre for Enabling Technologies has developed a free app, available on the iOS and Android platforms, that is designed to make cancer referral procedures easier for doctors and health professionals who are dealing with patients who might have cancer.
The app offers access to an array of resources that help inform clinical decision-making and referrals. It includes a range of information on signs and symptoms as well as images of what to look for. The app's resources can be accessed even without access to an Internet connection, while the app itself can be updated to reflect any changes in guidelines.
Ultimately, this cancer referral app aids in quick and accurate diagnosis of cancer, thereby improving recovery and survival outcomes of people diagnosed with the disease.
