In order to promote health improvements after breast cancer survivors ended treatment, Houston Methodist conducted a pilot study to connect patients with clinicians. A smartphone app was created by researchers from Houston Methodist to help the hospital's providers support breast cancer patients after their treatment. Through the app, breast cancer survivors can input health data, such as logging daily meals, and interact with physicians and clinical dietitians who provide guidance to reinforce healthy choices between hospital appointments.
Houston Methodist said it plans to offer the app, which is currently only accessible to study participants, on Apple's App Store and the Google Play store in the future.
