For individuals with cancer, decisions regarding care management throughout the treatment phase are numerous. While shared decision-making aids for screening, prevention, and selection of early treatment options are available, there is a lack of knowledge about how shared care management tools might support adherence to and outcomes of the treatments once selected.The proposed On Point technology is a mobile application that is interoperable with an electronic health record (EHR) that enables shared care management and optimizes an individual’s adherence with their own plan of care during active therapy.
