Description

My Cancer Coach is a 69MB app from Genomic Health, Inc. It is free to download from the App store for iOS 9.0 or later and from Google Play 4.0.3 and up. It has an overall rating of 4.5. and been awarded was named one of the Best Breast Cancer Apps by Healthline.com for two consecutive years. 

 

Overview

My Cancer Coach is an app that offers a personalized approach to battling various types of cancer. While the app is presented as a general cancer app that covers many different forms, it seems to only help patients with breast, colon, and prostate cancer. Another drawback mentioned is the lack of a login feature to allow easy access to personalized information from different devices.

 

Personalized Treatment Guide

The app’s primary feature to promote user-focused treatment is the personalized treatment guide. After completing a questionnaire, users are generated individual reports complete with a diagnosis and explanation. Unfamiliar terms can be looked up in the app’s informative glossary. 

 

Journal and Calendar

Users can take advantage of the app’s calendar feature by logging their doctor appointments, support group meetings, and more. The app also suggests questions that may be useful to ask during doctor visits to gain a better understanding. The journal feature seems beneficial for tracking symptoms, feelings, and experiences. 

 

Videos and Other Resources

For the more visual learners, My Cancer Coach offers many videos to help explain the symptoms, science, and treatments, for breast, colon, and prostate cancer. There are also links to patient advocacy websites if users are seeking to widen their support networks.
