Help us explore how to better collect data in order to improve cancer care.

Data is becoming increasingly important in healthcare and wellbeing – for self-management, for professionals providing an individual’s care and in helping the wider NHS to better understand conditions like cancer and to improve services.

Data can be collected in different ways. For example, your doctor(s) might have asked you to complete a form, describing your symptoms. Through this project, we seek to understand whether you might want to provide information by phone, text, or perhaps by allowing a smartphone app, fitness tracker (or even a ‘smart speaker’), to share relevant information that it collects, securely with your care team.

The scope of the project is to see if we can build an easier system that might also remember your answers and avoid asking you unnecessary, repeat questions.  Ultimately we will try to create a solution with you that works for you, collecting information in the way you want it to be collected.

For more details please contact us at dhcscot@alliance-scotland.org.uk.

This is a project led by openbrolly Health, being delivered in partnership with the ALLIANCE DHC team, Robert Gordon University and Professor Angus Watson at NHS Highland.
