The interactive smartphone application "companion" is a system that provides cancer patients undergoing curative treatment with information on current
treatment progress. The aim of the project is to provide patients with an overview of the progress of treatment to date and upcoming examinations. The
Information about the treatments should enable the patient to prepare whenever he or she wants to. Networking with a direct accompanying person with a similar treatment process
serves the exchange on a personal level. Additional exchange of experience is to take place via the community. This exchange is desired by oncologists in order to improve the management of certain topics
to improve the course of the disease.
An interesting service for cancer patients to help them through a difficult phase of life. Through a permanent flow of information and the connection with other patients
certain issues can be better managed. A project with high relevance.
