Project Information:
About the Digital Cancer Management Project - there is so much to talk about this project, but let´s keep it short for now:


Because patient should focus on fighting cancer and not bureaucracy. They need to have a smart and customizable app ecosystem solution to fit their cancer management to their cancer.


Driven by the community for the community in the spirit of an open source project.
Who should join?
Everyone who is interested can join, but especially people with app programming skills (e.g. React), backend, UI / UX or open source project experience.

1. Foundation: Create an open-source environment for the app which enables community-driven development and implementation of application modules.
2. Modular Applications: Create a patient specific, modular environment. Once the foundation for the app is set and the patient was guided through an on-boarding process, it should be possible to search for available application modules and activate them on demand. Potential Modules are e.g. medication plan, diary of related conditions & side effects or clinical trial support

Doing so, the sensitive topic of data privacy is not a feature, it is a Must. Users should only share their data with clear intent and full transparency for instance with their oncologist or relatives.

3. Patient Centric Design:
To provide a channel for cancer patients to express their problems and needs in order for community developers to pick them up and solve them a centralized interface is needed to collect relevant information and keep the community updated about current activities and challanges.
