Since launching the My Journey in 2018, we’ve regularly heard from health professionals in our network about the need for a downloadable app, and from My Journey users about how beneficial the addition of a symptom tracker would be.
We’re delighted to announce today that we’ve responded to these suggestions, and have introduced both an in-built symptom tracker and downloadable app.
The symptom tracker has been designed, with the help of consumers, to support users in recording the physical and emotional symptoms of a breast cancer diagnosis. It will empower users to actively participate in their own symptom management, while helping them to feel confident in accurately sharing the ups and downs of their experiences with you and their team of health professionals.
This innovative symptom tracker function interacts with the vast range of content that My Journey offers to provide users with relevant and trusted advice in response to the symptoms they are experiencing.
Breast cancer patients and health professionals discuss how My Journey helps them
In response to overwhelming feedback from health professionals and patients, we are also releasing a downloadable app version of My Journey – making it easier than ever for you to introduce and demonstrate the use of My Journey to your patients while in a consultation.
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) CEO Kirsten Pilatti says the updates are a game changer and an important evolution for My Journey.
‘The downloadable app and symptom tracker demonstrate how committed we are to listening to consumer and patient feedback and working to ensure My Journey meets the needs of health professionals and people affected by breast cancer.’
My Journey is the go-to resource for people affected by breast cancer, providing tailored information and support at every stage of the treatment journey and beyond.
Relevant for those diagnosed with DCIS, early breast cancer and metastatic disease, as well as those who have finished treatment and are living beyond breast cancer, whether accessing via the app or web browser, you can be confident your patients are accessing the most reliable, up-to-date, and accurate information and support, from wherever they are.
While the My Journey symptom tracker function is currently in beta, various improvements are planned in the coming weeks, and adjustments will be made based on health professional and member feedback.
