Studies show that patients who participate in their own health care are more satisfied because they are part of the decision making process. We are committed to providing you with the best care. Because of that commitment, OCSRI is excited to introduce Navigating Cancer, an online platform that will help us deliver the best possible care to our patients. The software is designed to automate some tasks and invite you to get involved in your care. It gives your team of doctors a better view of how you are responding to your treatment, so that they can care for you in real time.
The system gives you access to your care team 24/7 through a patient portal, which allows you to report side effects in real time, receive medication reminders, involve your support system in your care and send secure messages to your care providers. It will allow us to deliver important materials regarding your care directly to your portal. It will also help your cancer care team to simplify tasks and share information across the team. Most importantly, it allows you to play a primary role in your own care and focus on what matters most to you.
You will receive information on how to register for Navigating Cancer in the coming months. Please take the time to register and explore how the system can best help you. We feel it is a privilege to serve you during your cancer treatment, and your cancer care team wants you to have the tools and information you need to make the best decisions when it comes to your care.
