Studies have found that by engaging patients with technology there is an increased chance for cancer screening procedures such as mammograms and colonoscopies.
Technology could transform routine decision making by anticipating patients’ information needs, assessing where patients are with decisions and preferences, personalizing educational experiences, facilitating patient-clinician information exchange, and supporting follow-up. This study evaluated whether patients and clinicians will use such a decision module and its impact on care, using 3 cancer screening decisions as test cases. Via National Library of Medicine
