Novartis Oncology Announces Mobile Apps
My Net Manager and Clinical Trial Seek
Novartis Oncology has announced the launch of two new patient-oriented mobile phone apps to help patients better manage their health and allow them to more easily access and share important health information with their physician. My Net Manager is supported by six patient groups and Clinical Trial Seek is sourced from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
My NET Manager app offers patients with neuroendocrine tumors (NET) several tools that can help them organize information specific to their type of cancer. The tool allows patients to:
Record symptoms as they occur.
♦ Access health care team contact information.
♦ Set medication reminders.
♦ Keep track of appointments.
♦ Review and track test results.
♦ Share information with their health care team.
♦ Track insurance
Clinical Trial Seek helps patients and doctors quickly and easily search for cancer clinical trials sourced from the National Institutes of Health database (clinicaltrials.gov). The Clinical Trial Seek app features a flexible and extensive search that makes it easy for patients and healthcare professionals to find, navigate, and share in-depth clinical trial information, such as:
♦ Learn more about clinical trials and how they work
♦ Find clinical trials in your area
♦ Search by location, disease type, treatment, phase of trial, trial sponsor, age or gender of patients eligible to participate, and/or keyword
♦ Save searches to Favorites
♦ E-mail specific search results to yourself or to others
♦ Understand different hase of the clinical trial
♦ Eligibility requirements to participate (age, gender) in trials
♦ Trial sponsor
Both apps are free and can be downloaded from iTunes® or the application store for your Android™ mobile device.
