Abstract


Oral anticancer medications (OAMs) can be challenging for patients due to their complex regimen. The goal of this research is to design a customized mobile application that can empower low health literacy patients taking OAMs and increase adherence and satisfaction with clinical care. A User-Centered Design approach was implemented by consulting with clinicians and patients at an early stage of development. Animations were incorporated to distill complex medical concepts and information. An iterative design process ensures that the tool is customized for patient engagement.
