National Institutes of Health – SurvivorCare Phase II - Dimagi

There is an urgent need to address a gap in transitional and follow-up care for long-term cancer survivors shifting from oncology-based to primary and community-based care. Cancer survivors from low-resourced, minority settings face greater barriers to adherence to survivorship guidelines including communication difficulties, discrimination, and health insurance coverage. Patient navigation improves cancer care and access to care in disadvantaged populations.

In this Phase II SBIR project, we will build a web application, SurvivorCare, and validate the usage and utility in real-world clinical settings with potential target end users, cancer survivors, and patient navigators.

In a Phase I SBIR project, we successfully demonstrated the acceptability and usability of a prototype of the SurvivorCare app, and results suggest that the design of the app could be further refined with feedback collected from a larger, more diverse sample of survivors and patient navigators. 

Now, we will build and refine a fully functional version of the SurvivorCare app and evaluate its usage, performance, and reliability through pilot testing with cancer patient navigators and low-resourced, minority cancer patients served by two large urban hospitals.

This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Contract No. 2R44CA265301-02.
