The ovarian cancer app

The Euro­pean Cen­ter for Ova­ri­an Can­cer (EKZE) of the Women’s Cli­nic of the Cha­ri­té Ber­lin — under the direc­tion of Prof. Dr. Jalid Sehouli — has deve­lo­ped an app for pati­ents and doc­tors to keep you up to date. True to the mot­to: “Know­ledge is oppor­tu­ni­ty”, we want to incre­a­se your health literacy.

Mobi­le pho­nes and their soft­ware app­li­ca­ti­ons have beco­me an inte­gral part of our ever­y­day lives, becau­se they offer many prac­ti­cal aids. This is also the case with the new EGG CANCER APP from the Cha­ri­té Women’s Cli­nic. The first mobi­le com­mu­ni­ty for affec­ted women and doc­tors to make it easier to net­work in ever­y­day life.

Espe­cial­ly after the dia­gno­sis, sick peop­le often feel lonely, aban­do­ned and inse­cu­re. In this situa­ti­on, it hel­ps them to find out about the latest medi­cal deve­lo­p­ments and to exchan­ge ide­as with other suf­fe­rers in order to bet­ter under­stand and pro­cess their own ill­ness. Howe­ver, the chan­ges in ever­y­day life due to ill­ness, with count­less doctor’s appoint­ments and a pan­de­mic, often lea­ve litt­le room for per­so­nal mee­tings. Abo­ve all, pati­ents who can­not par­ti­ci­pa­te in nor­mal life out­side bene­fit from mobi­le offers — regard­less of whe­re they are.

The APP was deve­lo­ped by the Cha­ri­té Women’s Cli­nic — under the direc­tion of Prof. Dr. med. Dr. h.c. Jalid Sehouli — deve­lo­ped in coope­ra­ti­on with 8Health to enab­le women and rela­ti­ves with can­cer to have a con­tem­pora­ry offer. It is about the hig­hest qua­li­ty and cut­ting edge medi­cal infor­ma­ti­on, direct­ly from the com­pe­tence cen­ter, pro­ces­sed sepa­r­ate­ly for tho­se affec­ted and for medi­cal staff.

With the launch of the app, the first mile­stone has been set: “We are very plea­sed that we are able to offer our pati­ents a con­tem­pora­ry ran­ge of ser­vices and that we can use new tech­no­lo­gies to keep the dia­lo­gue going des­pi­te the pan­de­mic,” empha­si­zes Prof. Jalid Sehouli.

Easi­ly down­load the Ova­ri­an Can­cer App from the App Store or Play Store. No regis­tra­ti­on of per­so­nal data is required.
