This project seeks to improve the health care experience for breast cancer patients by working at the intersection of patient-centered care and technology. We are working with Microsoft HealthVault to better understand how patients can use personal health records to become increasingly engaged in their own health care. By understanding how patients use current technology we hope to be able to design future tools which will improve patient engagement and health outcomes.
