OUTPATIENT CANCER CARE

August - December 2012 
Client: Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK)
Team: Knowl Baek, Kyle Duke, Monica Li, Roy Luo

Problem:

Cancer patients are highly engaged with the medical team during their surgeries and receive most attention from caregivers along the major treatments. However, many cancer survivors feel depressed after being released from the hospital and struggle to lead healthy, positive lifestyles when they return home. 

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) asked us to explore how MSK might engage and connect with cancer survivors after the completion of critical treatment and extend the high quality of care to their homes.

Outcome:

Designed a social mobile game concept that motivates cancer survivors to keep a healthy lifestyle and fluid communication with the medical team after being released from hospital.

Developed design principles for a platform that leverages Human API as an effective source of cancer survivor’s quantitative and qualitative data in real time. 

Published and presented a paper, ‘Human API as a Research Source in Healthcare,’ at Ethnographic Praxis in Industry Conference (EPIC) ‘13, London.
