Helping people prepare for conversations with their doctors
- Research focus
- Treatment progress, visit preparation, and note-taking feature in the patient app
- Participant focus
- People living with depression in the US and Canada
People prepare for conversations with healthcare professionals (HCP) using journals, note-taking apps, and digital whiteboards. This prep varies according to the patient-HCP relationship, as well as the stage of treatment – with less prep being done for meetings with unknown HCPs.
People feel that Fora Health’s note-taking features could be improved by allowing some notes to be kept private/hidden from HCPs, and by making it easier to use notes to identify changes in specific side effects or symptoms.
