When patients and families are going through the process of diagnosing or ruling out cancer, the more information and support they have, the better – that is the philosophy behind Cancer Care Ontario’s Diagnostic Assessment Program – Electronic Pathway System (DAP-EPS). This web-based solution provides patients suspected of having cancer, their families and their clinicians with secure access to accurate and timely medical information and support tools.
According to team leader Melissa Kaan, patients feel more empowered and engaged in their care when they have access to information throughout the diagnostic journey. Using the tool, patients can see the same information their clinicians see, including medical appointments, test results and referrals and can also access easy-to-read explanations about medical procedures.
