Tanner is seeking feedback on patient vignettes designed to be realistic and vivid, to help us test how different types of vignettes (activated patient vs.not; complex patient vs. not) influence the way oncologists, nurses, and other cancer care team providers use a new web-application we are developing called the “Patient data dashboard.” This dashboard aims to integrate different health technologies to improve the patient experience of cancer care.
