My CARE Source is an innovative web
application that provides personalized support and disease management. More
than just a "portal", this program provides patients with
access to a tool that will help them make informed choices about their
personal plan of care. This innovative tool provides patients with a
personalized treatment plan, the ability to document track and monitor
symptoms and/or side effects of treatment, a health profile for
themselves and family members, care team members directory,
integration with the hospital health scheduling application, discussion
board, educational support, and the ability to provide feedback
regarding the application as well as hospital services.
