This includes tracking appointments and medication, recording their blood cell count data and setting weekly goals for their exercise, sleep, diet and other topics.

The app was launched in May and we are now using a variety of marketing and evaluation techniques to make sure it reaches as many patients as possible and that it meets their recovery needs.
