I. To assess the feasibility of a web-based app as an intervention to carry out functions such as weekly reminders, improving patient provider communication, improving patient education
I. To evaluate if high level of adherence to endocrine therapy can be maintained by using our web-based app in early-stage hormone positive breast cancer II. To assess whether the web-based app will improve patient satisfaction, whether patients feel the app helped improve their likelihood of adhering to endocrine therapy by making them feel more confident in their side effect management.
OUTLINE: This is a single arm, feasibility study. 30 patients will be enrolled.
In addition to standard of care, patients will receive access to the web-based application for the study duration (3 months). The app will have the following features: weekly text reminders to continue ET and prompts to report medication side effects, access to educational content explaining common side effects and symptom management strategies, prompts to patients to review this information when they report side effects, and most importantly, the patient will have access to their breast oncology providers to discuss their side effects and ask questions via the app. A feature unique to our app is the educational content readily available to patients. When a patient reports a side effect, the app will direct them to the relevant video explaining that side effect and going over strategies to mitigate them.
