Sherry Soeder gives insight on how IT can help with survivorship care.

Sherry Soeder, CNP, of Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center, discusses the importance of information technology (IT) in survivorship care.

Electronic medical records (EMR) can help in organizing the varied information that must be kept track of for patients in survivorship care. The information that is accumulated from various tests and care plans can be auto-populated into the EMR. The care plan can also create automatic reminders to patients so their appointments stay on schedule, and to nurses so they can expedite results.
