OWise was recently featured in an article in The National that talks about how an app that can benefit breast cancer patients is being trialled in Scotland. 

OWise has been integrated into the electronic health system in NHS Lothian, meaning that patients are alerted if they need to get in contact with their health team and doctors and nurses are immediately aware of deterioration in symptoms. This is through the UK Oncology Nursing Society’s triaging system which is used by the Cancer Treatment Helpline in Scotland.
