Summary of "Examining the feasibility, acceptability, and potential utility of mobile distress screening in adult cancer patients."

A common method of distress monitoring in cancer patients relies on static and retrospective data collected in-person at the time of a health care provider appointment. Relatively little work has examined the potential usefulness of mobile distress monitoring using cancer patients' smartphones. The current study deployed longitudinal distress monitoring using secure text messaging.
