Chemo Brain Doc Notes App

When Jenny Ahlstrom wanted to discuss her multiple myeloma with her oncologist, she would often “go in with mental questions and leave with nothing answered.” So, she created Chemo Brain Doc Notes, a free app for iPhone and Android devices that helps patients and caregivers remember important questions, record discussions with their doctors, retain complex medical terminology and create reminders about prescriptions, side effects, symptoms and test results.

“As a patient, I understand the complexities and challenges of going through chemo and the effects it can have,” Ahlstrom says. “I think this is a simple, easy solution.”

In addition to easily creating and organizing text notes into folders by topic, the app enables users to add voice memos with playback. A one-time $1.99 in-app purchase allows users to email recorded memos, “so the whole family can be on the same page when it comes to treatment,” Ahlstrom says. All proceeds from the app go to fund patient support, education and cancer research. Search for Chemo Brain Doc Notes in the App Store or onGoogle Play.
