Abdul Mutalib, Ariffin and Hashim, Nor Laily (2011) Design and development of a ubiquitous cancer care system: A collaborative communication among cancer community. Informatics Engineering and Information Science, 254. pp. 115-134. ISSN 1865-0929

Communication among cancer community (specifically patients, parents, and medical practitioners) has not been pervasively-supported.In response to that, this paper reports on a study that ensures communication among cancer community is supported with a ubiquitous communication model.The model is proposed to provide an alternative for the community to communicate; discussing among patients, parents, and medical practitioners.In particular, the system is important because the treatments for cancer mostly take a long time, and the entities in the community are normally closed, which leads to frequent communications. Furthermore, most of topics communicated among cancer community are only understood by themselves. Hence, the paper aims at discussing the design and development of respective prototype.An appropriate model is formed first; then the prototype development follows.The prototype is discussed at length in this paper.At the end, initial feedbacks from the cancer community prove that the designed prototype works well in supporting the communication among cancer community in a ubiquitous environment.
