AbstractCancer research has led to more cancer patients being cured, and many more enabled to live with their cancer. As such, some cancers are now considered a chronic disease, where patients and their families face the challenge to take an active role in their own care and in some cases in their treatment. To this direction the iManageCancer project aims to provide a cancer specific self-management platform designed according to the needs of patient groups while focusing, in parallel, on the wellbeing of the cancer patient. In this paper, we present the use-case requirements collected using a survey, a workshop and the analysis of three white papers and then we explain the corresponding system architecture. We describe in detail the main technological components of the designed platform, show the current status of development and we discuss further directions of research.
