Trial Information

Evaluation of Patient Functionality and Utility of Web-Based Personal Health History and Risk Assessment

Patient will complete a questionnaire about their knowledge of computers and how long they
think it will take them to finish the patient health history using a computer.

Patient will complete the electronic record carefully and tell us if they had any
difficulties, questions or comments about the format.

Patient will answer a questionnaire about how well they liked or did not like using the
electronic system to give their health history.

Participation in this study will take approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Inclusion Criteria:

- The breakdown of patients recruited by stratified dimensional sampling. Overall, we
will attempt to equally recruit patients from the unique strata for each domain
evaluation in this study. Patients health status will be determined by the ECOG
Performance status . We assume that all patients being seen at the Lifetime Cancer
Screening and Prevention center will be of good to fair health, while patients seen
at the Cancer hospital will range from good- to- fair to poor health status. Gender
is also used as a sampling factor because there are modules within this web-based
health history forms that are specific for each gender.

Exclusion Criteria:

- Respondents who refuse to participate or who become too ill at any point in the
assessment, will be excluded. Non-English speaking patients will be excluded. Names
and other identifying information will not be collected and all data will be reported
in aggregate form. Due to the nature of our stratified samples strategy, some
patients will be excluded if they meet the criteria for a recruitment stata, but that
stata is full.
