Background: Data are limited regarding anatomic variations of the paranasal sinuses (PNS) in the Filipinos. Although several studies have described the relationship between concha bullosa as well as nasal septal deviation and PNS disease, only few have investigated the relationship between the infundibular size and maxillary sinusitis. Aim: This study aims to report the prevalence of nasal septal deviation, concha bullosa, and infundibular size, and to determine their association with CT-confirm...

Background: The Internet-based Computerized Patient Assessment System (iComPAsS), a remote pain- and symptom-reporting application was developed to optimize pain monitoring and management. This subanalysis sought to examine factors influencing compliance, to gauge the sustainability of its effects and to guide further development and implementation as part of usual care. Aim: This analysis sought to examine factors influencing compliance, to gauge the sustainability of its effects and to guide f...

IntroductionThere is still under treatment of cancer symptoms and our local data shows that a significant number of cancer patients seen in our center needed consultation outside scheduled visits (53%) and needed urgent care (31%) for symptom control. A mobile application was developed to address the need for timely symptom reporting of patients. Despite the success of similar innovations in the United States, its feasibility in the local context is still unknown and its perceived benefits might...

Background: Data on the attitude and perception of adult Filipino cancer patients towards health-related information and communications technology (ICT) and prevalence of access to, willingness to use of and actual usage of ICTs are lacking. We sought to assess the needs, acceptance and readiness of our cancer patient population for a web-based patient-reported outcomes capture system (WPROCS), eventually to be called Internet-based Computerized Patient Assessment System (iComPAssS) in order to ...

Background: A web-based patient-reported outcomes capture system (WPROCS) can potentially improve efficacy of symptom monitoring and management and overcome barriers to long-term monitoring and care among adult cancer patients. The patients’ needs, acceptance and readiness for such a system need to be explored and understood to support and guide its development. We developed an instrument to survey needs, acceptance and readiness for WPROCS among adult cancer patients. Methods: Literature was se...

Background: Telehealth applications may improve health outcomes by engaging patients as active participants, focusing clinic visits on important problems and intensifying symptom management in response to patient reports. Our group developed an internet-based computerized system for patient self-report of symptoms (iComPAsS), and our aim is to evaluate the usability of this mobile application for reporting cancer symptoms among patient and physician end-users. Methods: The literature was surveye...
