Abstract

CancerIQ sells a “cancer risk clinic in a box”, allowing hospitals to quickly find out their patients’ risk for hereditary cancer through an intuitive quiz. The business project attempts to tackle the problem of getting patients into the hospital by offering a free intuitive version of the company’s product. By informing users (based on their daily activities) about the chances of getting cancer, along with the survival rates based on time of treatment, hopefully they will be inspired to go to their doctor and become more informed. Optimally, people will take the quiz, decide to get tested, and stop a cancer before it becomes a problem. The overall deliverable was an intuitive web app that asks the user some questions and then provides statistics/advice based on their responsive. Creating it required research into statistics on cancer survival rate based on stage and actions that affect the chances of getting cancer. It also required different web app technologies including React and material-ui. The final product should lead the user to using CancerIQ’s overall product, but at least get tested.
