Avva Advocate is a comprehensive breast health application. Breast cancer patients in active treatment can use it to prepare for important visits with their physician, and any woman following mammography screening guidelines can use it to keep track of their mammogram schedule. Avva Advocate also gives you access to hundreds of high-quality educational videos produced by the non-profit organization Vital Options International on a variety of topics relating to breast cancer, from the latest research to stories of hope from survivors.
The app operates in one of two basic modes: screening mode and treatment mode.
In screening mode, Avva Advocate is an essential app for every woman following mammography screening guidelines. It's an elegant, easy-to-use, and beautifully simple app that reminds you when it's time to schedule a mammogram. Just install the app, put in your birth month and year, and tell us what screening guidelines you'd like to follow. You can choose to follow the American Cancer Society (ACS) guidelines, the US Preventive Services Task Force guidelines, or your own schedule.
After that, you can forget about the app completely if you want – if enough time goes by without you having a mammogram, Avva will buzz you on a weekly basis with a friendly reminder until you let us know you've had your mammogram. You can also use Avva Advocate to keep track of your mammogram results over time so it's easy to keep and review your records. Avva Advocate will give you peace of mind, knowing that you're following a mammogram screening plan and won't ever forget to have a mammogram when it's time.
If you're a recently diagnosed breast cancer patient, you can use Avva Advocate in treatment mode to help you prepare for important upcoming visits with your physician.
The app walks you through a simple, step-by-step process to create a list of questions for your doctor at each visit. Based on your treatment situation and personal preferences, Avva Advocate will provide you with highly targeted suggested questions that other patients just like you have asked their doctor and found helpful. Use our suggestions to build your list, or add your own questions too.
Once a list of questions is complete, it's saved to your iPhone for later access. During a visit, pull up your list and save answers to your questions as you're talking to your doctor. You can also record audio at the same time, so that the conversation with your doctor is saved for you to play back anytime.
