THE CANCER GUIDANCE CENTRER "KAPA3" WAS FOUNDED IN MARCH 2020.
IT WAS CREATED WITH THE PURPOSE OF:
Α. The collection of useful information not only on a website but also in an innovative digital application, with references to every action, measure and action taken concerning people who have or are suffering from cancer. Our priority is the accessibility of our fellow citizens to information on their rights and beneficial provisions of the legislation using of existing healthcare and social welfare structures and services throughout Greece.
Β. Providing counselling and legal assistance, developing a channel of communication between the individuals of the group, creating targeted interventions in local communities, informing and activating the beneficiaries about their rights, creating links with national and local institutions and other NGOs, creating information material, protocols for dealing with and recording incidents.
The planned actions of Kapa3 concern the Greek territory according to the prevalence indicators of the disease and are addressed to cancer patients for assisted living and their social integration, in order to improve their quality of life.
The aim of all our actions is to improve the quality of life of cancer patients by supporting their access to health and social welfare services, removing the barriers that create social exclusion and economic poverty both among patients and in their wider family environment.
The methodology to achieve the objective of each action is mainly based on the successful colaboration among stakeholders and includes the following steps:
- Mapping cancer cases of a defined age range and time horizon to assess the magnitude of the problem.
- Establishing communication channels with the cancer patients, using modern ICT tools.
- Creating targeted interventions in the target group to inform and activate them about their rights.
- Organising of counselling assistance to the target group, based on specific protocols for recording and dealing with incidents.

The Personal Healthcare Assistant app helps you collect and manage all information that concerns you in your journey with cancer. It helps you take control of your health data and access it whenever you need it.
Our work aims at improving a patient’s quality of life through innovation and research. We developed a free mobile app (available on smartphones and tablets, for Android and iOS) that offers a complete and, collaborative Personal Health Assistant.

THE OBJECTIVES OF THIS ACTIVITY ARE:
To develop and validate a digital application that informs cancer patients about all welfare services available, including exactly what sort of evaluation criteria there are and what documentation is necessary, in a direct and personalized manner.
Connect health professionals to patients
Getting requests by cancer patients through to the appropriate, competent public service regarding any issue they may be facing.
Having a real-time overview of issues cancer patients face and progress in tackling them
Becoming able not only to offer support through our phoneline, physical presence, but also through digital means , our website and even proactively through an interactive app.
The proposal of Kapa3 to use the digital app can be a key accessibility tool, providing holistic and personalised guidance to cancer patients.
The innovation of the concept lies in the fact that for the first time it offers integrated and personalized services to cancer patients, caregivers and their families, removing barriers of bureaucratic procedures and following good governance practices.
The team of Kapa3 health professionals informs, guides and processes each request, corresponding to a patient’s required being processed. At the same time, the user is informed , about all the supporting documents and the evaluation criteria at all stages of processing.-. Through daily notifications, all users can be informed about changes in their rights directly and accurately.
In 2020, Kapa3 was selected by the “Points of Support” programme, a partnership of 8 institutions in the country that support the implementation of original small-scale actions with maximum social impact. This became the cornerstone of the whole effort. Our inclusion in the thematic module “Support for the elderly” by the TIMA Charitable Foundation, along with funding, enabled us to participate in capacity building programme implemented ‘by Social Dynamo’, an initiative of the Bodossaki Foundation.
The “Personal Health Assistant” was awarded in 2021 as the first digital application for synergy actions for patients at the Patient Partnership Awards 2021 by Boussias Conferences. This award came as recognition for the hard wprk and dedication with which the team has put into Kapa3.
Today, the Personal Health Assistant app continues to evolve and innovate. We are constantly working to improve its features and keep content up to date with the most timely and accurate information in order to have the greatest possible impact.
