The Early Detection Plan is a program used by the NBCF to help women be proactive about their health by reminding them to attend regular routine exams - mammograms, clinical breast exams and breast self-exams. The EDP app fights breast cancer by attacking it with a plan, to prevent the disease in its earliest stages and ultimately, saves lives.
The Early Detection Plan works like a reminder system. Based on previous exam history and risk factors of the user (such as history of breast cancer within their family), the apps algorithm will automatically generate a recommended date. This allows the user to edit how and when they would like to be reminded about their exam. If the user has a high risk factor, they will be reminded to attend a mammogram as soon as possible and a push reminder will notify them accordingly.
