Emojis help in understanding the overall health of cancer patients, says study

A recent study says that using emojis may help in examining the physical, emotional and overall quality of life of cancer patients.

Cancer patients go through complex medical care such as surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and others which may affect their physical, emotional, financial and spiritual life in a negative way.

Understanding a patient's quality of life through electronic emoji scales can help provide the best treatment options, says the research.
