Using Drupal to create a digital patient education experience at Memorial Sloan Kettering

May 12, 2019

At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), the Department of Patient and Caregiver Engagement is dedicated to communicating and engaging with cancer patients, their caregivers, and the public. Within the department, the Patient and Caregiver Education Program collaborates with healthcare professionals to provide accurate, clear, and reliable educational resources.

In this session, we will explore how MSK converted an analog educational resource library to a virtual one using Drupal, creating a dynamic digital experience for users. We will walk the audience through each stage of our development and implementation process, including our experience customizing functionality for both internal and external users.

Additionally, we will explore various methods applied and technologies used to migrate, generate, translate, and manage educational resources in our virtual library. These will include PDF generation, asset management, and the Webform and Lingotek modules.
