The purpose of this study is to ensure communication among cancer community is well-supported. Thus, a model for a social interaction system was designed and developed for cancer community namely Cancer Care System (CCS). This study starts off with defining requirements to determine the components of the CCS. Three fact finding techniques were used in this phase namely interview, document study, and comparative analysis. The discovered components were then used to develop a prototype. This study followed by the design and development of CCS where prototyping approach was used. There are four steps involved in prototyping; identify basic requirements, develop initial prototype, use the prototype, and evaluate as operation prototype. User testing was carried out after the development of CCS was completed and the usability evaluation was then conducted through questionnaire. Computer System Usability Questionnaire (CSUQ) was adopted and utilized to measure users' satisfaction in this study. The subjects of this study are cancer patients, parents, and medical practitioners. The findings have shown that most of the users are satisfied with using the CCS in term of system usefulness, information quality, and interface quality. However, a few of suggestions from users should be taken into consideration for future improvement. Finally, this study was concluded by summarizing the overall results and achievement. The recommendations for future study also included.
