The oncologist’s workflow

I’ve been pretty busy lately, but I’d like to share a link I found about the general clinical oncology workflow. Hopefully this may shed some light on why clinical oncology EMR systems are so much different from the EMR systems of other types of practices.

It takes dedication and focus to come up with a competitive product in this market, and just providing ‘templates’ is not enough to increase productivity, safety and ROI.

 

 

Quick edit:

One divergence from the article that Ankhos takes is our lack of automatic drug calculations. There are handy calculators integrated into the system to calculate AUC and BMI, but every dose must be entered by a human in absolute milligrams (or cc, etc.). The computer is not allowed to determine or alter any doses.
