Information is power and presenting the right information at the right time can help the industry improve outcome, increase engagement and improve the patient experience. Technology is responsible for improving individual outcomes and the health of populations. Shifting to proactive health is part of the evolution of population health management, which ultimately helps us create healthier stories, improve care, lower costs, increase safety, align priorities, provide long-term value and change lives.

Bringing Oncology Care into the Patient’s Electronic Health Record

Due to the complexity of oncology care many organizations that move forward with CPOE leave their oncology orders on paper or within a separate oncology specific system.  London Health Sciences Centre will demonstrate how Cerner PowerChart Oncology has allowed oncology care to be integrated within the patient’s current electronic health record.   The focus of the discussion will include improvements in patient safety, workflow and communication.  Patient safety improvements include the removal of all transcription, introduction of closed loop medication administration and incorporation of lab, diagnostic imaging and patient care orders within the chemotherapy ordering process.  Workflow improvements, including nursing assessment, review of labs and medication preparation, have allowed for better patient flow through the chemotherapy infusion unit.  Communication improvements are realized not only within the oncology program between the oncologist, pharmacist and nurse but also across the organization as patients access other health care professionals including the emergency department.
