Better results and cost controlProviding medical care for complex diseases like cancer is becoming more and more important. Achieving this is impossible without an interdisciplinary approach to treatment and integrated systems tied together by effective communication processes.
c37.TumorBoard: Process support for effective case conferences
Interdisciplinary treatment is central for successful cancer treatment. Physicians from different fields meet in tumour boards to review different cases and create customised treatment. The integrated electronic support tool c37.TumorBoard can optimize the time requirements for participants and make information, recommendations and customised treatment plans available to all physicians involved in treatment.
c37.CancerCenter: Cancer documentation/Cancer Registry SolutionsTransparency and proof of quality of results requires a qualified comparison dataset. Proper documentation and comparison of results can provide increased legitimacy. Complex cases often require an elaborate dataset for professional tracking of results. Achieving this and also avoiding the pain of unnecessary data accumulation requires intelligence as well as specialised, easy-to-use IT systems, as does the acquisition and presentation of said data.
In order to optimise treatment quality and reduce costs, all parties involved must have access to the same information; this must also be accomplished within existing IT structures and with a reasonably tight budget.
