Multidisciplinary case conferences have been shown to improve quality of care, patient satisfaction and time from diagnosis to treatment. Significant resources are devoted to tumor boards today. Studies indicate that conference administrators spend on average 15 to 20 hours per conference, in addition to the several physician hours that go into case preparation. This laborious and time-consuming process limits the number of cases that can be discussed and prevents the addition of new conferences. It also does not provide the opportunity for early involvement of clinical trials or genetics research in the development of the treatment plan.
OncoLensTM replaces the labor-intensive process of cancer conference preparation by using easy to use, click-based templates to create case histories and automatically routing them to pathology, radiology and research teams. In addition, the platform merges case specific clinical trial and decision support guidelines into the presentation. The use of OncoLensTM has been proven to improve the quality and time to treatment for cancer patients.
