Harnessing the Power of Oncology Data

Oncology practices are uniquely positioned to explore new patient care options via clinical trial participation and biopharmaceutical partnerships. Data aggregation and curation is essential for oncology practices to be able harness the power of their data. XIFIN partnered with NCODA, Inc., a globally recognized association that develops unique resources to help medically integrated oncology teams deliver top-tier care. The NCODA Informatics Initiative powered by VisualStrata is designed to help oncology practices attract clinical trials and bridge the gap with pharmaceutical organizations. As oncology groups work to find and secure clinical trials – thereby expanding patient care options within their practice – purpose-built solutions are needed to enhance the data from their existing electronic health record (EHR) or practice management system (PMS).

Oncology professionals seeking to attract clinical trials, reduce administrative burden, and increase their practice’s financial health will benefit from this panel discussion featuring NCODA and Utah Cancer Specialists executives and XIFIN experts who will share:

  • The vision underlying the NCODA and XIFIN partnership
  • How Utah Cancer Specialists has benefited
  • Practice enhancement opportunities through
    • Accelerated chart reviews
    • Preliminary identification of clinical trial participants
    • Retrospective analysis of data
    • Insights of patient journey patterns

How Data Science Makes Your EHR Smarter AND Accelerates Your Precision Medicine and Healthcare Informatics Programs

Healthcare data is complex, and it needs to be accessible by clinicians as they are making treatment decisions. Currently, enterprise health systems such as EMRs and EHRs are not effectively supporting precision medicine programs. Precision medicine and population health specific informatics approaches and technologies that aggregate and curate clinical, diagnostic, financial, and other data can positively augment the functionality of enterprise EMRs and EHRs.

Healthcare and precision medicine leaders seeking to improve how their EMRs and EHRs support their precision medicine or population health programs will benefit from this presentation that explores:

  • Technology challenges with current HIT systems for precision medicine programs
  • Precision medicine data complexity
  • How to successfully overcome HIT and data challenges
  • Informatics approach to aggregate and organize structure and unstructured clinical, with diagnostic and financial data
  • How optimally architected high-quality data can be used for multiple purposes including data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence
