Tumour board solutions

Every so often life confronts us with
hard facts. One of the most serious is a cancer diagnosis. Suddenly time becomes
essential. Patients deserve a quick answer as to the course of their
treatment, so they can decide on their future or on how to spend the time that
remains. There is an expert panel that will take a comprehensive look at each case, it’s called the tumour board. For participating clinicians time is of the
essence, so every bit of patient information needs to be ready when they
start. It’s one of the most crucial moments in a cancer patient’s life. My name is Donna and I’m a nurse navigator. At Ellis Fischel Cancer Center in Missouri the highest quality of care was being delivered to patients, but too
much time was spent on collecting data from numerous sources in many different
formats, coordinating logistics and preparing meetings. If you were missing one crucial file, the tumour board might have to postpone its decision, sometimes for days. The tumour board solution allows physicians of all disciplines to easily
view and discuss all patient information via a digital dashboard. The data is
already collected and digitized, well prepared and ready for decision-making
by the specialists. It does not even require physicians to be in the same
room anymore. They can log in, and even in advance, see patient information wherever
they are, to make clinical decisions. For patients a cancer diagnosis changes
everything and one thing patients really want, is certainty. Certainty that the best possible diagnostics and treatment decisions are taken, certainty that all relevant data has been considered and certainty that this happens in a timely fashion. And with the tumour board solution we can help.
