Concrete results for the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke

An analysis of the implementation safety of our FMECA type software (Analysis of Failure Modes, their Effects and Their Criticality) was carried out at the CIUSSS de l'Estrie - CHUS. They have demonstrated that the ONCO expert system brings a 51% reduction in the risks associated with the chemotherapy prescription compared to the traditional paper prescription

CIUSSS Estrie collaboration - CHUS

ONCO was developed in close collaboration with a multidisciplinary ONCOlogy team from the CIUSSS de l'Estrie - CHUS (pharmacists, doctors, nurses and administrative assistants) in order to meet their needs precisely. Thanks to this collaboration with the people of the community, the implementation is a remarkable success. ONCO is the cornerstone that brings together users from various professions and the information required to facilitate everyone's work to ensure optimal patient treatment.

Standardizes oncology processes

ONCO facilitates the creation and management of chemotherapy protocols. The use of prescription outlines respecting the Canadian recommendations, as well as the use of reusable procedural blocks, ensure standardization at the protocol level and provide a better overview of them. The protocols consist of a set of blocks and those blocks are built from a combination of products/drugs. When a drug changes within a block, it is possible to replicate these changes to all the blocks and protocols involved.

Organizes information useful for patient follow-up

The incorporation of all the clinical data on a “patient view” including the cycles of chemotherapy received, the gap or shit in between administrations, the imaging tests, the interventions of the nurse and pharmacists, allows to quickly have a good overview of the patient’s journey. Each change in the patient’s treatment is represented by a specific iconography, this greatly accelerates the understanding of a patient’s file.

Improves the safety of chemotherapy prescriptions trajectory

The organization of the information needed to prescribe a chemotherapy protocol and the dose calculator included in the electronic prescriber limit errors related to the prescription of chemotherapy. For example, transcription errors are eliminated by interfacing the electronic medical record.

During the initial prescription, the protocol is personalized to the needs of the patient according to the expertise of the clinicians. During the second prescription, it is possible to start from the previous prescription. This makes it possible to reuse, from one cycle to another, all the medication adjustments for a given patient. In this way, we avoid potentials omissions.

A verification tool powered by validation rules related to the patient’s demographic variables and laboratory results helps to catch cases where doses have been misadjusted by the team or a laboratory test has not been performed beforehand.

Informs clinicians and managers about the use of different products and protocols

A custom reporting tool allows you to get all the statistics you need to make informed decisions. New drugs in ONCOlogy are expensive. The reports produced by ONCO will allow you to better identify the populations for which a new treatment could make a difference. The reports will provide you with a quantifiable foundation to improve your processes as well as to optimize your treatments.

In addition, the link between who received what, why and for how long is preserved in a clinical data bank allowing at a glance to clearly identify the population treated.

Dr. Michel Pavic, Hemato-Oncologist

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke

“ONCO is a computerized chemotherapy prescription software that makes life easier for oncologists by saving them time while ensuring a greater level of safety. Indeed, the software is equipped with countless verification tools that make it possible to avoid prescription errors and ensure that the optimal treatment is delivered to the patient. The clinician can easily view the history of all the patient’s treatments. Thus, when the cancer progresses, ONCO avoids tedious searches in the files to trace the lines of previous treatments. In addition, the software offers a pleasant to read timeline on which appear not only the history of the treatments but also the additional examinations carried out as well as the follow-up notes entered in the files. Finally, ONCO offers the possibility of creating intelligent medical notes, keeping in memory the data necessary for the oncological follow-up of our patients. Thanks to its intuitive presentation, this software was immediately adopted by all the hemato-oncologists in our group, and quickly became essential. No one would want to go back to paper prescriptions !!!”

Thomas Joly-Mischlich, Oncology Pharmacist

Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke

“One of the great benefits of this software is the way information is organized to quickly understand what a patient has received, the adjustments made and the evolution of his journey with chemotherapy treatments. The clarity of the message sent by the prescriber makes it much easier to analyze the file on the pharmacy side. The existence of the clinical database, easily searchable, maintaining the links between “who received what, why and for how long” greatly facilitates evaluation projects surrounding patients undergoing chemotherapy. The presence of contextualized alerts is an additional safety net during prescription and validation at the pharmacy.”
