The Problem Statement
Managing Oncology Multidisciplinary Teams requires satisfying two disparate goals; firstly, designing a range of clinician-facing systems that are individually tailored to suit each different tumour stream, and secondly building a single standard backend for all these different systems that connects to many appropriate information feeds within the hospital and further afield as needed.
What does iCIMS do?
iCIMS uses its patented, award-winning software platform to help clients create tailored clinical workflows to solve their in-house needs. Our platform helps clients build more efficient and standardised clinical information systems rapidly and without code, allowing them to collect and access data more efficiently and effectively, and build workflows that communicate across multidisciplinary teams.
iCIMS is not an institutional Electronic Medical Record (EMR). As such we don’t attempt to run the hospital’s various systems. We concentrate on areas within our domain knowledge where we can add value and can to extend the reach of an EMR into areas where it makes sense and eliminate siloed lower-level systems such as ACCESS databases, EXCEL spreadsheets, WORD documents, and paper records to bring them all into a single, seamless environment.
Our unique advantage is our ability to be exceedingly adaptable, allowing for customisation across rapidly evolving healthcare workflows while integrating with the hospital’s wider ecosystem, and beyond.
What applications and use cases can this technology be used for?
iCIMS works with some of the largest private and public hospitals in Australia, including the Sydney Adventist Hospital, where it has built a highly automated cancer system to manage patients across ten multi-disciplinary specialities, each with its own tailored front end all supported by a single standardised backend.
