Due to a variety of factors, today’s oncologists face multiple challenges in collecting, managing, and sharing their patients’ health data. One challenge involves the sheer volume of information that is typically generated in routine oncology care. This includes an increasing number of diagnostic, prognostic, and monitoring tests that physicians administer to plan, monitor, and adapt treatment to optimize safety and efficacy. Additionally, the growing use of multimodal therapy creates an increasingly complex treatment environment that may involve care providers across multiple disciplines and departments, such as medical oncology, radiation oncology, and surgery. Moreover, many patients may receive supportive care, such as nutrition counseling and mental health services, which must also be incorporated into their medical records.
