The ProblemCancer center operations is complex
- Very sick patients
- Legacy slot scheduling is very inefficient
- Challenges implementing best practices across clinics
- Varying treatment plans and durations
- Multiple service types
- Staff burnout and resource constraints
- Drug prices and practice expense pressures
- Payer related compliance and pressures
The Solution - OncoSmart™Cancer care made easy
OncoSmart™ is a digital transformation platform that optimizes and simplifies the complexities of cancer treatment clinic operations. OncoSmart™'s clinic management, optimization, nurse assignment, business intelligence, and resource management modules empower infusion centers to better manage critical clinical resources and deliver the best in cancer care.
How OncoSmart™ Works
Obtain clinic data
iClinicVue™ enables our customers to obtain and manage clinic data from multiple clinics in a centralized fashion. This helps in standardizing operating practices and maintain a consistent operation of all the clincis.
Generate optimized templates
OncoSmart’s iOptimize uses clinic configuration data, historic patient data, proven statistical models and proprietary optimization algorithms to generate day of the week time-slot templates to enable optimized scheduling.
Present optimal times
When prompted by the scheduler our scheduling assistant interacts with the EMR to retrieve current clinic data and presents an ordered list of optimal times for the patient to be scheduled.
Intelligently assign patients
In order to achieve optimal nurse load balancing, iAssign™ performs intelligent patient assignments to treatment room nurses. Our sophisticated, proprietary algorithms take into consideration multitude of variables to objectively distribute patients across nursing staff minimizing nurse burnout and resulting in best patient experience.
Monitor, get notified, and act
Our customers use iTrack™ to monitor different KPIs that impact clinic operations and take appropriate actions as needed. Receive periodic reports, set custom thresholds and get automatic notifications with recommendations to take corrective actions.
Evaluate options for efficient resource and constraint management
Perform resource and constraint optimization and analysis by modifying parameters such as available RNs, clinic operating hours, etc., to understand the impact on day to day operations. Get an in-depth understanding of bottlenecks and intelligently manage resources.
Decrease in delay
Increase in capacity
Decrease in overtime
Oncology patients have a lot to deal with and their experience with their healthcare providers is incredibly important. One of the biggest drivers to patient dissatisfaction is extraneous wait times. With OncoSmart™, patient wait times can be dramatically reduced, allowing the patient to focus 100% of their energy on their treatment and recovery.
Oncology scheduling can be incredibly complex. OncoSmart™ was designed from real patient data and allows oncology practices nationwide to increase their capacity to best serve growing patient demand for services, creating new revenue opportunities powered by scheduling optimization.
Nothing can be more stressful than caring for sick patients. Peak hours and days when the volume of patients and number of procedures surpass staffing capacities create a stressful climate for nurses and other oncology clinical staff. OncoSmart™ optimally balances nursing and clinical workloads, improving morale, staff engagement and job satisfaction, which ultimately leads to less stress and lower turnover of critical resources.
Perception and reality can differ significantly. We use real data and sophisticated statistical analysis algorithms to identify resource utilization. This enables our customers to objectively decide on allocation of different resources and an intelligent management of them. Outcome of such resource management leads to direct cost savings without burdening the available resources.
Decrease Operating Expenses
Suboptimal scheduling and complex treatment schedules can significantly increase the expenditures of Oncology Practices by requiring nursing staff to work long shifts, often beyond scheduled operating hours. Overtime and temporary labor expenses are a key concern for most Oncology Practices. OncoSmart™ streamlines patient scheduling, and virtually eliminates extended operating hours while reducing labor expenses.
Improve Patient Safety
OncoSmart™ improves patient safety and outcomes by stabilizing hectic and chaotic oncology environments that can easily distract and stress nurses and other clinical staff, which is known to cause patient treatment errors. With OncoSmart™, nurses and other clinical staff can take a deep breath and focus on what matters the most, the patient in front of them.
