Integrating And Presenting Patient Data For Personalized Cancer Healthcare
Medicine has become an information business, driven by data from new technologies, especially genomics and imaging, as well as from new sources, like wearables and IoT. Accordingly, excellence in patient care, especially for complex diseases, requires integrating, processing and presenting these data to care-giver teams. Roche is aggressively entering this field, by leveraging its breadth and depth of medical and technical expertise, to develop and commercialize the NAVIFY Decision Support portfolio of workflow and decision support software products. The NAVIFY Tumor Board workflow solution, the first NAVIFY product, collects and combines patient data integrated from multiple silos of in treatment center, including EMR and pathology, and presents them in a single dashboard so cross-functional oncology care teams can review and agree on optimal treatment plan for patients. This presentations will give an overview of the new information challenges in clinical decision-making, and use the NAVIFY Tumor Board as an example of solutions that will become more prevalent across medicine.
