Ten subspecialty tumor boards relied on legacy technologies and data from disparate sources, manually searched and added to PowerPoint presentations. Residents spent up to six hours a week preparing for each conference.1 MU needed an improved, electronic process to coordinate tumor board conferences and a streamlined method by which to pull and visualize data from diverse sources.
MU onboarded NAVIFY® Tumor Board for four conferences in quick succession. MU’s Cerner EHR was integrated to automate preparation and presentation.
- Participants have access to key patient data and assets (e.g., images) and can submit patient cases weeks in advance of tumor board meetings.
- Users report a streamlined process and time savings.
- Some manual data entry has been eliminated. Presentations are in one place, in timeline order, for review.
- Additional MU tumor boards plan to adopt NAVIFY Tumor Board.
