The National Cancer Institute plans to release a lightweight electronic health record designed to capture data specific to a cancer patient’s office visit.
The standards-based software has core EHR features for sharing information about patient diagnosis, treatment and outcomes. The EHR is based on early implementation of the Patient Outcomes Data Service, an open source “ultra-light record” derived from standards of NCI’s Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG).
The record, which is set up to provide data on patient demographics, disease and treatment results, could be used by providers and even consumers for data exchange.
