Recordkeeping for purposes of regulatory compliance in the modern radiation oncology environment is largely a paper driven process. Many software and hardware solutions are available from vendors to solve individual issues relating to the collection and processing of QA data, but few, if any, can collect, process and present the results of this data in a cohesive way.
This presentation will show how electronic recordkeeping is readily and routinely used in the setting of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Service lines, but strangely absent in the Oncology service line. We will attempt to cover current offerings from oncology software vendors that aim to reduce the amount of paperwork and streamline the acquisition and processing of quality assurance data. In addition, we will provide an overview of the solution we are in the process of implementing at our facility.
Goals and Objectives
At the conclusion of the program, participants will be able to:
-Identify the use of electronic recordkeeping in other areas of the hospital setting where radiation and radioactive materials are being utilized.
- Assess the need for some form of comprehensive recordkeeping in Radiation Oncology.
- Assess currently available offerings from vendors.
- Discuss what our facility is implementing to fill this need

An increasing number of health sciences companies are using social networking and social CRM to reach out to diverse stake-holder groups such as health care professionals, collaboration partners, patients and consumers. While social networking provides an opportunity for engaging stakeholders in a two-way dialogue, regulations nevertheless constrain the content of those conversations. While pharmaceutical companies are starting to leverage social media and benefit from greater interaction with their stakeholders, the medical devices sector is seen as lagging behind.Read more >

This is the second in a series of five webinars supporting trusts with cost improvement prgoramme planning, identification, delivery and monitoring.
The second session will cover the following:
• How you enable staff, both clinical and non-clinical, to produce new ideas for service change (does the organisation give staff dedicated time out?)
• The use of benchmarking performance data to help identify saving opportunities and to engage clinicians – how the information is used
• How schemes are rigorously appraised for achievability and appraised appropriately for impact on quality – what is the process for this?
• How organisations check that schemes are consistent with the overall strategic direction of the organisation and the plans of partners
• How the organisation engages clinicians and other staff to achieve change that is both transformational and genuinely produces realistic, sustainable cost savings
•How the organisation ensures that strong leaders are in place whom are capable of driving sustained change – how was this achieved?
•Do you use a PMO or is reporting and accountability devolved to ensure the organisation keeps CIP delivery on track? Who provides challenge where needed?
• How staff are supported to manage risks to delivery?
• How CIP information is communicated to support clinicians and front-line staff
• How the trust focus’s on service transformation and improvement rather than cost saving – has this been hard to achieve?
• How the trust ensures organisational culture promotes the interests of patients as well as finance and performance targets?
•How those responsible for CIP delivery are clearly identified – how accountability works in practice?
• How action is taken in CIPs which are not having a positive impact ?

In the last 10 years there have been tremendous advances in Machine Learning models and applications. In this talk I will discuss some of these progresses, namely on Artificial Neural Networks and the so-called Deep Learning architecture.
As we enter the age of big data, where vast amounts of (mainly unstructured) data are available for training, the achievements of these algorithms in fields such as voice recognition and translation, feature detection, image and video classification, fraud detection, risk management and recommendation systems is astonished.
In this talk some cases will be presented and future directions pinpointed.
