Challenges and solutions to streamlining oncology workflow

Oncology workflow challenges


Cancer care is often not as patient-centered, accessible, coordinated, or evidence-based as it could be, and this has a detrimental impact on patients and on the efficiency of your institution.


Challenges - Cancer care

Lesion measurements in radiology are essential means to track efficacy of therapy objectively.



Oncologists need to identify and review the past and present histories of their patients, especially concerning therapy responses, treatment, and disease episodes.



Clinical routine use of existing systems to measure tumors and track treatment response are limited because they are not well integrated into PACS and EMR.


It is estimated that there are over 30M findings to manage per year in the US alone, which means there are over 1500 findings per year per radiologist on average. Your oncologist radiologists are hindered with time consuming tasks, such as prior lesion look up and management, inefficient dictation of measurements, errors in dictation, and radiology reports that are cumbersome for everyone.

Oncology workflow solutions


What if you could provide an integrated system for your oncologist/radiologists, designed to manage and track these essential measurements of routine diagnostic reading workflow?


And, at the same time, what if you could provide radiologists, oncologists, patients and caregivers with one holistic overview, which they can all use to track disease, treatment, and follow-up data?


Solutions - Clinical Context Apps

Philips Clinical Context Apps: Measurement Assistant captures longitudinal records of quantitative findings in routine PACS workflow to improve reporting accuracy and workflow efficiency in radiology and oncology. With this solution, your staff can:


  • Save time in radiology-oncology collaboration with easy lesion navigation and linking to prior findings
  • Manage and track any measurement made in the routine diagnostic reading workflow
  • Integrate radiology and oncology information in one view
  • Support oncology-patient discussions

Philips Clinical Context Apps: Oncology Dashboard presents a quantitative record of disease and treatment events into routine oncology workflows. In one timeline, this tool:


  • Tracks and relates disease, treatment, and follow-up data over the entire history of a patient within the hospital's enterprise PACS
  • Supports oncology-patient discussions by presenting a better explanation of disease and treatment responses
  • Integrates results with oncology information supporting multi-disciplinary collaboration
  • Facilitates transparent communication between oncology & radiology on course of treatment and disease progression
  • Intuitively assesses treatment response utilizing evidence based guidelines
  • Offers fast one-click access to lesion images with measurements
  • Can be made available to multiple team members through seamless integration with all viewers

With these two simple oncology workflow tools, you can help your staff:


  • Save time and reduce errors
  • Capture longitudinal records of quantitative findings
  • Easily navigate and orchestrate measurement workflow
  • Transfer results seamlessly from Measurement Assistant into a diagnostic report and Oncology Dashboard to easily be shared among departments, multiple-stakeholders and with patients and their caregivers for a more efficient and comprehensive patient experience
