The Koo Foundation Sun Yat-Sen Cancer Center (KF-SYSCC) has established an entirely paperless and filmless clinical process in radiation oncology.
Designed to enhance patient safety as well as operational efficiency, the ARIA oncology information system from Varian Medical Systems automates the essential tasks, built in safety-checks, and centralized patient information for the clinical team.
ARIA combines a comprehensive, oncology-specific patient electronic medical record (EMR) with numerous tools for managing clinical, administrative and financial operations in multidisciplinary cancer care settings.
“Within three months we had removed all paper charts from the department," said Yeh-Chi Lo, Ph.D., chief of the Department of Medical Physics.
