WorkUp Quality Planner
for Oncology

EMR is for Filing.

Electronic Medical Records (EMR) systems in use today fulfill their requirements to file a patient’s information away, but add little value to care planning and task performance.

Nurses are hurting.

In oral chemotherapy in particular, digital gaps between the oncologist’s selection of a treatment pathway and their team’s delivery to the patient of the actual care, are filled with Post-It notes, Excel spreadsheets, unstructured .pdfs, Google searches, and an overreliance on human memory.

Patients need guidance.

Non-adherence to oral chemotherapy is also a major problem. Current patient education and symptom monitoring tools do not yet enable the continuous, high-touch connection required to keep patients safe and on schedule.

“Nurses should be full partners in redesigning
healthcare in the United States.”

Quality Platform for Oral Chemotherapy Engagement, Monitoring, and Compliance

Our software allows nurses and other care coordinators to track where patients are and where they are headed. Nothing gets overlooked and patients know how to stay adherent.

Key Features

  • Patent-pending plan technologies to push QOPI, OCM, and any clinic-specified quality measures to the right people, at the right time, as easy-to-read checklists.

  • Personalized symptom reporting app for patients that delivers reports immediately to your staff by email, TXT, and direct EMR connection.

  • Algorithms for dose adjustments, and advice on symptom management linked to each patient’s report.

  • Experienced patient enrollment team which enrolls your current oral chemotherapy patients using scripts you pre-approve.

  • A personalized medication calendar for patients which intelligently shows correct days for complex regimens (e.g., Stivarga, Ibrance, etc.), and patient-specific times-of-day for dosing that allows patients to report their compliance.

  • A licensed Oral Chemotherapy Nurse, connected to your staff and triage process, who you may use for proactive patient engagement interventions.

  • Oral chemotherapy adherence and symptom report summaries, accessible on demand as well as integrated with EMR and visit schedule.

  • An “app prescription” feature that allows you to assign patients the task of self-reporting compliance and symptoms during vulnerable times in treatment.

  • Automatically deliver treatment-specific reminders for quality check-ins with patients, according to the interval rules in quality measures, and remove the need for Excel spreadsheets.

  • Easily create audit-worthy reports on oral chemotherapy quality and compliance across your organization, by tracking performance by measure, payer, team member, regimen, and other filters.

  • Innovative, largely free business model: you pay a small per-patient fee for patient enrollment only… the use of the Platform and technology is free to clinics and patients.

Cut out constant cross-referencing and detective work with checklists of prioritized and actionable tasks generated by our protocol expression engine.

Clarity for nurses means clarity for the patient. A nurse’s energy can be spent giving the guidance and support that moves the needle on patient adherence to oral therapies.
