CNAO Foundation in the spotlight at SMAU 2018. The Centre received the award for digital innovation in medical records management.

What happens when a modern medical centre for the treatment of radio-resistant and/or inoperable tumours decides to implement an automated system for the centralised storage of all patient information across multiple systems and departments?

Easy! It becomes even more efficient, saving medical staff considerable time in managing medical records.

The CNAO (National Centre for Oncological Adrotherapy) foundation project, implemented by partner DISC Spa, received the 2018 SMAU Innovation Award and will gradually allow the reduction of paper archiving, with substantial paper savings and a strong simplification of information consultation processes.

THE PROJECT

All patient information is collected in ARXivar, which allows real-time access to data, avoiding the time-consuming process of searching for documents in different systems (or even in paper archives), with clear advantages in terms of efficiency and productivity.

The solution uses the existing patient database and allows individual medical reports to be linked to it, which are filled in directly in ARXivar using specific templates. Additional documentation is also managed digitally. Documents are signed, always digitally, by medical staff and consent to data processing is collected by graphometric signature, all in compliance with the GDPR andwithout going through paper. Access to documents is managed through a system of permissions assigned to user groups and document classes. Medical records are then electronically stored, with one click.

Immediate access to data allows all business functions to simplify and speed up their work.“As IT Manager of the CNAO Foundation, my goal is to try to help doctors and health personnel to do their job in the best possible way and with continuity”,said Marco Russo at the awards ceremony.
