Roseanne Pegler, Executive Lead of the Regional Cancer Program Central LHIN, and Jay Lawrence, PatientWay CEO, will team-up to deliver a session at the upcoming IT Healthcare Canada Conference in Toronto this October.
Streamlining Cancer Centre Patient Registration and Symptom Management with an Automated and Patient-Centred Model will highlight how The Stronach Regional Cancer Centre and PatientWay are leading a successful project to streamline repeat visit check-ins for patients thanks to kiosk technology.
In an effort to improve the overall patient experience, the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre in Newmarket, Ontario, became the first Cancer Centre in the province to introduce an integrated symptom and registration kiosk for patients receiving cancer treatment.
The PatientWay Kiosk enables the Cancer Centre’s patients to enter a record of their symptoms at the same time as they register for their scheduled appointment. While patient registration and check-in kiosks have been widely used in other facilities for a number of years, the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre is the first to offer integrated check-in and symptom assessment apps.
The two organizations also engaged Cancer Care Ontario and Elekta to create a unique three-way integration between the hospital’s ADT, CCO’s ISAAC system and MosaiQ. Now, instead of having to visit two or three points of service, patients have the choice of using any of the five kiosks at the centre. These kiosks update the ADT, send a queuing message MosaiQ, and collect the patient’s ESAS scores from one seamless encounter.
