CHAMPS Recognized for Maximizing the Potential of Cancer Registries

Cancer Registries ArticleCHAMPS Oncology is pleased to reveal its featured article “Maximizing the Potential of Cancer Registries to the Fullest” in Healthcare Tech Outlook’s 2018 Healthcare Analytics publication. The article stems from CHAMPS' recognition as one of Healthcare Tech Outlook's "Top 10 Healthcare Analytics Solution Providers of 2018" and a subsequent interview with CHAMPS Oncology Vice President Toni Hare, RHIT, CTR and Associate Vice President Karen Schmidt, CTR.

The article focuses on CHAMPS’ 40+ years of experience in cancer data aggregation and analytics – most recently solving problems faced by C-suite executives of hospitals through its cloud-based analytics system, insight2oncology®.

In the article, the CHAMPS Oncology team explains how i2o allows cancer programs to maximize the potential of their cancer registries. “CHAMPS Oncology leverages a rich data set, presents it to decision makers and educates them about its significance in transforming cancer care services,” said Schmidt. The article goes on to explain in greater detail:

With its platform, insight2oncology®, the company [CHAMPS Oncology] can unearth the meaning behind the data and render a complete facility profile. CHAMPS Oncology can determine patient migration trends and leverage patient navigation trends to determine data points such as disease sites, treatment gaps, and equipment utilization.

The article wraps up by providing an example of how CHAMPS has helped cancer programs maximize the potential of their cancer registries: 

A hospital—part of a major healthcare system in a small community—was serving a specific population. Through analytics, CHAMPS Oncology deduced that their patients were residing in a remote place and were facing difficulties reaching the hospital to receive radiation therapy. CHAMPS Oncology aggregated data points for the demographic such as ZIP code, cancer sites of patients, as well as referral pattern and patients untreated, and compared these information sets with state-level cancer data. The insights and information were uploaded to the client’s system. Eventually, the hospital management decided to open a radiation therapy center within the community to serve them.
