Q-Centrix's oncology software uniquely streamlines the entire data mining process, through analytics and insight reporting

The largest exclusive provider of clinical data management solutions to hospitals and health systems, Q-Centrix, has opened the Q-Centrix Oncology Platform, the first oncology data solution in the market.

The platform’s purpose is to streamline capturing and submitting oncology clinical data.

Founded in Chicago, 2010, Q-Centrix has a revenue of US$72mn and has 800 employees who provide safe, consistent and quality health care.


Creating secure clinical data

The Q-Centrix Oncology Platform brings the capabilities of Q-Centrix's team of Certified Tumor Registrars (CTR) to create secure clinical cancer data insights in real-time. This is especially critical now, as cancer departments across the world forecast an influx of new cancer cases, due to pandemic-induced screening delays.

Key features of the oncology platform include:

  • State-of-the-art clinical and operational analytics
  • A unified platform for workflow
  • Supports growth of hospital/system programmes
  • SOC 2 + HITRUST Security Assessment, which will ensure data security exceeds industry standards 


An opportunity for oncology transformation

Chief Product Officer at Q-Centrix, Brian Foy, is excited to provide patients with a new technology which ensures data integrity and availability.

"Oncology programmes throughout the country are facing a tremendous challenge as a result of the new rapid reporting system for oncology registry data that was put into place last year”, said Foy. “As the oldest registry in the market, this required a complete overhaul of protocols that had been in place, presenting a need for concurrent abstraction and the opportunity to transform cancer data management programmes with more current data."

"Q-Centrix's long history of curating high-quality data for our partners across the country uniquely qualifies us to understand the importance of ensuring their clinical data has a purpose beyond submissions", said Karen Schmidt, Vice President of Oncology Services. “This clinical data is expertly curated to offer enterprise-level real-time analytics, reporting and dashboards. In addition, our partner health systems have the option to seamlessly round-trip data to any enterprise data warehouse. Our platform also provides best practice profiles and connections from throughout the partner community to offer unique engagements, benchmarks and insights.”

"The expansion of our eCDM™ platform to include oncology makes it the first and only solution in the market that's certified to submit data for surgical, regulatory, cardiology, and oncology registries", said Raghu Bukkapatnam, Chief Growth Officer for Q-Centrix. "Being a leader in clinical data management, we understand how critical it is for hospitals to address inefficiencies in data capture and submission in order to truly take advantage of the actionable insights that can only be gleaned from clinical data. Delays in managing data are creating backlogs that inhibit innovation and improvement. The purpose of our eCDM™ platform is to provide a modern, enterprise-wide solution that helps health systems meet the demand for high-fidelity, structured clinical data, provide the resources to analyse and learn from it, and use these findings to support their mission of improved patient outcomes and overall performance."
