Oncology Research Information System now live at King's
We've blogged in the past about the Oncology Research Information System as an enterprise-breadth platform to support personalised cancer medicine.
When the System was presented at the NOCRI Information Systems Workshop towards the end of last year we gave you this overview taken from Prof. Peter Parker's abstract:
"ORIS is an IT platform that enables the routine extraction of consented, structured clinical data (notes, images, etc), its pseudonymisation and export into a research data store, from which patient cohorts can be selected and their information linked to molecular data derived from research"
We received an update from IDBS who are leading on the implementation and who look to have countered suggestions that the project was slow to deliver: "As you know until now, cross-hospital translational medicine technology to consolidate data across different scientific domains has been the subject of some debate but we have seen little movement in the industry in terms of actually making it happen. It is very pleasing to have the ORIS platform now in production [in] just under a year from when we started... with a lot of work that is now in the product so as we implement now the time scales are much reduced."
They also sent us a link to the press-release which gives further information and includes a link to details of their Enterprise Translational Medicine Solution.
