Oncology Data Abstraction: Leveraging the Clinical Expertise of Oncology Nurses to Unlock Clinical Insights from Data in Electronic Health Records

Background

 

The vast majority of published oncology treatment data solely incorporate experiences of 3% of adult cancer patients treated on clinical trials. 

Among the other 97%, each patient’s story has the unique potential to teach us something new about the way cancer works, improve quality of care and help us find more effective treatments, faster.

•Initiatives like the 21st Century Cures Act serve to facilitate utilization of real-world data for generation of clinical and research evidence.
•Electronic health records (EHRs) are a major source of real-world data
•The challenge: much of the available real-world clinical data for the 97% of patients treated in the real word are:
•Stored across thousands of disconnected community clinics, medical centers and hospitals
•Unstructured (e.g. narrative notes, scanned documents)
•Not searchable at an aggregate level
•Difficult to retrieve and use in a timely manner

Oncology nurses at Flatiron are key stakeholders in working on this challenge everyday.
