AQUA has partnered with the software development company FIGmd to produce a program that can automate the process of figuring out data directly from the electronic medical record (EMR) to minimize the data entry burden. Urology is the third specialty to launch a registry based on the FIGmd platform, after cardiology and ophthalmology.
The increasing focus on clinical measurements, the need for large data sources, and population health management have raised new questions that are particularly pertinent to cancer care, such as how to organize the data in a meaningful way, and how to translate the “big data” to the individual patient. Amy Abernethy, MD, PhD, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President, Oncology, Flatiron Health, NY, had spent years at Duke University’s Cancer Institute and has recently joined Flatiron Health with the goal of finding solutions to these questions. OPM asked Dr Abernethy to discuss the implications of big data for oncologists and oncology practice administrators.
