MOCIS- a information system to support the shared medical oncology care delivery model

 MOCIS 1

The NCCP recognised that the hub and spoke organisation for designated cancer centres and satellites needed a comprehensive oncology information system solution for medical oncology and haemato- oncology which could be configured for to support the multi-site care model and the multi-disciplinary team mode of working. With the introduction of MOCIS medical staff will have access in a single national system to a patients’ medical oncology and haemato-oncology details. MOCIS will facilitate more efficient and comprehensive care.

The Design Stage objectives involved oncology nurses, doctors, pharmacists and hospital administration stakeholder groups to define a standard workflow with the contractor. A series of meetings commenced in late January 2017 which continued through the first quarter. Agreement on a standard workflow reached in May 2017 and a gap analysis was concluded in June 2017.

 

The Build Stage continued through the summer of 2017 and MOCIS 1.0 was released in November 2017.
