Part of the Computers and Medicine book series (C+M)


The Oncology Clinical Information System (OCIS) is a comprehensive computing system that provides organized and complete medical information to physicians, nurses, medical students, and other health care providers at logical times in the patient’s management. Although implemented in a cancer center, the principles that have been used in its development and many of the applications that are in daily use are equally applicable to general medicine. Physicians caring for patients with cancer face common medical problems that are not specific to patients with cancer. Conversely, physicians in other medical specialties are concerned with the same data management and decision-making issues that confront oncologists.
