According to results from the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study (CCSS), telephone counseling from specially trained nurses more than doubled the likelihood that adult survivors of childhood cancer received recommended heart checks. (See the November 2014 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology)  The U.S. is home to at least 328,000 residents who were age 20 or younger when their cancer was discovered. With overall childhood cancer survival rates in the U.S. now approaching 80 percent, the ranks of childhood cancer survivors will continue to increase.

Here's How Cordata Oncology Can Help:

Beginning now*, tag newly affected patients with a history of childhood cancer in our Medical History Details Reminder Status Notes under the Medical History tab to remind your team that the patient has a hx of childhood cancer.  The notes can be as detailed or simple as you choose.  The patient's Medical History Note will queue in your Navigator Views and Milestone Queues.  Then, use the Appointments tab to assist with adding and tracking new cardiac consults for cardiomyopathy assessment...and you are on your way toward appropriately queuing up patients for this important cardiac screening. Voila!


*if you have a discreet list in Excel or comma delimited file, we can migrate a list into your database with Reminders for addition to your Navigator Views.  There is a one-time fee for this data migration, depending on complexity and volume of records.
