At Radformation, we thought about how chart checks might work if they had evolved at the same pace as the rest of radiation oncology. We concluded that most checking should be automated, allowing physicists to focus on high-level checks that require clinical experience rather than verifying that the planned and delivered gantry angles match. We didn’t want users to have to hunt down problems; we wanted to highlight problems so that physicists can work on solutions. Finally, we weren’t satisfied with checking charts once every 5 fractions. We wanted to know about errors immediately after each treatment fraction.
Radformation is excited to introduce ChartCheck, a modern approach to chart checking. ChartCheck is an active monitoring software that enables automatic treatment evaluation for routine physics checks. It begins verifying the patient’s chart minutes after treatment records are recorded back to your ARIA database and runs verification checks using data from prescriptions, plans, treatment fields, imaging, and documentation. Checks include 35+ recommended items from TG-275 and useful features like control charts. ChartCheck also looks at your treatment and imaging scheduling to ensure that you are ready for all upcoming fractions. The software presents the information in an organized, digestible format.
ChartCheck will be ready for clinical release in the fall. Get in touch with us to learn more about how ChartCheck simplifies weekly physics review workflows.
