LabCorp’s Oncology Care Module helps oncology practices measure performance against critical quality and cost benchmarks, including value-based care objectives. The solution consolidates clinically relevant patient and practice data points to provide a more detailed, holistic view of each patient. As part of LabCorp’s Care Intelligence application, the Oncology Care Module integrates securely and seamlessly with electronic health records and other practice management tools and systems. It combines clinical, claims, pharmacogenomics, and staging data; genetic and other clinical laboratory test results; and the patient’s Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Performance status in a format that is easy-to-use for busy physicians.

LabCorp’s Oncology Care Module provides clinicians with real-time access to critical information that can improve patient outcomes, manage costs, and optimize quality-of-life for patients. The solution also supports patient communications with their care team and allows for patient reported outcomes (ePRO) relevant to their care. Access to this data provides a more comprehensive picture of patient status than information captured through clinical visits alone. Additionally, the tool has the ability to identify patients who may qualify to participate in clinical studies of new treatments through Covance, LabCorp’s drug development business, as well as monitor the progress of patients who are participating in a study.

“LabCorp continues to look for more ways to improve outcomes for cancer patients through the unique combination of our capabilities in diagnostics, drug development, and technology,” said Dr. Brian Caveney, president of LabCorp Diagnostics. “Clinicians, patients, and managed care organizations are increasingly relying on data to identify new treatments, improve patient outcomes, and manage costs. Our Oncology Care Module brings together important information to meet those objectives and helps people make more informed decisions.”

“As new technologies transform cancer care, oncology practices need comprehensive support to run their operations efficiently and ensure patients receive quality care in today’s value-based care environment,” said Arthur Kapoor, chairman and chief executive officer at HealthEC. “We’re pleased to extend our collaboration with LabCorp and look forward to helping oncology providers optimize operations with advanced data aggregation and analytics solutions as the healthcare industry transitions from volume to value.”
