  • Washington University leads national effort to improve radiation therapy for U.S. veterans

    02.17.2016

    New program will monitor quality and safety of radiation therapy at VHA centers nationwide.

    By Julia Evangelou Strait

    Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has been selected to lead national efforts to improve and standardize radiation therapy for veterans with cancer.

    The goal is to ensure that veterans across the U.S. receive the same high-quality radiation therapy at any of the 40 Veterans Health Administration (VHA) radiation oncology centers nationwide. Working with the American Society for Radiation Oncology, Washington University radiation oncologists — members of Siteman Cancer Center — are developing a system to provide continuous feedback on the progress, quality and safety of each veteran’s cancer therapy. The VHA, an arm of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, is the country’s largest integrated health-care system, serving more than 8 million veterans each year.

    “We are pleased to be taking a lead role in managing this program,” said Jeff M. Michalski, MD, the Carlos Perez Distinguished Professor of Radiation Oncology and a member of Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. “We have significant experience working with the National Cancer Institute to provide platforms for assessing quality and standards of care for patients, and we are excited to work with the American Society for Radiation Oncology to bring that experience to bear on behalf of our nation’s veterans.”

    Along with surgery and chemotherapy, radiotherapy is a major treatment method for a variety of cancer types. About 60 percent of all cancer patients receive some form of radiation therapy.

    The new program is called the Radiation Oncology Practice Assessment Program. In the first year, radiation oncologists will set up the infrastructure required to evaluate quality of care for veterans undergoing treatment for lung and prostate cancers. To provide detailed evaluations for individual patients, the program will rely on new information technologies that will draw on the VHA’s electronic medical record system as well as treatment management systems that control and track how radiation is delivered to each patient. Much of the software that will enable this new reporting system was developed by Radialogica, a St. Louis-based health-care information technology company co-founded by Washington University faculty.

    The new program will provide VHA radiation oncologists with detailed analyses of their patients’ treatments, compared with national standards. The feedback also will include traditional measures of cancer therapy outcomes, including patient survival and tumor recurrence. The aim is to provide oncologists with complete and consistent snapshots of each patient’s therapy and response to the treatment on a continuous basis.

    Once the new program is fully in place, VHA radiation oncologists will receive continuously updated electronic reviews of each patient’s cancer evaluation, treatment and outcome.

    The new automated system goes well beyond the current periodic review process, according to the developers. Instead of analyzing physician performance, the new system focuses on the patient, allowing doctors to see how changes in clinical practice, radiation planning, delivery technology and radiation dose prescription impact the success of a patient’s therapy. “We are pleased to be working with leading organizations on this innovative program, the first of its kind nationwide,” said Maureen McCarthy, MD, Veterans Affairs acting assistant deputy undersecretary for health and patient-care services. “Our veterans deserve nothing less.”

    Washington University School of Medicine’s 2,100 employed and volunteer faculty physicians also are the medical staff of Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals. The School of Medicine is one of the leading medical research, teaching and patient-care institutions in the nation, currently ranked sixth in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Through its affiliations with Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals, the School of Medicine is linked to BJC HealthCare.

    Siteman Cancer Center, ranked among the top cancer treatment centers by U.S. News & World Report, also is one of only a few cancer centers in the U.S. to receive the highest rating of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Comprising the cancer research, prevention and treatment programs of Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Siteman is Missouri’s only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and the state’s only member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.

  • Radialogica Announces Agreement to Provide Medical Registry for Proton Therapy Treatment

    12.01.2015

    Radialogica, a healthcare analytics company focused on radiation therapy for cancer patients, announced an agreement with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis to develop and manage a multi-institutional registry of medical data for cancer patients treated with proton therapy. The registry will be utilized by a consortium of proton therapy centers organized by Washington University that will contribute clinical information and outcomes data to establish the efficacy, cost-effectiveness and value of proton treatment.

    Clinicians at Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine initiated proton therapy service in December 2013 and have treated more than 250 adult and pediatric patients with a wide variety of complex tumors.

    The proton therapy registry will capture a range of de-identified clinical information for consented patients regarding their diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. The platform will further support the acquisition of patient treatment plans and related medical imaging and dosimetry data, providing insight into practice patterns and response assessment.

    “We are excited to launch the proton therapy registry and enable members of the proton community to work collaboratively to capture treatment and outcomes data,” said Jeffrey Bradley MD, Director of the S. Lee Kling Proton Therapy Center. “Combining clinical information, patient treatment plans and dosimetry data, and follow-up data will help advance our understanding of dose response, inform the development of treatment guidelines, and provide a foundation for evidencing the effectiveness and value of proton therapy.”

    “We are delighted to partner with Washington University, Siteman Cancer Center and other members of the proton therapy community for the benefit of cancer patients,” said Andrew Cowen, Chief Executive Officer of Radialogica. “Proton therapy offers the promise of more targeted radiation delivery with fewer treatment-related side effects, and the potential for delivering superior patient outcomes while reducing the lifetime care and cost of cancer survivorship. We’re excited to leverage Radialogica’s technology and analytics platform to support this important work.”

  • Radialogica Partners with the V.A. to Improve Care for Veterans With Cancer

    11.18.2015

    The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today announced a new Radiation Oncology Practice Assessment (ROPA) program to leverage recent advances in information technology to improve radiation therapy cancer care for our nation’s Veterans.

    VA is working with the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), Washington University and Radialogica to provide radiation oncologists for the first time with continuous feedback on the progress of cancer therapy.

    “We are pleased to be working with this country’s leading-class organizations on this innovative program, the first of its kind nationwide. Our Veterans deserve nothing less,” said Dr. Maureen McCarthy, VA acting assistant deputy undersecretary for health and patient care services.

    Radiation is one of the three major treatments for cancer along with surgery and chemotherapy, with about 60% of cancer patients receiving radiation therapy. In recent years, there have been substantial clinical and technical advances in radiation oncology, resulting in new regimens with increased survival and improved quality of life.

    Under ROPA, data will be abstracted from the VA’s highly sophisticated electronic medical record (EMR) system and the treatment management systems used to control radiation therapy delivery. Feedback reports will be provided to VA radiation oncologists with a detailed analysis of each patient treatment compared against national standards. Combined with the traditional cancer outcome measures of recurrence and patient survival, this assessment will provide the oncologist with a complete picture of the accuracy of each patient’s therapy and the patient’s response to therapy.

    Washington University is excited to take the lead role in managing the program. “We have significant experience working with the National Cancer Institute to provide the platform we will use for these assessments. We are excited to bring that experience to bear on this landmark project on behalf of our nation’s Veterans,” said Jeff Michalski, MD, Washington University’s vice-chair of radiation oncology. “We are also pleased to engage a local radiation oncology informatics company, Radialogica LLC, who will provide a platform and services for data security, extraction and management.”

    In the first year of the project, ASTRO’s disease-site specific experts will review measures for prostate and lung cancers, identifying metrics from the EMR to assess each one. “ASTRO is deeply committed to improving the quality of cancer care for our Veterans and all Americans. Our cancer experts are enthusiastic about this new opportunity to better measure and enhance radiation delivery with the goal of producing high quality patient outcomes,” said Bruce D. Minsky, MD, FASTRO, chair of ASTRO’s Board of Directors.

    Once ROPA is fully implemented, VA radiation oncologists will receive continuously updated electronic peer reviews of each patient’s cancer evaluation, treatment and treatment outcome. Currently, VA hospitals, similar to community hospitals, use traditional, sporadic peer-reviews in a process referred to as On-going Professional Peer Evaluation (OPPE). ROPA peer reviews go well beyond the traditional OPPE and practice accreditation to create comprehensive, patient-centered reports in a web-based environment. VA radiation oncologists will see how changes in their clinical practice impact the success of each Veteran’s cancer treatment.
