Boston, MA - mTuitive's xPert for Pathology version 1.0.5 synoptic reporting solution has been certified by Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) authorizing them as a vendor that can assist Ontario hospitals with meeting CCO's 2008-2009 CAP/CS aligned data standards for pathology reporting.
Standardized pathology reporting increases the availability and consistency of cancer pathology information that is essential for treatment decisions, evaluation and research. Over the past two years, CCO has made substantial progress working with hospitals. In an effort to continue to support them, CCO has developed a process to certify specific vendor solutions against defined reporting standards. The certification of a vendor solution is the first step to validating that it can be implemented or enhanced to assist the hospitals in meeting the new standards.
mTuitive complies with the 2008-2009 CAP/CS aligned data standards developed by Cancer Care Ontario in conjunction with the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Cancer Committee, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Joint Committee on Cancer. The CAP checklists¹ for breast, lung, colorectal, prostate and endometrium were amended to include the mandatory pathological collaborative staging elements.
mTuitive's xPert for Pathology version 1.0.5 should be able to assist hospitals with meeting the new CCO reporting standards for cancer-related pathology reporting in Ontario.
"mTuitive is proud to be certified and given the opportunity to help support one of the most forward-thinking cancer organizations in the world," said mTuitive CEO John Murphy. We look forward to aiding CCO in attaining their current and future strategic goals.
