Boston, MA - In April, as part of the Ontario Synoptic Reporting project, Ross Memorial Hospital went live with mTuitive's xPert for Pathology synoptic reporting system. Today, it was announced that Ross Memorial has reached 100% compliance with the 2008-2009 College of American Pathologist/Collaborative Stage-aligned data standard. The current standard, Phase I, includes five disease sites: Breast, lung, prostate, endometrium and colorectal. Standardized pathology reporting increases the availability and consistency of cancer pathology information that is essential for treatment decisions, evaluation, and research.
mTuitive complies with the 2008-2009 CAP/CS aligned data standard developed 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 pathologic collaborative staging elements.
xPert for Pathology interfaces with all available Pathology and Laboratory Information Systems on the market which lends itself to wide use throughout the province. Other Ontario hospitals utilizing mTuitive's xPert for Pathology synoptic reporting solution to meet the data standard include Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre, The Scarborough Hospital, North York General Hospital, Lakeridge Health, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, Rouge Valley Health System, Bluewater Health, Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Cambridge Memorial Hospital and Sudbury Regional Hospital.
