Description: Aria Oncology Information System (OIS) is a comprehensive treatment record verification and image management system that aggregates patient data into a single, organized, oncology-specific Electronic Medical Record (EMR). This technology enables users to digitize paper charts and oversee all aspects of oncology patients. Aria OIS combines radiology, medical, and surgical information that supports the patient treatment stages, from initial diagnosis through post-treatment follow-up. Additionally, Aria OIS provides access to patient schedules, prescriptions, laboratory results, and toxicity profiles to assist healthcare providers in assessing a patient`s response to treatment, and uses this information to inform future treatment decisions.

This product uses the Varian System Database to store data, which is a Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server database. A Health Level Seven (HL7) interface is used to transfer data between the System Database and other third party systems. Also, Aria OIS has the ability to save data to local hard drives, online storage devices, or Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM)-compliant Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS).

Users must ensure sensitive data is properly protected in compliance with all VA regulations. Prior to use of this technology, users should check with their supervisor, Information Security Officer (ISO), Facility Chief Information Officer (CIO), or local Office of Information and Technology (OI&T) representative to ensure that all actions are consistent with current VA policies and procedures prior to implementation.
