What is OHA?
Cancer treatment
center
Three locations in
Evansville
Treat many cancer
patients with
chemotherapy each
day
Chemotherapy Dosing
Current
– Dose and cycle information is stored on a 5 X 7 note
card
– Nurses mix drugs for each patient using the index card
– A paper flow sheet is used to determine if a patient can
receive the drug, and to record all dosing information
– Flow sheet is stored in the patient’s chart
Current Problems
Inefficient and very time consuming
Too great a chance for human error
No way to easily search through or cross
index data on the chemotherapy dosing
Project Goals
Give the nurses more time with the patients
Flow sheet must be as easy to use as the paper
version
Eliminate the need to enter the same data more
than once across the computer system
Automatically record as much data as possible
Store the information in a database that can
quickly access patient information and allow for
dose information to be easily compared
High Level Design
Implementation
