Varian and Nova Scotia Health have launched a partnership to drive the digital transformation of the health system's comprehensive oncology service line.
A unified, interconnected network of multidisciplinary oncology software and services supporting patient care across eight centres, including regional centres located all across the province, will be established as part of the five-year Oncology Transformation Project (OTP), which will build upon and integrate Nova Scotia Health's current Varian software capabilities.
Together with Varian, Nova Scotia Health will focus on resolving the haphazard interactions and manual procedures that affect patient treatment. The OTP will also go beyond cancer treatment in an effort to enhance health system coordination.
According to the terms of the agreement, Varian will provide Nova Scotia Health with a range of multi-disciplinary oncology solutions designed to improve patient care throughout the entire cancer care continuum, from screening to survivorship, and to facilitate communication between cancer patients and their healthcare professionals.
The agreement also covers the addition of InSightive™ Gen2, Varian's comprehensive analytics tool that enables clinic professionals to transform raw data into useful insights in order to make decisions more quickly and efficiently.
Additionally, this arrangement expands access to cutting-edge cancer treatment for patients across the province by combining the strength of Varian's Multi-Disciplinary Oncology Solutions portfolio, which includes medical technology as well as partnered clinical services.
