Highlands Oncology Group Selects Flatiron Health OncoEMR® to Support Their Growing Practice

​​Flatiron Health today announced that Highlands Oncology Group, a comprehensive cancer center with 17 physicians in Fayetteville, Arkansas, selected OncoEMR® as their medical oncology electronic health record. Highlands Oncology Group chose OncoEMR because they needed a cloud-based medical oncology software solution that will be interoperable with their ARIA® radiation oncology information system by Varian Medical Systems, to meet the needs of their growing patient population and practice.

Last May, Flatiron Health and Varian Medical Systems announced a strategic alliance to offer a suite of cloud-based software solutions that support oncologists in delivering high quality care across the cancer care continuum. As one of the first practices using the ARIA system to implement Flatiron Health’s OncoEMR, Highlands Oncology Group will soon be able to enjoy interoperability between the two systems for maximum clinical workflow efficiency.

“We recently integrated radiation therapy at our practice and wanted to find a cloud-based, medical oncology EHR that was interoperable with our radiation oncology software in order to streamline operational efficiencies” said Eric Schaefer, MD, Highlands Oncology Group. “We chose OncoEMR because it could best meet our evolving practice needs.”

“Our goal is to provide the best cancer care using the latest, most advanced technology and research available,” said Eric Schaefer, MD, Highlands Oncology Group. “We have been participating in clinical trials for over 15 years and Flatiron’s approach to using data to better design treatments for patients and drive the clinical trials process was critical to our decision.”

OncoEMR is part of the Flatiron Health OncologyCloud™ software suite for cancer centers. The suite also includes OncoAnalytics®, a first-of-its-kind advanced analytics tool that unlocks data from multiple systems, allowing providers to access valuable insights spanning business, operational, clinical and financial metrics.
