DELIVERING ON A DREAM.
ONCO Inc. was founded in 1984 by a physician with a dream. Radiation Oncologist, Dr. Ted Williamson envisioned an oncology data management system that was based on truly open access, unlimited flexibility, and outstanding customer support. All with one goal in mind: saving lives. A year later, that dream became reality.
In 1985, ONCO introduced the first network registry system. A Windows version of the registry software ONCOLOG was released in 1998 and offers unparalleled flexibility to add unlimited user-defined fields of any type and create user-defined data-sets. This version of ONCOLOG combined the benefits of open client access with true, enterprise-wide operation.
Protocol Data Manager, released in 2003 and developed in conjunction with one of the leading university research hospitals in the country, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia tracks all protocol related tasks and activities while providing a complete list of activities for patients and Clinical Research Associates. Staying true to the vision of flexibility, open access, and superior customer support; Protocol Data Manager provides comprehensive reporting, search, and financial tracking capabilities and is maintained by one of the most experienced support teams in the industry.
In order to meet the needs of a growing client base with varied needs, ONCO’s innovative team worked to develop electronic solutions to transform work flow processes in the registry. In 2005, ONCO introduced Casefinidng / Importing, QuickLog, and DeathLog Modules. These enhancements to the existing software streamline processes electronically and eliminate many of the manual processes plaguing Oncology Data Management Systems today. Implementation of these modules directly impacts employee productivity and efficiency.
ONCO partnered with Varian Medical Systems in 2005 and has become the only registry software vendor to provide an extensive interface with the ARIA Electronic Medical Record system. This interface allows users to automatically import demographic and disease information from the ARIA system.
In 2007, ONCO introduced the Breast Outcomes Database. This database takes full advantage of our extensive clinical and technical expertise to collect and manage comprehensive data specific to Breast Cancer for analysis. In addition to basic screening, diagnostic, and treatment information, centers can collect an unlimited number of additional data elements to meet specific needs. Even patients without a definitive diagnosis of cancer, but a high risk, can be monitored and followed utilizing this database
Today, ONCO continues to be at the forefront of the field – developing innovative software applications to meet the constantly evolving needs of oncology data management. Led by a management team with decades of experience in the field, ONCO will continue to expand the realm of what is possible and build new ways to utilize Oncology Data to help in the fight against Cancer.
