QOOL

Supporting Multidisciplinary Care

QOOL provides cancer teams with tools that support routine and standard data capture, information sharing with a patient centric focus and analysis of cancer data for quality and safety, and research to promote excellence in cancer care.

 

How does QOOL support cancer teams?

Multidisciplinary Teams

QOOL is a web-based system which supports cancer multidisciplinary teams by assisting meeting preparation, communication and documentation of essential clinical information such as diagnosis, cancer stage and recommended treatment plans. QOOL provides a centralised platform of patient data for multiple users, accessible anywhere, anytime.

Care Coordination

QOOL supports cancer care coordination by providing a module for referrals to care coordinators, psychosocial and clinical care coordination of patients, communication between facilities and data collection for the monitoring of care coordination.

Researchers

QOOL provides a project module which supports clinicians with data collection for research and quality activities. QOOL allows researchers to make use of centralised data from Queensland Oncology Repository (QOR) and provides pre-populated patient data.  The module assists with management of patients within projects and purpose built data extraction is available.

WHAT IS QOOL-DASH?

QOOL–Dash is our latest tool and brings together up-to date data from QOOL to monitor MDT activity, data quality and for the first time provide clinical indicators including treatment and patient outcomes, to assist MDTs to evaluate the effectiveness of their service.

 

QOOL-DASH BENEFITS?

Queenslanders with cancer | Clinicians and cancer teams

QOOL-Dash turns the QOOL MDT data collection into bite-size chunks of information which support QOOL teams to monitor patient and health system outcomes at a local level.  Building on the development of clinical indicators by the Partnership Sub-committees, QOOL-Dash provides individual MDTs with ready-built analysis such as:

  • Days from diagnosis to surgery
  • Surgical mortality – 30 days, 90 days, in-hospital
  • Surgical survival – 1 and 2 year
  • Systemic and radiation therapy treatment

Individual team results are compared with the state-wide population averages to support monitoring of variation in patient outcomes and system processes.

Identified patient data is available for export to excel for further quality and safety audit and research.

Access to QOOL-Dash is based on your secure QOOL login and allows you to review your MDT data. Just look for the link in QOOL or go direct to QOOL-Dash
