Automated Solution Ensures Seamless Cancer Reporting to NCI SEER Program Amidst Disruptions, Safeguarding Compliance and Continuity
Azra AI, a healthtech leader using artificial intelligence (AI) and workflow automation to accelerate the identification and treatment of cancer, is pleased to introduce SmartPath™. SmartPath is an innovative AI-powered solution that offers essential support to tumor registry teams within hospitals and healthcare facilities nationwide. In light of recent disruptions in the reporting of registry data from all the states participating in the National Cancer Institute’s (NCI) Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program, SmartPath emerges as a reliable alternative to ensure seamless operations. SmartPath streamlines the tedious and time-consuming process of casefinding and patient data abstraction, enabling healthcare professionals to focus on what matters most – providing quality patient care.
“We understand the immense challenges hospitals face such as staff burnout, the shortage of certified tumor registrars and razor-thin margins,” acknowledged Chris Cashwell, CEO and Founder of Azra AI. “Given the recent, unexpected disruption in reporting to the NCI SEER Program, we recognize the urgent need for a cost-effective tumor registry alternative that can be swiftly and seamlessly implemented, ensuring continuity and compliance during these trying times. Many hospitals have been negatively affected, and we stand ready to collaborate with them and any hospital looking to enhance their tumor registry workflows. Our commitment lies in going above and beyond to ensure hospitals can continue their vital operations. Empathy and readiness define our approach, and we are here to support hospitals in every way possible.”
The traditional methods of identifying and reporting cancer tumors have often been plagued by manual, resource-intensive tasks, making it challenging for healthcare institutions to keep up with the increasing demands of cancer data collection and analysis. SmartPath, which is used by hospitals throughout the country, directly addresses these challenges.
