CHRISTUS Health is a not-for-profit health system with locations in four states in the USA. Six comprehensive cancer centers treat more than 2,000 patients annually. Our partnership has helped the health system develop a higher-quality, more efficient network.

This multi-year Advanced Oncology Solution partnership from Varian, a Siemens Healthineers Company, has accelerated the adoption of tech-enabled radiation-oncology services. These include an integrated oncology network platform for secure collaboration between oncologists across the health system, paperless forms to optimize the electronic health record, cloud-based remote and on-site treatment planning, and coding and compliance review services.

This end-to-end oncology engagement has offered CHRISTUS Health ongoing support and maintenance on system technology at seven radiation oncology centers across Texas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. It also fostered the development of hybrid remote and onsite treatment planning and quality assurance program, while working directly with local providers to ensure excellence in patient care. Similarly, the deployment of cloud-based services has increased efficiencies and reduced costs across the entire network.

The Challenge

  • Optimize Clinical Operation: Deploying the latest medical software and technology-enabled processes to improve operational efficiency.
  • Increase Efficiency: Ensure budgetary security and streamline hybrid operations.
  • Drive Digital Transformation: Leveraging digitalization to provide high-quality patient care.

The Result

  • Decreased costs and overhead
  • Increased quality and efficiency
  • Standardized clinical operations across the network
  • Achieved operational and financial stability

This partnership offers our patients access to more advanced technology and the clinical benefits from centralized management of our oncology network. This improves quality and enhances operational efficiencies by leveraging the Oncology-as-a-Service approach to providing comprehensive solutions.
