CMIO: â€œAllscripts will integrateÂ IntrinsiQ’s IntelliDoseÂ chemotherapyÂ management tool into its EHR product suite as a new offering for physician practices.
The Waltham, Mass.-based IntrinsiQâ€™s IntelliDose calculates and tracks the administration of chemotherapy treatments and will enable Allscripts’ multi-specialty and oncology clients to manage oncology patient care workflow, according to the company.
Under the agreement, oncology practices will work with Allscripts account managers to coordinate with implementation and training specialists from the IntelliDose team.Â Integration of IntelliDose into Allscripts tools will enable Allscripts clients to select the add-on program to navigate patient records across both systems, IntrinsiQ stated. â€œ
This sounds like an interesting concept. I tried looking for detailed information on IntelliDose, but really couldn’t find much. Based on information at the IntrinsiQ website it appears that IntelliDose is a clinical decision support system designed specifically for chemotherapy. Based on the description, IntelliDose does many of the same things that a pharmacy information system does, i.e. checks for â€œbody surface area limitations, patient allergies, and exceptional lab resultsâ€ in addition to reviewing â€œdosage variables such as ideal weight, serum creatinine, and creatinine clearance.â€ Sounds like a pharmacist.
