Flatiron Health announced today that The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, a comprehensive community oncology practice with nine locations in the Fort Worth, Texas region, selected OncoEMR® as their medical oncology electronic health record solution to support long-term value-based care initiatives and meet the practice’s evolving technology needs.

“As one of the only remaining large, independent oncology practice’s in the Fort Worth area, we strive to stay on the cutting edge of oncology so we can provide our patients with the high quality, integrated care they deserve while meeting the new value-based care reporting requirements,” said Barry Russo, chief executive officer, The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. “Flatiron Health has the engineering expertise to innovate and adapt quickly with us, plus a level of oncology background that we have yet to see in other software companies.”

OncoEMR is one of the most advanced cloud-based electronic health records (EHR) currently available for medical oncology.
