Cancer Services Quality Management

Regulations and compliance requirements for the cancer services sector have dramatically increased over the past few years. Multiple regulations, bodies and groups such as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), The Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2000, (IR(ME)R 2000), and the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA), all specify requirements for compliance and quality standards.

The historic management approach of fragmented systems, paper and manual processes, electronic documents, spreadsheets and email is inadequate and creates a crippling bureaucratic burden.
