Abstract: Current demands of the healthcare industry require the use of information systems (IS) and information technologies (IT) to deliver care that is safe, patient centered, timely, efficient, and equitable. Successful development, implementation, and use of IT applications requires proper consideration of the hierarchy as well as synergy of each industry. In this work, a reliable secure and administrative cloud platform OncologyQuest has been developed to enhance the clinical service in radiation oncology. A case study used was automation of information data entry, reviewing, auditing and clinical approval cycles in radiation oncology intraoperative procedure of Prostate radioactive permanent seeds implant. Secure login and proper authorization using administration function for authenticating end users and granting them access to authorized services on the platform. Automation of data entry, reviewing, auditing and clinical approval cycles in radiation oncology intraoperative procedure has been achieved. That automation provides proper clinical approvals control to clinical multidisciplinary practitioners. OncologyQuest eased the dissemination of information during the procedure, enhanced information integration between oncology practitioners. Reliability and effectiveness of chartless documentation, successfully allowed appropriate communication regardless of geographic vicinity before, during and after the procedure.
