MOCIS- a information system to support the shared medical oncology care delivery model


The NCCP recognised that the hub and spoke organisation for designated cancer centres and satellites needed a comprehensive oncology information system solution for medical oncology and haemato- oncology which could be configured for to support the multi-site care model and the multi-disciplinary team mode of working. With the introduction of MOCIS medical staff will have access in a single national system to a patients’ medical oncology and haemato-oncology details. MOCIS will facilitate more efficient and comprehensive care.

A series of meetings commenced in late January 2017 which continued through the first quarter. Agreement on a standard workflow reached in May 2017 and a gap analysis was concluded in June 2017.


The Build Stage continued through the summer of 2017 and MOCIS 1.0 was released in November 2017. MOCIS will enable a multi-disciplinary management of a patients chemotherapy and the configured workflow below is supported by specialist professional groups such as MOCIS Nursing Documentation Standardisation Group and the Pharmacy Compounding Advisory Group.
