IRST in Meldola spreads knowledge thanks to Onit's Business Analytics

The Istituto Romagnolo per lo Studio dei Tumori "Dino Amadori" - IRST in Meldola is a center of excellence entirely dedicated to care, research and training in the field of oncology.

IRST's satisfaction with the performance of the On.Biomed software (already in use for clinical engineering activities) and its excellent references in the field of Business Intelligence were the two factors that allowed Onit to win the Institute's trust for the realization of an ambitious and important pilot project: a portal that collects and organizes data on the incidence of cancer in Emilia Romagna, public and consultable online even by the common citizen.

The expertise provided by Onit's Business Analytics unit led to the implementation of a data warehouse (DWH) with an associated power system, the creation of a properly structured calculation engine to support the creation of additional new indicators, and an ad hoc KPI visualization system, queryable for example by geographic area, sex and age group, and geolocated on a map.

The result? The new portal Tumor Registry of Emilia Romagna, a site published in July 2023 that illustrates the incidence of cancer in the territory, which can be consulted by anyone who wants to learn more about the subject.

But this is just the beginning. In fact, a second phase of the project is planned, which in the coming months will lead to the definition and putting online of survival and other important indicators.

A research project for the benefit of all, of which Onit should be particularly proud.
