Gray Oncology Solutions in collaboration with a multi-province consortium of 10 notable Canadian healthcare entities is set to co-develop the first patient-centric care management system for oncology. The consortium is composed of the Ottawa Hospital, the Princess Margaret Cancer Center, UHN, the Centre Hospitalier de l’Université de Montréal, the Jewish General Hospital, the Centre Intégré de Santé et de Services Sociaux de Laval, the McGill University Health Centre, the CIUSSS de l’Estrie – Sherbrooke, Southlake Regional Health Centre, the Canadian Cancer Society, and Gray Oncology Solutions.

This initiative was presented by the consortium through the AI for Healthcare – Call for Projects and selected through a highly competitive process by SCALE AI. 

The 2.9M$ project focuses on developing, deploying, and evaluating software to address three key challenges in oncology: the stochastic nature of patient flow, the difficulty of proactive capacity planning, and the coordination of multiple services that a single patient may require throughout their care trajectory. The multi-province consortium will use multiple algorithmic classes ranging from machine learning and statistical modeling for the prediction of patient flow to operations research algorithms that proactively determine the ideal set of resources required to sustain the predicted incoming patient flow. 

OROT and CIUSSS West Central Montreal are proud to be a part of the consortium.
