Swiss Personalized Oncology (SPO)
SPO will harmonize a common, defined set of clinical parameters (including diagnosis, prescription, intervention, and treatment response evaluation) across the SPHN data warehouse infrastructures of all Swiss University Hospitals. Eventually, the essential data will be captured from electronic medical records within the routine clinical flow. Non-university hospitals will participate in SPO through a web-based system that will enable upload of the essential, encrypted data and provide feedback on the frequency, treatment, and response rate of patients with a similar profile. In coordination with other SPHN projects, SPO will further standardize the molecular profiling of tumor biopsies enabling research to identify predictive biomarkers. Finally, we will set up an expert panel of SPO members to form a Swiss Molecular Tumor Board acting as a reference for the entire country for second level analysis of complex cases.
