Improvement of shared decision making and decision support
ozCAT started in 2013 and is one of the first projects developing distributed learning concept which led to the Personal Health Train (PHT). It has established a distributed learning network in New South Wales and is extending to other states and territories. The ozCAT consortium will join the Personal Health Train community to make sure the ozCAT and PHT solutions for distributed learning are interoperable. The ozCAT PHT implementation has been applied in lung cancer and head-and-neck cancer and is deployed in more than 4 hospitals.
Non-small cell lung and head-and-neck cancer decision support based on distributed learning over multi-center data.
Outcome prediction models for lung and head-and-neck cancer have been learned and validated across different Australian hospitals.
The ozCAT consortium is still working together and extending with centers in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia.
