REVIEWER: Eric Hill, director of IT services for Wilshire Oncology.

BACKGROUND: As one of the leading cancer treatment centers in the U.S., Wilshire Oncology Medical Group operates seven clinical treatment centers throughout the Los Angeles area dedicated exclusively to the most advanced, community-based cancer care. The company's leading-edge treatment practices are supported by its state-of-the-art IT network that includes fully electronic patient medical records, as well as a group-wide practice management system delivered as a software as a service solution. Between these critical Internet-dependent applications and the company's standard business communication needs, Wilshire Oncology has successfully leveraged the power of instantaneous data transfer to facilitate the most efficient treatment for its patients - patients for whom time is an exceptionally precious commodity. A delay in the receipt of critical test results or in the transmission of prescriptions due to an IT failure can directly impact patients' care and comfort.
