Abstract

A 12-year medical informatics project is described whose goal was to create a distributable computer-based service to support the identification of hereditary cancer patterns and recommend concomitant protocols of patient care surveillance. Key elements of the successful implementation strategy are described as the service has been successfully utilized at more than a dozen other cancer centers. Multi-year clinical results are presented from the implementation of this service.
