The National Radiotherapy Capacity Planning Tool (R-PORT) is the response of the National Cancer Action Team (NCAT) to radiotherapy service improvement and robust scenario and business planning. It is an effective and free to use web-based tool designed to
encourage national best practice. It is also intended to facilitate collaboration between providers and commissioners in achieving both service improvement and appropriate investment in radiotherapy service delivery.
R-PORT is being built around simulation logic that takes into account all resources, both personnel and equipment; as well as patient demand and seasonality. Current service data are pre-populated from existing systems (e.g. RTDS), thereby saving the user
both time and effort and ensuring data accuracy.
R-PORT includes the following primary functionalities:
- Current service analysis – current service data are imported into R-PORT, providing users with an overview of their current performance and providing them with the necessary reports to identify areas of improvement
- Scenario modelling - users are able to test unintended consequences of making changes to their service, as well as uncontrollable changes in patient demand and mix. Scenario modelling enables better decisions and improves the likelihood of true service improvement
- Financial analysis - a financial module is included in R-PORT, allowing users to understand their existing costs and assess the cost impact of their simulated changes
- Reporting – reports are dynamic and flexible allowing users to easily compare the results of different simulations. They report at both a local and nationally aggregated level
