About Dr. Amy C Moreno
Dr. Moreno specializes in the management of head and neck cancers with a growing interest in expanding the clinical applications of proton therapy and using highly advanced image-guided techniques such as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for the treatment of skull base tumors or recurrent cancers in the re-irradiation setting.
Her research interests are focused on clinical informatics or the improvement of electronic data capture, information retrieval and exchange, and enhancement of clinical knowledge application in our clinics. She is currently in the process of obtaining ABPM board subspecialty certification in Clinical informatics and is involved in multiple departmental committees that focus on the enhancement of existing or developing health information technologies. Her long-term goal is to develop applications and oncology-specific clinical decision support systems that integrate electronically captured patient reported outcomes to improve the quality, efficacy, and efficiency of multidisciplinary cancer care.
