Enter a radiation therapy treatment

Required information

Before you enter the treatment plan, ensure that you have all the required information. You'll need the following:

  • Cancer type
  • ICD-10 code
  • Diagnosis information
  • Delivery method CPT codes, including the following:
    • Standard external beam
    • Intensity modulated radiation treatment (IMRT)
    • Brachytherapy
  • Image guided radiation therapy (IGRT), gating, and hyperthermia codes

For radiation therapy treatment plans, include only the codes associated with treatment delivery. To receive approval for planning and simulation codes, contact the payer directly.

Note: If you include the planning and simulation codes, we display them on the treatment plan summary for information only. You must contact the payer to get them approved.

Radiation therapy checklist

To gather the information, use an order that the physician prepares, or print the radiation therapy checklist for the physician or nurse to complete.

To print the radiation therapy checklist, click Radiation Therapy Checklist on the Eviti Connect for Oncology home page or use this link: Radiation therapy checklist.

Treatment plan steps

The system guides you through the following steps to enter the treatment plan.

The information that we ask you to provide may vary by payer.

  1. Find the patient.
  2. Find the matching radiation therapy regimen.
  3. Verify the radiation treatment details.
  4. Verify the diagnosis details.
  5. Enter the treatment dates.
  6. Review and submit the treatment plan.

As you enter the treatment plan, if it deviates from evidence-based guidelines, you see the Medical review required screen. From this screen, you can review the deviations and fix any data entry errors.

If the treatment plan deviates because the physician prescribed a different treatment, you must provide the required documentation for our medical team to review.
