The power of connection

ORIEN Member cancer centers working together to find connections in patients’ health information that advance cancer research

Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN) Members

The Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN) is a growing alliance of leading cancer centers committed to speeding up research through collaboration and access to shared patient data. The more diverse our patient population, the more connections we can make.

ORIEN Member cancer centers use the same Total Cancer Care® (TCC) research study to learn from patients' health information and develop new treatments.

The success of TCC begins with patients and depends on broad and active participation by all partners, comprised of research centers, academic institutions, and industry. All work together to meet the goals of TCC, with each Member cancer center consenting patients, collecting clinical data, and collecting samples.

ORIEN origins

The TCC research study was formed in 2006 by Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida. With the shared goal of enriching and growing the database to further promising research, ORIEN was founded in 2014 by Moffitt, M2GEN, and The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.

M2GEN functions as the operations center for ORIEN and the coordinating center for the ORIEN TCC research study.    

ORIEN TCC, patients, and researchers are working together to speed progress in finding better answers to treating cancer.
