Organization Versus Workspace Collections

What's the Difference?

Collections allow you to organize patients into logical cohorts that share similar prescriptions, dosimetric goals, or other common characteristics. Collections let you build population scorecards and population DVHs to assess performance across many patient plans. These collections can be defined at the level of a single workspace, or they can span across several workspaces.

A collection that is defined at the level of a single workspace is called a workspace collection. Only patients belonging to a given workspace can be added to a workspace collection for that workspace. If you only have one organization or you only need to analyze population statistics across a single workspace, a workspace collection will be able to meet your needs.

Sometimes, however, you may wish to analyze population statistics across several workspaces. A collection defined at the organization level that can have representations in many workspaces is called an organization collection. An organization collection can be configured with as many workspaces as you wish, and any patient from one of those workspaces may be added to the collection.

Creating an Organization Collection

  1. Select the Collections module from the main navigation on the left.
  2. Select All Workspaces from the workspace selector.
  3. Press the Create Organization Collection button, which is aligned to the right of the large toolbar at the top of the page.
  4. Enter a unique collection Name and a Description. The name must be unique across all organization collections.
  5. Press the Create button to create the collection.

Note: You must have the Collections Write permission at the organization level to create organization collections.

Creating a Workspace Collection

  1. Select the Collections module from the main navigation on the left.
  2. Select the workspace in which to define a collection using the workspace selector.
  3. Press the Create Workspace Collection button, which is aligned to the right of the large toolbar at the top of the page.
  4. Enter a unique collection Name and a Description. The name must be unique across the collections within the workspace.
  5. Press the Create button to create the collection.

Note: You must have the Collections Write permission for a workspace to create workspace collections for that workspace.
