The software tools of hospital information system were used for development. There were surveyed 236 oncourological patients.</p><p><strong>Results. </strong>Forms of unitary and dynamic researches were developed for result visualization, interactive modules were developed for data complex analysis. The first results of QL assessment were received. The highest values were in role and social functions (medians were equal 100 points). Fatigue, pain and sleeplessness were disturbed patients most of all (medians — 33,3, 16,7 and 33,3 points respectively). The median of Global health status was not high, only 50 points.
