ClinicalPath offers current, evidence-based guidance at every decision point to help providers move toward the ‘single best’ treatment for each patient presentation
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) May 19, 2020
MedTech Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market, today announced that it has selected Elsevier’s ClinicalPath (formerly Via Oncology) as the winner of its “Best Computerized Decision Support Solution” award. This is the second consecutive year that Elsevier’s ClinicalPath solution has won the MedTech Breakthrough Award. Elsevier is a global leader in information analytics, specializing in science and health.
Elsevier’s ClinicalPath presents evidence-based oncology pathways embedded into the clinical workflow, and the associated analytics, to help healthcare providers make consistent, well-informed decisions for high quality cancer care. Committees of academic and community oncologists collaborate through a consistent, open process to develop the content for ClinicalPath based on current published evidence and their shared best practices.
“It’s an exciting time to be in oncology, but fast developments also make it challenging for providers to keep up with the latest research,” said John Danaher, MD, President, Global Clinical Solutions, Elsevier. “ClinicalPath offers current, evidence-based guidance at every decision point to help providers move toward the ‘single best’ treatment for each patient presentation. We support cancer centers with a predictable approach so they can standardize treatment, run successful clinical research programs and thrive in value-based care, on their path to optimal clinical and financial outcomes.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s fourth annual program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“Elsevier’s ClinicalPath is delivering a true ‘breakthrough’ in cancer care,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTech Breakthrough. “For example, in precision oncology, ClinicalPath helps physicians identify the appropriate biomarkers to test and offers companion treatment guidance. Institutions receive analytics on testing rates and adoption of recommended therapies to support quality programs and reimbursements. Most importantly, cancer patients benefit from opportunities to receive life-changing therapies. We see ClinicalPath as a game-changer, and MedTech Breakthrough sincerely congratulates Elsevier on their Best CDS Solution award.”
Today a growing network of over 2,500 oncologists use ClinicalPath for evidence-based decision support in their computerized workflow. ClinicalPath covers more than 97% of common cancer presentations in medical and radiation oncology to help standardize care; prompt orders for appropriate biomarker and genetic tests; connect patients to clinical trials; enable actionable insight into care patterns; and ultimately guide patient care through personalized treatment pathways.
