Creating a new world of medicine through real-world data and current research

The capacity to treat patients can improve with case management that includes holistic information and convenient access for all multidisciplinary team members.

A team effort

Cancer care engages multiple clinical specialties, but the process of collaborative decision-making is often not standardized and can be time-consuming.

Clinicians in a multidisciplinary team may spend hours coordinating logistics, preparing meetings, and compiling reports and patient files. Handwritten notes, radiology and pathology images, and medical information from public sources add to the data that can help direct treatment for each individual patient.

A healthcare ecosystem

Clinical decision support software — bold and innovative solutions that deploy data as a strategic and highly impactful asset — helps inform clinicians on personalized treatment decisions for each individual patient.

Technology-driven innovation holds the potential to improve our understanding of patients, enable the delivery of more convenient, individualized care1

navify Tumor Board and Clinical Decision Support apps aggregate real-world data, clinical trial information, medical and scientific research information, and clinical practice guidelines help healthcare systems close gaps in the patient journey.

Through integration with the electronic medical record, patient data such as tumor staging and medical history may be used to search available clinical trials and current literature to support discussions around treatment strategies. Connected resources also enhance the efficiency of tumor board administration, where specialists are empowered by leveraging data, evidence and technology to improve patient care decisions.
