Optimizing treatment through clinical practice standards


Clinical practice guidelines are a starting point to personalized healthcare — demonstrating step-by-step decision-making that can be shared with clinicians, hospital administrators, patients and payers.

Initiating standardized patient care

Clinical practice guidelines have long helped physicians choose therapies that medical research and practice support. But the frequent changes and intricacies of these guidelines can make applying them challenging.

Attesting to guideline consideration no longer requires printing relevant guidelines, circling helpful advice and scanning pages for upload to the electronic medical record system.

Choosing the relevant guidelines

With NAVIFY® Guidelines, a clinical decision support app for NAVIFY Tumor Board, oncologists can choose the relevant National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) and pin them to a tumor board presentation before a multidisciplinary conference.

In fact, use of NAVIFY Guidelines app prior to or during a tumor board meeting eliminates the stress of referencing external sources and manually documenting guidelines consultation for hospital administrators’ quality metrics.

Using the app:

  • Navigate to tumor-specific guidelines or use patient information to pull the relevant NCCN Guidelines into view in NAVIFY Tumor Board workflow.
  • Choose a starting point or chapter to see step-by-step decisions or a decision tree to guide care path determination.
  • Check off steps to document adherence to clinical practice guidelines or enter rationale for deviation from the prescribed care.
  • Update patient paths as clinical practice guideline revisions become available.

Documenting adherence

NAVIFY Tumor Board users may add a rationale for nonadherence and unique decisions in free-text fields within each step or milestone.

  • Documentation of either adherence or deviation supports the credibility of clinicians and their institutions, as well as the credibility of those decisions.
  • NAVIFY Guidelines app effectively hands physicians appropriate information, specific to each patient’s tumor location, stage and particulars.
  • The delivery of NCCN Guidelines to the patient and the primary care provider or general practitioner alleviates physician stress and can help allay patient fears.
