The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) has announced collaboration with MEDITECH to integrate NCCN Chemotherapy Order Templates (NCCN Templates) into MEDITECH’s Web Electronic Health Record (EHR) as standard cancer treatment protocols for use at point of care. As part of the integration, MEDITECH’s Web EHR will provide clinicians direct access to the NCCN Templates and will link to NCCN.org and the corresponding NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines).
The information contained in the NCCN Templates enhances patient safety by empowering health care providers to standardize patient care, reduce medical errors, and anticipate and manage adverse events.
“MEDITECH’s collaboration with NCCN is a major part of the company’s strategy to help clinicians streamline oncology care to better treat their patients,” says Hoda Sayed-Friel, Executive Vice President of Strategy, MEDITECH in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be including these regimens into our standard content to enhance patient safety and help guide clinicians’ cancer treatment efforts by providing up-to-date, evidence-based standard protocols and best practices within MEDITECH’s Oncology Management solution.”
