Project Overview

Problem:

  • The complexity of cancer care continues to increase, with new drugs approved and biomarkers discovered each year.
  • Oncologists need decision support with access to up-to-date, evidence-based information to provide the best care for patients.
  • Combined with rising healthcare costs associated with expensive cancer therapies, oncology clinical pathway use is rapidly increasing, however it is cumbersome to maintain and share the pathways.  

Description:

  • An oncologist selects an oncology clinical pathway (computable guideline) from patient specific options presented in their workflow. 
  • The oncology clinical pathway is based on nationally accepted oncology guidelines, and has been transformed to a computable pathway using the HL7 FHIR Clinical Guidelines standard. 
  • Using mCODE data from the EHR, the oncology clinical pathway decision tree protocol presents treatment options to the oncologist, and allows the oncologist to select a treatment recommendation.

Target Outcome:

  • Computable oncology pathways based on nationally accepted guidelines, and the HL7 FHIR Clinical Guidelines and mCODE standards provide evidence based treatment recommendations to the oncologist. 

Value:

  • Evidence based treatment recommendations are available to oncologists.
  • Health systems benefit from aligning treatment regimens across the system, improving patient care.
  • Oncologist burden reduced as mCODE data from the EHR populates the oncology clinical pathway to facilitate decision making
