The value of clinical decision support
Because patients need certainty.more
Advances in science and technology are changing virtually every facet of medical practice. But the benefits have also added daunting levels of complexity, making it increasingly difficult for healthcare professionals to be confident that they base their decisions on the latest information.
Digital tools such as clinical decision support (CDS) can help manage the exponentially growing medical information, workflow variability, and the dynamic nature of disease management across the care continuum in oncology.
Correlating data points - connecting systems - orchestrating workflows - providing insights
These cloud-based software solutions facilitate tumour board workflow logistics and more detailed case discussions from anyplace - enabling confident, timely and individualised treatment decisions in face-to-face or virtual tumour board reviews. For patients this may increase chances of being reviewed and starting therapy sooner. The result? More effective operations and truly personalised care.
Time is essential when you have a cancer diagnosis. Patients need answers, and digital tools can now help clinicians make decisions more quickly.
Over time, the thousands of data points patients create throughout their journey not only help identify changes in their health but also enable tracking of similar patient cohorts across institutions and geographies. This will eventually allow for comparison of outcomes as well as predictive measures through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. Digital solutions that can capture the performance of therapies have the potential to support value-based care models.

The growing availability, standardisation, and integration of data from disparate sources across systems and institutions raises new challenges. Successful digitalisation goes beyond implementing new technologies and tools, but has an impact on the broader healthcare infrastructure.
Transforming healthcare is a huge endeavour no one can do alone. This is why we partner with stakeholders across the industry to help shape change. With extensive experience in healthcare, we have gained deep expertise in handling confidential patient information and implementing clinically relevant systems and solutions in a highly regulated environment. This significantly contributes to the necessary evolutions of frameworks that enable sustainable digital healthcare.
