National Comprehensive Cancer Network, McKesson Specialty Health, and the US Oncology Network Announce Plans for Integration with Elekta and Varian

National Comprehensive Cancer Network, The US Oncology Network, and McKesson Specialty Health are pleased to announce agreements to provide future integration with Elekta and Varian that will enhance the ability to provide cancer patients with evidence-based quality care. By integrating with two leading oncology information systems -- Elekta's MOSAIQ(R) and Varian's Aria(R) -- the power of Clear Value Plus will be improved for practices using those platforms. Value Pathways Powered by NCCN, which are incorporated into the Clear Value Plus software, will expand next year to include radiation oncology. These clinical practice guidelines are jointly developed by McKesson Specialty Health, The US Oncology Network, and NCCN to consider efficacy and cost when evaluating treatment options in radiation oncology, building upon the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines(R)) and The US Oncology Network's Level I Pathways. Clear Value Plus, a first-of-its-kind clinical quality and regimen support system, allows physicians to access transparent, evidence-based clinical content at the point of care. It is fully embedded into McKesson Specialty Health's iKnowMed Generation 2SM EHR and will be integrated with MOSAIQ and Aria. The agreements to integrate the Elekta and Varian oncology information systems with the Clear Value Plus platform in an open, standards-based integration of technology will provide physicians with access to quality support and reporting solutions, as well as Value Pathways treatment options. Through Value Pathways, physicians can gain access to national best practices for optimal patient care and value-based outcomes that are grounded in clinical evidence and the NCCN Guidelines(R).
