Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS) launched a new web site, ChemoOrders.com, to help doctors and nurses administer current chemotherapy protocols in a more accurate and efficient manner. The web site is available for free to medical professionals and the public.
ChemoOrders.com creates patient-specific chemotherapy orders and supporting documents based on physician or nurse-entered vital signs and disease parameters. An average order takes about one minute to enter and print.
“Cancer is actually 200 diseases that behave differently and require individualized protocols,” he said. “And those protocols can vary greatly among two patients with the same type of cancer,” says Dr. Bruce Feinberg–GCS president and CEO.
Traditionally, doctors have developed treatment regimens on a case-by-case basis, and without access to a current and comprehensive treatment guide.
In addition to chemotherapy order forms, the site also produces print-ready chemotherapy flow sheets, informed consents, and patient education materials.
ChemoOrders.com uses established peer-reviewed clinical guidelines to ensure that the most current disease protocols are outlined. Protocol selection and scientific content oversight are performed by a group of physicians, ONS-certified nurses and nurse practitioners, and pharmacists. All listed protocols are FDA approved, compendia listed, or both.
