Rabbit Healthcare Systems is pleased to announce it has been selected to participate in the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s EHR Pilot Program to determine whether clinical decision support tools can be effectively utilized by oncologists through the incorporation of clinical guidelines tools into EHR products.
Rabbit Healthcare Systems was one of ten EHR vendors selected to demonstrate ASCO’s EHR Guidelines during the 2008 EHR Lab at ASCO’s Annual Meeting. Following that event, Rabbit Healthcare Systems demonstrated interest and capabilities to take ASCO’s Clinical Guideline Tools out of the lab and into a practice setting with existing oncology providers.
“Rabbit Healthcare Systems is excited about this opportunity to partner with ASCO in this Clinical Decision Support program, with the shared goal of improving patient safety and care.” – Brad Vassberg, CEO/President Rabbit Healthcare Systems
Vendors will submit scheduled responses to specific usage, training, support, and content questions during the next 12 months. All responses will be confidential and ASCO, in its sole discretion, will determine whether or how to utilize the results. In this pilot, ASCO hopes to find solutions to inconsistencies in clinical decision support functions by providing the same set of guideline support tools to vendors who have demonstrated they can incorporate these tools into their oncology solutions.
