The goal is to help oncologists quickly identify the most appropriate cancer treatments, based on the unified view of the patient across diagnostic modalities and the embedded knowledge of Clinical Pathways.
Philips will leverage Dana-Farber Clinical Pathways to map cancer patients to the appropriate treatment options via its oncology informatics suite, which integrates radiology, pathology, genomics and EHR data to help scale precision medicine.
“Every cancer patient deserves the best possible care,” said Dana Farber CEO Laurie Glimcher, MD.
Cancer medicine is changing rapidly, and physicians are tasked with interpreting massive amounts of new information generated from publications and clinical trials,” Glimcher added.
Philips CEO Frans van Houten added that patient-centric care is critical to cancer treatments.
“Leveraging clinical knowledge and oncology informatics will help provide doctors with the clinical decision they need to provide the most effective care, based on patients’ genome,” he said.
