NCCN and Health Information Technology Spotlight
By Christine MacCracken, MSHEd, BSN, Senior Director, Business Insights, Editor-in-Chief
The NCCN eBulletin editorial staff is pleased to continue our HIT Spotlight series to provide an overview of current official NCCN Licensees for use of NCCN Content in Health Information Technology (HIT), such as the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®), the NCCN Drugs & Biologics Compendium (NCCN Compendium®), the NCCN Biomarkers Compendium™, the NCCN Chemotherapy Order Templates (NCCN Templates®), and the NCCN Guidelines for Patients®. NCCN works with organizations through permissions and licensing arrangements to permit the use of NCCN Content in commercial products.
This week, we are highlighting NCCN Licensees that utilize the NCCN Guidelines® or NCCN Guidelines for Patients® in tools for patients and providers.
