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 HIT tools that include the NCCN Guidelines®, NCCN Compendium®, NCCN Biomarkers Compendium™, and NCCN Templates®.


Private payers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are increasingly interested in evidence demonstrating greater consistency of cancer care and predictability of costs. Value Pathways powered by NCCN, only available through Clear Value Plus software, aim to help oncologists provide the highest quality treatment.
