May 15, 2015 — McKesson Specialty Health announced the availability of Clear Value Plus – Guideline Explorer to iPad users. The Guideline Explorer app is a mobile reference tool that gives users access to evidence-based cancer protocols based on patient attributes.

Available for download on the Apple App Store at no cost, the Guideline Explorer app provides users with an easy-to-use interface for exploring patient-specific treatment options based on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines) and Value Pathways powered by NCCN. Current Clear Value Plus users can access the complete range of evidence-based treatment options and see all treatment choices that are highlighted as part of the Value Pathways powered by NCCN. New iPad users can navigate NCCN Content and explore chemotherapy regimens based on specific patient characteristics and quickly view up-to-date chemotherapy options, as well as known side effect profiles.

The new iPad tool is an extension of McKesson Specialty Health’s Clear Value Plus, a quality support tool for oncologists that highlights evidence-based treatment options at the point of care. The software brings to life Value Pathways powered by NCCN and NCCN Guidelines within the clinical workflow—offering evidence-based protocols at the point of care with the patient. In addition, Clear Value Plus is compatible with multiple provider systems and provides integrated financial information, real-time reporting and benchmarking to demonstrate the value of delivering evidence-based care.
