Clinical Care Options' (CCO) Innovative Technology Will Quickly Help Healthcare Providers Assess and Address Clinical Practice Challenges

RESTON, Va., Jan. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Clinical Care Options (CCO) announces the launch of an Interactive Decision Support Tool (IDST) mobile application (app) across medical specialties. IDSTs, in conjunction with traditional educational formats, offer a means to narrow the gap between clinical practice/guideline recommendations and individualized treatment decision-making.

IDSTs are authored by a panel of topic experts or based on consensus guidelines to address changing treatment paradigms and gaps in guideline specificity across a range of medical specialties. CCO's IDSTs are developed to include hundreds to thousands of unique case variations based on factors considered important for treatment selection. To use the IDST, healthcare providers are prompted to enter patient-specific and disease-specific information from pull-down menus and then indicate their planned clinical approach for the patient case entered into the tool. After this information is entered, a single treatment recommendation is provided from each of the 5 experts and displayed for the specific case.

"Outcomes results prove that using CCO decision support tools changes the intended treatment plan for many healthcare providers, suggesting the tools' use can help optimize care of patients," said Dan Cox, CEO, CEA Holdings. "This IDST app is the logical next step to provide an accessible, readily usable format of these critical tools to healthcare providers worldwide."

CCO's IDST app is available for free on iOS and Android platforms:

  • Apple: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/cco-decision-support/id1489371421
  • Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.clinicaloptions.cco.decisionsupport
