RESTON, Va., Oct. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Healthcare providers show marked differences in regimen choice compared
In nearly two thirds of the 1098 cases entered into the online tool, healthcare providers were planning to switch to regimens that differed from those selected by experts based on cardiovascular disease, the presence of mutations associated with HIV drug resistance, or the patient's HLA-B*5701 status.
"Our data show not only that there is a major discrepancy between switch decisions taken by community clinicians compared with experts, but also that an online decision support tool can help guide clinicians to better choices. In many cases where clinicians initially selected an option that differed from the experts, they indicated that they would change their treatment plan after using the tool," said Edward King, MA, Executive Vice President of CCO.
The results were presented October 5 at IDWeek 2019 in Washington, DC, and can be reviewed at https://www.clinicaloptions.com/publications/2019/10_2019_hivswitch.
