Cancer patients expect their care team to adapt its management over the course of treatment. The team does so by researching up-to-date evidence and dynamically adjusting care plans to match a patient's progress. Above all, the care team must ensure that the expected benefits of treatment are being realized.
Why then should decision support for patients lack this adaptive quality? In reality, it ought to incorporate up-to-date medical evidence and adapt a course of care to match each patient's progress. Decision support should also measure the patient's outcome, quality of life, and cost of care to observe whether it will match the expected prediction.
In other words, at CliniCast, we believe that the decision-support system should have to learn just like the rest of the team.
