CancerNAV is a clinical application used to support patient navigators as they manage the treatment path for their oncology patient population through the health system. CancerNAV was originally developed at the Cleveland Clinic and is proven to increase navigator efficiency and improve patient access and overall quality of care.
About Patient Navigation
The patient navigator is a member of the proven multidisciplinary oncology team. Together, they insure the patient receives the right treatment, in the right place, at the right time. CancerNAV assists by tracking navigator workflow, documenting care coordination and metrics collection. Benchmarking milestones in each patient’s care with streamlined landing pages, alerts and reminders facilitates resolution of barriers to care and adherence to the prescribed treatment plan.
Improved Efficiency and Outcomes
CancerNAV enhances the navigator’s ability to identify, track, manage interventions, and provide follow-up for the oncology patient population, in a seamless and real-time basis. Time to treatment is reduced, which has been demonstrated to reduce patient stress and improve outcomes. Less stressed patients utilize less services, and are more likely to stay with the program, improving the bottom line. With CancerNAV, the navigator can provide these improvements to patient care while handling more patients than before, improving productivity and providing a positive work experience for these important knowledge workers.
