Pioneering the latest in evidence-based care
Physicians in The US Oncology Network are recognized leaders in their fields, known for their innovation and commitment to delivering the highest quality, evidence-based care. Level I Pathways, created by physicians in The US Oncology Network, were selected by the National Comprehensive Cancer Network to be integrated with NCCN guidelines, forming Value Pathways powered by NCCN.
Value Pathways Powered by NCCN combine NCCN Guidelines - the most comprehensive and frequently updated clinical practice guidelines available in any area of medicine - with the pathways development process pioneered by The US Oncology Network's Level I Pathways Task Force, resulting in enhanced oncology pathways designed to strengthen standards in evidence-based, high-quality cancer care.
The History of Level I Pathways
- Shorter duration therapy
- Lower frequency of chemotherapy related hospital admissions
