Flatiron Health has announced a collaboration with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), bringing its oncology support platform to care clinicians at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, according to a press release.1

Flatiron Assist, Flatiron’s oncology-specific clinical decision support platform, prioritizes evidence-based medicine, site-preferred pathways, and clinical research at the point of care. Through integration with Epic’s electronic health record at MUSC, Flatiron Assist will determine and promote site-preferred pathways and open clinical trials alongside the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines).

“Partnering with the Medical University of South Carolina’s Hollings Cancer Center, a market-leading cancer care provider, is an incredible opportunity to accelerate our shared vision for the delivery of more standardized, efficient, and effective cancer care.” said James Hamrick, MD, vice president of clinical oncology at Flatiron Health in the press release. “Flatiron Assist, tailor made for oncology, offers a clinical decision support platform that places emphasis on the latest evidence based medicine, aiming to reduce care variation while increasing access to clinical trials and novel therapies, ensuring patients at MUSC and beyond receive the highest quality of care.”

“MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is excited to partner with Flatiron Health on the development of cancer clinical pathways,” said Craig Lockhart, MD, MHS, director of the division of hematology and oncology and associate director of clinical science at the MUSC Hollings Cancer Center in the press release. “This project will reduce variability in cancer treatment while increasing the quality of cancer care provided across the state of South Carolina.”
