"CCE's proprietary Evidence-based Treatment Protocols represent a significant advantage for community oncology practices around the country as they assimilate a vast amount of information into a usable clinical outcome tool. By integrating the protocols into the member oncology practices, physicians will be able to demonstrate to consumers the value of practicing evidence-based medicine across the entire continuum of care in oncology," stated Dr. Schnell. "The sheer breadth of these protocols is testament to the diligence of our 11 national physician User Groups and the cohesiveness of the network. With the release of our 62nd protocol, our broad network of community oncologists utilizes empirical, evidence-based and referenced protocols in treating our patients. This assures that we remain focused on value based medicine while using the most current evidence to treat our patients," added Arthur "Chip" Staddon, MD, Pennsylvania Oncology, Philadelphia, PA, Chairman of CCE.
