March 12, 2010 – Texas Children’s Cancer Center
by Corbin Dodge
Baylor College of Medicine was awarded $953,131 to establish a network of 12 pediatric cancer clinics utilizing the Passport for Care (PFC), an innovative Web-based clinical decision support tool. The Passport for Care, developed by the Texas Children’s Cancer Center and Baylor’s Center for Collaborative and Interactive Technologies, uses the survivor’s history of treatment exposures to produce individualized screening guidelines, risk assessments, and patient information to support clinician-survivor communication and shared decision-making.
The successful implementation of this project will have a dramatic impact nationally by paving the way for subsequent implementation of the Passport for Care throughout all 211 Children’s Oncology Group (COG) institutions.
