On the May 6, 2013, official pilot launch date, Blue Cross will deploy Web-based tools from a third party vendor named eviti® through a relationship with Prime. Participation in the pilot allows medical oncology providers access to eviti I Advisor, a decision support resource that empowers oncologists with a comprehensive, unbiased oncology treatment guidelines library for use at the point of treatment and prescription. Pilot participation also allows access to a companion tool called eviti I Connect. This tool allows oncologists to enter patient-specific drug treatment regimens and clinical trial participation information and engage in a voluntary review to assess their proposed treatments for compliance with evidence-based standards. Physicians in the pilot will receive an incentive for their efforts at the conclusion of the pilot.
Medical oncologists interested in pilot participation may receive more information by contacting their Provider Network Services Representative at 1-866-904-4130.
