Evergreen announces interactive profiler for cancer patients

Evergreen Healthcare recently announced the Northwest debut of The Cancer Profiler, a free, Web-based interactive tool that helps cancer patients with treatment decisions.
   Now available on the Evergreen Web site, The Cancer Profiler examines the diagnosis, medical history, and personal preferences of the cancer patient, actually treating him or her as a "virtual participant" in major studies published in leading scientific journals, thus maximizing chances for an optimal outcome.
   While developed for Evergreen physicians and their patients, the Cancer Profiler is also available to patients of other Northwest area hospitals and physicians, as well as family members and caregivers. Visit (http://www.evergreenhealthcare.org and click on Cancer Care, Treatment Decision Tools.)
