New & Innovative
WiserCare's patent-pending decision support solution has been designed by physicians and health services experts to help newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients and their physicians make smarter, faster and more effective medical decisions.
Based on many research studies that have shown that involving patients in the decision making process actually leads to making better decisions for prostate cancer treatment, WiserCare enhances the choices patients make with their doctors at the point of care, improving healthcare quality and patient satisfaction.
The WiserCare online education and decision-making tool can be accessed on your home computer or in your urologist's office. For more information about WiserCare, please contact Nurse Navigator, Martha McCurdy, at 847.503.3000.
