"This program has been an integral part of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan's Value Partnerships lineup since 2010. The Pathways Program has an active Steering Committee consisting of Michigan-based oncologists who are committed to the delivery of high quality, efficient, evidence-based care. The program dynamically responds to new data regarding effective therapies and ways in which to optimize care. We look forward to the integration of the CARET application into practice workflows, and we are confident that practices will greatly benefit from this web-based, decision support tool."
