ChemoOrders.com – a free web site created by Georgia Cancer Specialists (GCS) designed to create patient-specific chemotherapy orders–continues to show extensive growth since its launch in May 2007.
In the second quarter of 2007, ChemoOrders.com received 7,187 visits, and had 567 protocols ordered. In the second quarter of 2008, it received 26,061 visits – a 238 percent increase – and had 3,991 protocols ordered – a 131 percent increase. The three most commonly ordered protocols fall under breast cancer (Her2 Neg), colon cancer, and small cell lung cancer.
ChemoOrders.com success lies in its trademark: “Fast. Free. Reliable.”
“It’s gratifying to see an idea formulate into a product, and then watch that expand and grow,” said Dr. Bruce Feinberg, CEO and President of GCS. “More people are hearing about ChemoOrders.com, and the fact that it’s easily navigable, and free, seems to be a winning combination.”

ChemoOrders.com uses established peer-reviewed clinical guidelines to ensure that the most current disease protocols are outlined.
