Why You Need Treatment Scores

When you get sick you need a list of all the possible treatments for your disease. You also need the Treatment Score for each treatment. The Treatment Score represents the "net treatment benefit" for the patient as summarized from the existing medical literature.

Why haven't Treatment Scores been done before?
Because a typical diagnosis has 10,000 variables that must be digested to create a list of Treatment Scores. My physician colleagues and I have spent years creating the mathematics and programming to do Treatment Scores.

Why is something so simple so hard?
When you do your taxes you figure out your gross income, then you figure out your net income.

Net income = gross income - expenses.

When you get sick you need to know the "gross treatment benefit," and then the "net treatment benefit."

Net treatment benefit = gross treatment benefit - side effects.

It all sounds simple, but patients have never had this kind of treatment transparency.

Patients desperately need to know the "net treatment benefit" for patients like them who have been previously treated. Once you know the net treatment benefit, the Treatment Score, as your starting point, shared decision-making and personalized medicine can actually happen.

Treatment Scores solve a lot of problems in healthcare!

The way Treatment Scores work is:
  1. You get a diagnosis
  2. You get a list of treatments with Treatment Scores
  3. When you click on the Treatment Score you can see the underlying statistics in the Treatment Score Calculator™
  4. You and your physician can now do shared decision-making, where input from the patient is used to further refine the Treatment Score to do personalized medicine.
Treatment Scores do the following: 
  1. Save time
  2. Save money
  3. Solve the healthcare illiteracy problem
  4. Solve the treatment transparency problem
  5. Allow for true informed consent
  6. Solve the previously unsolvable quality assurance problem
  7. Enable more people to get more healthcare at lower cost
The following entities need Treatment Scores:
  1. physicians
  2. nurses
  3. patients
  4. medical schools
  5. residency programs
  6. medical journals
  7. health insurance companies
  8. governments around the world
  9. all businesses providing healthcare to employees
