Our services

Dorsata is dedicated to encouraging the development, dissemination and implementation of evidence-based clinical pathways. Dorsata does not offer medical advice. Any Content accessed through Dorstata is for informational purposes only, and is not intended to cover all possible uses, directions, precautions, drug interactions, or adverse effects. Dorsata does not recommend or endorse any third-party service providers, health care providers, specific tests, physicians, products, procedures, opinions, web sites accessed through Dorsata or other information that may be mentioned on the Services or accessed by the Services. Dorsata provides users with access to an interactive pathway creation platform (the “Services”). The specific features of the Services that are available may change from time to time and Dorsata may choose to discontinue some or all of the Services at its Sole discretion. Our role is to dynamically host some of the largest collaboratively-edited treatment pathways in the world. We act only as a hosting service, maintaining the infrastructure and organizational framework that allows our users to build the pathways by contributing and editing Content themselves. Because of our unique role, there are several issues you should keep in mind when considering our relationship to you, the pathways, and the other users.
