New Technology Creates A More Informed Patient
Recently, Cancer Treatment Centers Of America (CTCA) announced a partnership with Allscripts and NantHealth to better their patients lives and offer more clear-cut treatment choices when faced with a cancer diagnosis. Both companies did contribute programs that were merged into one seamless operating system. Clinical Pathways is comprised of Allscripts “Sunrise“, an electronic health record system and NantHealth’s “Eviti“, a program that helps organize and assign clinical pathways. Together these programs are able to help clinicians and patients choose the best treatment option according to the type and stage of cancer the patient presents with.
Clinical Pathways is always up to date on the latest treatments, research, and medications for all types of cancer. The system was built with a library of government research, peer reviewed literature, and oncology studies that is maintained by a team of oncologists, oncology nurses, and and advisory board of clinical professionals and experts. This system works with the physicians paperwork and cuts down on any guesswork on the physician’s part when treating the patient’s cancer.
This system is just another way that CTCA is working to better the lives of their patients. Rated in the top tier hospitals for patient service and quality, Cancer Treatment Centers of America are headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida with five other hospitals in Atlanta, Phoenix, Chicago, Tulsa, and Philadelphia. CTCA believes that in order to treat the condition, the person needs treatment as a whole person.
CTCA treats the body, mind, and soul with many different therapies from traditional medicine to holistic approaches. Even when cancer treatments have been done CTCA will provide after care programs to the patient. CTCA specializes in: chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, genomic testing, surgery, and precision cancer testing. To learn more about CTCA and their new patient system, please click here.
