Posted by SS Admin on April 14, 2017 in Health, Health Care |
It was recently announced that Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), along with Allscripts and NantHealth, has launched what is called the Clinical Pathways program. This platform will integrate NantHealth’s clinical support solution, called eviti, along with the Sunrise electronic health record program of Allscripts. The goal is to improve the cancer treatment process and improve the efficiency of the doctor’s clinical workflow. The Clinical Pathways program was developed by Cancer Treatment Centers of America along with hundreds of oncologists across the United States inputting their cancer care data.
According to the article, “Cancer Treatment Centers of America® Partners with Allscripts and NantHealth to Launch Clinical Pathways, a Comprehensive and Custom Oncology Treatment Platform,” CTCA’s Chief Medical Officer of the Southeastern Regional Medical Center is George Daneker, Jr., MD. He said that Clinical Pathways will show all applicable treatment options for each cancer patient. This will help to eliminate guesswork and provide better outcomes for patients.
CTCA is based in Boca Raton, Florida. It is made up of five hospitals around the country that treat adult cancer patients. The hospitals that comprise Treatment of Cancer are in Chicago, Philidelphia, Atlanta, Tulsa, and Phoenix. The clinical approach the company uses is based on genomic testing, surgery, immunotherapy, radiation, and chemotherapy in order to help patients beat this deadly disease. Both before, during, and after treatment, CTCA helps patients manage the side effects of both the cancer they have and the treatments that are designed to irradicate it.
It was in 1988 that Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded by Richard J. Stephenson. Richard mother had died of cancer and he wasn’t satisfied with the treatment options that were available at that time. The first hospital that was part of CTCA was the Midwestern Regional Medical Center and the other four hospitals were added between 2005 and 2012. CTCA also has a presence in other parts of the world including Mexico, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East.
