Cancer Treatment Centers of America Starts a New Cancer Care Program

At the beginning of the year, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) partnered with NantHealth and Allscripts to establish Clinical Pathways program, a custom and comprehensive oncology treatment platform. The Clinical Pathway will assist oncologists to identify the evidence-based treatment regimen through the integration of Allscripts Sunrise electronic health records and eviti platform, NantHealth’s clinical decision support.

With the integration of eviti, the program will be able to inform oncologists the cancer treatment process without interrupting their clinical workflow. The integration will also allow medical practitioners to retrieve data from the unbiased, evidence-based medical library which contains more than 2,700 most appropriate treatment regimens for all cancers, cancer subtypes, as well as all modalities.

The program’s direct interface, NantOS, holds a comprehensive compilation of evolving cancer care data as it was built with the data input sourced from hundreds of oncologists in the country. The Clinical Pathway Program avails all the appropriate treatment options. The program is useful as it helps eliminate possible guesswork by medical practitioners usually inundated with new oncology research. The three institutions formed an ecosystem of standard treatment options for patients to analyse and choose the option that is safe and efficient.

The clinical pathway program avails the latest treatment regimens, complementary therapies, and latest oncology research into the Allscripts Sunrise Electronic Health Records, thus enabling the oncologist to create a curated list of care procedures at the point of care. The three institutions started planning the project since 2016. This program is a game changer for cancer treatment and care. It is available in all the CTCA.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a profit based national network of five hospitals that offers cancer treatment in the United States. The headquarters are situated in Boca Raton, Florida. Richard J. Stephenson founded CTCA after his mother succumbed to cancer. The organization provides an integrative approach to cancer care, which combines advancements in genomic testing followed by precise cancer treatment, radiation, surgery, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.

The five hospitals are based in Chicago, Tulsa, Atlanta, Phoenix, and Philadelphia. CTCA is continuously rated among the United States Hospitals that offer quality patients care and experience.
