The Cancer Treatment Centers of America has entered into a partnership with Allscripts and NantHealth to create a program called Clinical Pathways, a uniquely modern oncology treatment plan.
Clinical Pathways gives oncologists the ability to recognize evidence-based treatment plans for its patients through an all-new integration of medical platforms.
This brand-new treatment process utilizes Eviti, a clinical decision support solution, with electronic health records, offering seamless integration between two platforms which collect critical data medical professionals need when treating cancer patients.
Basically, the program works as a clinical operating system, and was designed with input from several hundred oncology specialists from around the U.S. It collects and cross-analyzes sets of comprehensive medical data and provides suggestions through analysis of that data.
Clinical Pathways is designed not only to eliminate human error in missing potential treatment options, it also evolves with medical science and can offer the most modern data and medical studies of which even medical professionals themselves may be unaware.
It gives custom treatment based on each patient’s medical data, compares and contrasts the different treatment options available for a given patient, updates its data set in real-time to reflect the newest and most modern medical options available, keeps track of the newest adverse drug reactions and dosage guidelines for medications, and much more.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America, otherwise known as the CTCA, is located in Boca Raton, Florida. The center is national and operates a for-profit network of five different hospitals to help treat patients located in all areas of the country.
CTCA’s approach to cancer care is an integrative approach, using standard approaches such as surgery, radiation, immunotherapy and chemotherapy to treat the cancer while also using other therapies to minimize side effects such as fatigue, nausea, depression and pain.
