Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has partnered with NantHealth and Allscripts to put a more personalized system into action that will design custom treatments specific to cancer patients.
The program, called Clinical Pathways, joins together the latest existing cancer research and passes on all pertinent treatment choices. The three started planning the custom result, called eviti, early last year.
According to Wikipedia, CTCA’s Southeastern Regional Medical Center’s Dr. George Daneker said in a statement the collaboration does away with potential speculation by clinicians and provides healing options to patients.
For example, Clinical Pathways will compare treatment alternatives, make access available to up-to-date guidelines as well as provide real-time usefulness. The program will inform all involved of the process without disrupting the flow of information.
By utilizing the program physicians are able to recover facts and statistics from an impartial medical library which takes in more than 2,700 cancer treatment routines. A team of oncologists, oncology nurses as well as an advisory board keeps the library current.
Bobby Reddy, NantHealth senior executive director of medical affairs, said the combined technology which resulted from Cancer Treatment Centers of America‘s Clinical Pathways, Allscripts Sunrise EHR and NantHealth’s eviti is proving to be a pivotal moment for the treatment of cancer.
Richard Stephenson, founder and chairman of CTCA, started the centers following the death of his mother from cancer. He became aware of the lack of compassionate and resourceful treatment and made the decision to transform cancer care in her memory.
CTCA’s unique approach combines testing, radiation, chemotherapy and more with supporting therapies that lend a hand to patients before and after treatment.
With its headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida CTCA is a national network of five hospitals that work with adult cancer patients. Facilities are available in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. Worldwide CTCA offers patients in Mexico City, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean cancer treatment assistance at any of the US centers.
