Cancer Treatment Centers of America Joins Allscripts and NantHealth to Launch Oncological Treatment Platform
PR Newswire recently published an article by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America called, “Cancer Treatment Centers of America Partners with Allscripts and NantHealth to Launch Clinical Pathways, a Comprehensive and Custom Oncological Treatment Platform”. The article discusses a platform that will use an integration of platforms to provide treatment regiments for patients.
Clinical Pathways is a new program that will help improve the entire journey of cancer treatment. The direct interface will allow hundreds of specialists in the nation to add input and data while continuously improving the knowledge of cancer data.
The platform will reveal all of the different treatment options that are relevant for the patient, eliminating guesswork for the oncologists who are constantly inundated with data and research. They wanted to create a system of treatment options that will be customized for the patients, allowing them to choose the safest and most efficient treatment plan.
Clinical Pathways provides a variety of information to improve treatment with the latest research and therapies. This creates a list through the Allscripts Sunrise HER, providing different protocols at the different points of treatment.
Allscripts, NantHealth, and Cancer Treatment Centers of America began working on the project in 2016 to provide a solution for both providers and patients. They were able to find a solution that improves the chemotherapy selection and ordering. By integrating the Evidence Based Medicine Library, which houses more than 2,700 studies of evidence based treatment regimens for the different kinds of cancers, it will provide a regimen for the patients. Each option reveals all the variables such as the expected outcomes, the toxicities, treatment costs, and other information.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a network of hospitals across the U.S. focused on serving patients who are in the battle against cancer. CTCA provides an innovative approach to care that houses the team under one roof. Through treatment with precision medicine and genome testing, they are able to take the fight down to the molecular level.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America also provides chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, immunotherapy and other evidence based therapies to help patients throughout the tumultuous process of cancer treatment.
