Clinical Pathways, a comprehensive and custom oncology treatment platform was launched by Cancer Treatment Centers of America in collaboration with Allscripts and NantHealth. This enables electronic medical records to be integrated a with clinical decision support program, which harnesses the power of this program with the current information of the electronic medical records.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is a national, for-profit network of five hospitals that serves cancer patients throughout the United States. CTCA’s approach to cancer care is to be a one-stop shop, where they provide personalized care to develop customized approaches to treat patients (ex – surgery, chemotherapy, radiation), while offering therapies to help manage the side effects of the treatments.
CTCA, which is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, is known for their personalized approach to treatment by providing patients and their families with comprehensive and up to date information about options for treatment, and stress that participation from the patient and their family is essential in deriving final treatment decisions.
CTCA can now use Clinical Pathways to give their physicians access to real-time information to better formulate treatment regimens for all types of cancer. This integration allows the physician to access an Evidence-Based Medical Library, which encompasses over 2,700 treatment regimes covering all cancers and subtypes. Per Bobby Reddy, Senior Executive Director of Medical Affairs of NantHealth, “The collective technology is proving to be a game changer for cancer care – allowing communication with all key stakeholders to occur more efficiently from prognosis to diagnosis to treatment.”
