Cancer Treatment Centers of America Partners Up for Technology

The for-profit group known as the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has recently partnered up with NantHealth and Allscripts to help with a solution in the workplace of healthcare.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America, or CTCA, has been collaborating with both groups because they have come up with a technical solution for the clinical systems. The solution can enable a program called “eviti,” which is a NantHealth clinical support solution, to have access to clinical workflows that operate with the electronic health records (EHR) provided by Allscripts.

The Clinical Pathways Program, as it is called, allows for patients to be fully informed about the cancer treatment process while the physician can focus on their work at the same time. The interface of the operating system itself was put together with the help and expert opinions of oncologists all over the states and also acts an archive for data regarding the evolution of cancer. The treatment platform program provides useful aides such as a comparison for all treatment options, including the costs, treatment programs specific to the patient and their health and even real time functionality.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a national group that is for-profit that was founded in 1988 and serves as a network for five specific hospitals that serve cancer patients all over the United States. The CTCA is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida and is a private health system.

The CTCA takes part in different approaches when it comes to treating a patient’s cancer, ranging from surgery to different radiation treatments to immunotherapy to chemotherapy. The group is constantly rated as one of the top hospitals in the country when it comes to quality and care of patients during treatment. CTCA provides thorough explanations regarding the treatment options and encourages participation in family decisions.
