Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988. This company became started on finding a personalized and patient-centered approach to the treatment and care of cancer patients. Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is fully dedicated to providing a combination of different treatments that is specifically tailored to the different needs of each patient individually.
American cancer treatment centers as well as a couple of other companies, NantHealth and Allscripts, are working together to find a custom solution that will enable eviti to have access to all of the clinical workflows of Allscripts electronic health record. Eviti is a part of NantHealth and it is a support solution for clinical decisions. With the integration of this, Clinical Pathways Program will be able to help inform the process of cancer treatment without interrupting the workflow of the physicians.
As stated on Wikipedia, Clinical Pathways is able to present physicians and patients with treatment options that are appropriate for them specifically. It also keeps up with the new data and all of the new oncology research, which will in turn eliminate the clinicians guesswork. It provides many different treatment options that are all customized to the standard of care by the CTCA and it gives the patients the ability to review these options and choose which they prefer.
Clinical Pathways was designed with the patients specifically in mind. Once the treatment platform becomes engaged it provides numerous things. It will provide treatment regimens that are customized and specific for each individual patient. It will compare each treatment option and include the costs. It offers patients with access to guidelines that are up-to-date as well as the rate of response, the adverse side effects and even the amount of toxicity. This pathway creates a greater amount of transparency around the selection as well as the care delivery of the cancer therapies.
