Cancer Treatment Centers of America Are Looking into High Tech Solutions

Most people are quite aware of how important technology is to modern medical care. But many people don’t know how important the concept of convergence is. Convergence is what happens when multiple technologies come together to create something even more powerful than the sum of their parts. It’s also what makes recent news from Cancer Treatment Centers of America so exciting. They’ve finished full integration of multiple medical systems into a singular clinical decision support solution. The result, NantOS, will help offer an unprecedented level of help to all levels of caregiver within the Cancer Treatment Centers of America.

Anyone familiar with Cancer Treatment Centers of America will understand why they’re on the cutting edge of modern medical technology. The organization is founded on the principle that proper cancer treatment needs to treat every patient as an individual. There’s no one single method of treating a patient. Everyone comes in with a unique background and unique circumstances. As such, they require a unique treatment that’s tailored to their individual needs. Of course doing so isn’t an easy matter. Using the latest technology is a way of helping to isolate individual differences and properly manage treatment as a result. NantOS is an important piece of this puzzle.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America can use NantOS to see trends and patterns which no other organization would be able to notice. It’s essentially like having a full medical team constantly pouring over a patient’s medical records to see if there’s ever been a report of particular items helping or hindering treatment. It’s also why they use a multidisciplinary team to treat individual patients. A person is far more than a single diagnosis. A person’s health involves complex layers of interactions that take place in every system of their body. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America have always recognized that fact and relied on treatment teams which can help every single part of a person’s health thrive.

They’re also working to discover how individual differences in cancers can be matched with current medicines to create optimal treatment plans. This TAPUR study is part of an overall pattern of groundbreaking research within the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. All this and more shows exactly what makes them the best option for cancer treatment.

According to a report by the company, Zama-1 holds between one hundred and five hundred million barrels of crude. The project will take three months to be completed, and so far it shows a high geological chance of succeeding. The well, being the first to be drilled by another company is expected to be watched closely by the industry, according to an analyst at Edison Investment Research Ltd, Elaine Reynolds.

How Cassio Audi’s Musical Life Shaped Rock Music in Brazil

Even as most people only know and recognize Cassio’s long streak in the field of financial management, little is talked about concerning his early career in music. In fact, most people lacked a story or two about his brilliant musical career that was cut short due to the desire to pursue a more corporate career.
How it All Started
Cassio’s solo musical career never became so significant after which he was invited over by friend Andres who had the wind about a group that wanted to start a rock band. Andres had for long recognized the incredible drumming skills that Cassio possessed, and it is through this urge that he encouraged him to join a group of three other friends. Together, they formed a band which they called Viper; all this happened in 1985. Immediately after its formation, Cassio assumed the drumming role at the band which he jumped into with a lot of zeal and passion.
Major Achievements
Together, they practiced, performed and composed various songs such as the Killeria and Princess from Hell which got favorable airplay from the media stations back then. Cassio began an active role in writing songs for the band as his friend Andres remained the main vocalist of the band. Their consistent efforts finally bore fruit as they released their first album which they named Soldiers from Sunrise in 1987. The album did very well, and in fact, they managed to secure more stage performances immediately after this breakthrough. Having won a lot of fans for his skillful drumming abilities, Cassio got more motivated, and after two years, they released another album entitled the Theatre of Fate which also happened to have marked an end to Cassio Audi’s short musical career in 1989. Even as he went to pursue further studies, the group remained active and still went ahead to release more tracks.
