The Cancer Treatment Centers of America are a collection of five hospitals across the nation who all have a common goal: healing and helping those with cancer. Striving to provide the best treatment options to it’s patients, the CTCA combines top-of-the-line care including genomic testing, precision treatment, surgery, radiation and chemo with supportive therapies aimed at helping patients live comfortable lives.
As stated in the article, “Cancer Treatment Centers of America® Partners with Allscripts and NantHealth to Launch Clinical Pathways, a Comprehensive and Custom Oncology Treatment Platform,” though centered in Boca Raton, Florida, the CTCA spans the entire nation from Pennsylvania to Arizona, and includes five hospitals, all with the same goal: fighting cancer and helping patients get better. Each different hospital included in the CTCA network is staffed by experts who aim to provide patients with personalized care meant to fit their needs.
This passion for helping each individual patient with personalized care has brought about some changes for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, who, through their partnership with AllScripts and NantHealth, have launched a program called Clinical Pathways, a comprehensive oncology platform that provides cancer patients with personalized care. This new platform helps the treatment process by informing doctors without interrupting the workflow of the physician, allowing them to treat patients quickly and efficiently, while still remaining on a personal, case-by-case level. This system was designed with oncologists nationwide participating in it’s creation, and aims to offer the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on the disease.
According to Wikipedia, Clinical Pathways aims to present all options that fit the patients needs, as well as helping to prevent guesswork from doctors who are barraged with new treatments, research and data. With this system, it’s easy to see that the CTCA had patients in mind with the creation of this platform, allowing them to choose their own treatment and therapy options from a list deemed safe and helpful to them, ushering in a new dawn of cancer treatment.
