The Cancer Treatment Centers of America in collaboration with NantHealth have developed a clinical decision support solution referred to as the Clinical Pathways. The program assists in informing people about the cancer treatment process, while on the other hand reducing unnecessary interference with the physicians’ workflow. It was built by a cross-section of all the oncologists across the nation, with attention given to the care of patients living with cancer.
The Clinical Pathways have a range of options and helps eliminate the chances of guesswork. It is customized under the CTCA Standard guidelines of care and provides the best format for patients with options that are efficient and effective. The system also integrates the latest research solutions in cancer treatment and other complimentary therapies. The oncologists work on some care protocols. The options include:
Comparing the treatment alternatives and the respective costs
Computer data entry through the simple tapping on the screen
Access to referenced guidelines, procedures, drug prescriptions and much more
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a network of up to five hospitals. The headquarters of all the five hospitals are in Boca Raton. The main bulk of patients served in these hospitals are cancer patients as well as cancer survivors. CTCA offers a broad range of approaches to the care and treatment of cancer patients with genomic testing, radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America did not leave behind the emotional aspects of their patients. The area is specially provided for through supportive therapies designed to emotionally and physically assist the patients to manage their conditions. The program helps in managing the after-effects of treatments and medication of cancer. CTCA took the initiative to provide families with comprehensive and full information which encourages and facilitates the acquisition of the much-needed information by the health providers.
