Cancer Treatment Centers of America Improves Patient Care With Clinical Pathways Platform

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is constantly working to maintain state-of-the-art technology and treatment options for those suffering with cancer. One of their latest endeavors is a program called Clinical Pathways. Clinical Pathways is designed to streamline the process of treating cancer by partnering with Allscripts and NantHealth to provide a comprehensive custom treatment platform for oncologists.

Clinical Pathways works by utilizing NantHealth’s eviti program, which is a clinical support system, to access electric health records from Allscripts. By doing this, oncologists can access information to provide effective treatment options without slowing their workflow. A patient’s medical history is taken into consideration to inform the selection of vetted treatment plans. Everything from expected outcome to costs of treatment is available, and the process also expedites the insurance approval process. As a result oncologists are able to make educated decisions, and patients receive top care as well as clarity in understanding their options.

The program works in real time, and draws from an Evidence-Based Medical Library with the most up-to-date cancer research available. A full time team manages the library’s information. This team includes oncologists and oncology nurses, along with an advisory board and other medical professionals. The treatment options are evidence based and unbiased, which ensures that patients receive the best possible care without variables and guesswork. All cancers, cancer subtypes and modalities are covered in Clinical Pathways.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is comprised of five hospitals that solely treat cancer. CTCA provides a team of care providers for each patient, delivering high quality care and excellent patient satisfaction. Rather than taking an aloof approach, CTCA oncologists explain things to their patients so that they can be informed and active in the treatment process. Clinical Pathways further equips this philosophy by providing useful real time treatment information. CTCA treats cancer with an integrative approach, ensuring patients physical and emotional well-being, as well as effective treatments of side effects they may be experiencing.
