Cancer Treatment Centres of America, also referred to as CTCA, consists of five hospitals that tend to patients that are ailing from cancer in America. CTCA has its head office in the city of Boca Raton in Palm Beach County, Florida. The national -for-profit organization was founded in 1988 by Richard J. Stephenson after his dissatisfaction with cancer treatment options for his ailing cancer mother.
CTCA is inventing a custom technical solution which shall provide Eviti an access to Allscripts’ Sunrise Electronic Health, EHR, workflow records. Eviti is NantHealth’s clinical support option. CTCA is carrying out this project in conjunction with Allscripts and NantHealth to fruition. This Clinical Pathways project shall be used to aid the process of treating cancer without interfering with the workflow of the physician through fluid integration. NantOS, the clinical operating system of the direct interface, was created with the assistance of numerous oncology specialists and has a large collection of data for the evolving cancer care.
George Daneke Jr., the Chief Medical Officer of CTCA, states that Clinical Pathways was created to rid probably guessing by physicians that are not up to date with oncology nor new research data. He also adds that they have made a broad range of treatment options for their patients to select from. Clinical Pathways merges the latest cancer research, therapies, and treatments inside Allscripts Sunrise EHR, which in turn helps the physician to provide appropriate care to the patient.
The platform provides options such as custom treatment regimens, treatment cost comparisons, average treatment cost, clinical history data, computerized entry, real-time function, and much more to ensure the patient gets the appropriate care they deserve. The project idea came about at the beginning of 2016 in a bid to help the providers as well as patients to benefit from the project’s efficiency. All three of these companies are top-flight players in their focus areas. That is why this is seen as such a powerful alliance which has raised hopes and expectations of better cancer care.
