Cancer Treatment Centers of America has announced a collaboration with NantHealth and Allscripts to integrate with an electronic health workflow system called Clinical Pathways. The system integration will allow physicians to quickly and accurately access a patient’s treatment options and eliminate guesswork by suggesting the latest medical advances through data compiled with oncology research centers nationwide.
Clinical Pathways can customize a treatment plan for each patient’s needs and easily show how distinct options compare to one another. Once a treatment plan is decided upon it is easily entered into the computer system, generating a workflow that is sent to all involved parties. This ease of communication will work to eliminate inefficiencies in care that can cause a delay in treatment. By sending treatment plans to insurance providers, approval can be received more quickly, allowing doctors to get to work faster.
Treatment plans are devised based on an evidence-based medical library free of outside influence as well as up to the moment statistics on how other individuals have responded to similar treatment. Armed with all the relevant information, a patient can look at the options and costs and decide what is best for them.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is headquartered in Boca Raton, FL and has a network of five hospitals in the United States dedicated to serving adult patients fighting cancer. Their hospitals have been the pioneer in cancer treatment through offering genomic testing, precision treatments, surgery, radiation, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy.
Quality of life as well as managing side effects from treatment are at the top of the list of priorities for any patient receiving care. Cancer Treatment Centers of America is consistently rated an industry leading provider in the field of oncology and works diligently to keep all patients informed throughout all stages of their recovery.
