Cancer Treatment Centers of America formed a partnership with NantHealth and Allscripts. From this partnership, a new program called Clinical Pathways was formed. Clinical Pathways is a computer program that is integrated with electronic health records (EHR). The program will combine the most up to date research, treatment, and additional therapies or treatment with the current EHR. This will allow the doctors convenient and immediate access to the information. This will allow the doctor to easily see and compare the treatment options. It will also allow them to look at the costs of the treatments and the supportive therapies or treatments. The program can also help to streamline the insurance approval process.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is headquartered in Florida. However, they form a network of 5 different hospitals which are located in Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tulsa. They have been rated among the top hospitals for patient care. The main focus is to treat adults who are fighting cancer. They use the most up to date and advanced technology in testing and treatment. CTCA also involves the patient and their family in the treatment process and treatment decisions.
CTCA aims to treat the person as a whole, and not just the cancer. The goal is to help the patients from an emotional and a physical standpoint. There are many side effects that come with cancer and the cancer treatment. When looking at the side effects, the goal of CTCA is to use supportive treatment and therapies to reduce or eliminates these side effects. It is about trying to maintain the best quality of life while helping the patient fight their cancer.
