Cancer Treatment Center of America launches new treatment workflow

Clinical Pathways is a clinical workflow in collaboration with NantHealth and Allscripts. Drawing on the most recent research, it helps eliminate guesswork by providing comprehensive treatment options, customized to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) standards. Clinical Pathways is easy to use for both doctors and their patients and can even expedite insurance approval by providing clinical data.

By integrating with Allscripts Sunrise EHR, Clinical Pathways provides access to an unbiased Evidence-Based Medical Library. The library is kept up to date by oncology experts and includes outcomes, costs, toxicities and supporting literature. After choosing a regimen, providers can order directly through Allscripts. This is all to make finding and choosing treatments easier.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988 to provide care centered on patients. CTCA provides comprehensive treatment for their patients and the ability to receive their care in one place. With the focus only on cancer, CTCA is better able to provide expertise in the constantly changing world of medicine. CTCA offers options to their patients, not a one-size fits all approach.

With five hospitals across the United States (Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tulsa), CTCA seeks to provide treatment to as many as they can. All of them staff not only oncologists but also all the support personnel a patient may need. Each patient has their own team of experts to tailor treatment to them. After all, the focus is on the patient, and not only treatment of their cancer, but also the management of the side effects.
