Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is teaming up with NantHealth and Allscripts in forming a technical solution. This includes enabling NantHealth enviti decision support and Allscripts electronic health record (EHR) access in workflows. These integrations assist with the Clinical Pathways program and the cancer treatment process across the country with oncologists.
CTCA Southeastern Regional Medical Center Chief Medical Officer said this helps to eliminate any guesswork in their Clinical Pathways program. He said they created an ecosystem of treatment options customized for patients to choose that are safe and well-organized.
This partnership allows Cancer Treatment Centers of America have customized treatment regimens for patients with their disease progression and health. One step computer entry and treatment regimens recommended with eviti mapped with EHR to CTCA as an integrated way to approach care. This also allows access to guidelines kept up-to-date of response rates, drug reactions, and toxicity. The other thing partnering is the integrated solution that with eviti Allscripts Sunrise EHR for Clinical Pathways doctors can retrieve information from an “unbiased” Evidence-Based Medical Library. This is a library with over 2,700 evidence-based treatment regimens for all cancers, modalities, and subtypes compiled from peer-reviewed literature.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988 and focuses on tailoring personalized cancer treatments for the patient’s needs. This includes genomic testing and scientific advances to give individuals as many treatment options as possible. Their approach is that no two patients are alike and therefore treatment should be based on what fits the individual patient.
The treatment at CTCA has five hospitals in the U.S. in major metropolitan areas of Atlanta, Philadelphia, Chicago, Phoenix, and Tulsa. They use the latest technology to not only treat the type of cancer an individual has, but also the side effects of the disease and treatment like fatigue, nausea, and pain.
