The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is partnering with Allscripts and NantHealth to create a one-of-a-kind solution using custom technology. Allscripts Sunrise will offer electronic health records to provide staff access to clinical workflows. NantHealth brings to the table a clinical decision support solution. Integrating these new support systems will create Clinical Pathways, a program that tracks the cancer treatment process, while not disturbing the doctor’s practice and patient care process.
This clinical operating system was put together by the hands of many oncologists working across the Americas. The amount of data that the system will collect should be very comprehensive and ever evolving in the treatment and care of cancer.
The Clinical Pathways system will help physicians by providing treatment options and complementary therapies, thereby eliminating some potential guesswork. Doctors are regularly feed massive information on new data and cancer research and the Clinical Pathways will help sort this information out quicker.
Working with this integrated platform will merge physicians, staff and patients to allow for better conversations about options, diagnosis and insurance billing. Billing can be a faster process because the providers will be able to quickly provide the supporting data often requested by the insurance companies.
The Clinical Pathways system is available for use with every patient at all five Cancer Treatment Centers of America hospitals, which are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tulsa.
For over 30 years the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has been healing cancer patients with the help of technology and true hands on teams that not only tackle the treatments but also the many side effects, such as nausea, pain, and fatigue. Cancer Treatment Centers of America treats eleven forms of cancer, for now.
The advancement in technological platforms and continued high level of commitment from all involved will provide patients, physician, insurance companies, and all support staff even further success in the treatment of cancer.
