Cancer Treatment Centers of America Implements Avant-garde Program
In a recent collaboration between Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Allscripts, and NantHealth, a technical solution has been implemented that will allow for eviti, a program utilized by NantHealth, to work in conjunction with Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record. This new collaboration will allow the NantHealth clinical support solution to access workflows utilized by Allscripts, without interrupting the workflow of the physician utilizing it. Guesswork is essentially eliminated from the clinician’s process, due to the fact that all appropriate treatment options will be presented by Clinical Pathways. With Clinical Pathways, oncologists are essentially able to create a curated list of the appropriate protocols by integrating the latest cancer research into the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record. A few of the benefits of utilizing this program include custom regimens for the patient, access to the latest guidelines and adverse drug reactions, as well as comparisons between treatment options and real-time functionality.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global, Inc, is a non-profit group of hospitals that is headquartered in Boca Raton, FL, but was originally located in Schaumburg, IL until its relocation in 2015. It was founded by Richard J. Stephenson in 1988 after experiencing dissatisfaction with his mother’s cancer treatment before she later died of the disease. The national network consists of five hospitals that work to treat cancer in adult patients by utilizing genomic testing, surgery, radiation, immunotherapy, as well as chemotherapy. The hospitals under the Cancer Center Treatment of America umbrella are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tulsa and service adult patients from all parts of the world.
