Navigating the many different cancer treatment options can be a very difficult process for both patients and their medical providers. This is why the Cancer Centers of America have partnered with Allscripts and NantHealth to create an innovative solution to improve the experience for their patients.
The Cancer Centers of America recently announced the release of Clinical Pathways. Clinical Pathways is a unique treatment platform that is designed to streamline the cancer treatment process for physicians, patients, and insurance carriers. The platform includes all of the most recently approved treatment methods available for each type of cancer. In addition to the methods, it also includes all of the relevant clinical data including the side effects and success rate.
According to Wikipedia, this will allow physicians to quickly and effortlessly present all the viable treatment options to their patients using one resource. They can then begin to work together to choose the best one for their unique situation. Once a treatment plan has been decided on, the information is then made readily available to the patient’s insurance carrier. With the inclusion of relevant clinical details, treatments can be approved much faster resulting in an improved experience for all those involved.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a network of five hospitals that treats adults patients. Their hospitals are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix, and Tulsa. Their main office is headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida. Their network of hospitals is regularly rated among some of the highest in the country.
They offer a broad range of treatment options using state of the art equipment. Some examples of treatments include chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. In addition to the treatments they offer for cancer, they also offer a wide range of counseling and other supportive care that is designed to support the emotional needs of their patients.
