Cancer Treatment Centers of America To Launch A Newly Customized Oncology Treatment Platform

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is partnering with Allscripts and NantHealth to introduce a brand new platform, which will ease the burden of oncologists and help patients make better, more informed decisions about their treatment programs. Called Clinical Pathways, the new oncology treatment platform customizes its uses for each user. Cancer Treatment Centers of America will be incorporating Clinical Pathways in an effort to streamline the cancer treatment process for patients without adding to the workload of participating oncologists.
George Daneker, Jr., M.D. is a Chief Medical Officer at Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center. He says Clinical Pathways will improve patient treatment by presenting all viable treatment options, while distinguishing the proven methods from new data and research that may require further study.
“We created an ecosystem of treatment options, customized to the CTCA standard of care, for patients to review and choose from that’s safe and efficient,” says Dr. Daneker.
Clinical Pathways will customize its interface for each patient, determining the best options for that patient’s state of health and the stage of his/her illness. Treatment options, including costs, will then be presented to the patient with an option to buy right on the screen.
Clinical Pathways will also provide patients with all relevant information for each treatment, including guidelines, response rates, drug reactions and side effects, and toxicity.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a for-profit organization that operates through a network of five hospitals in the United States, though they are based out of Boca Raton, Florida. The organization promotes conventional cancer treatments to its patients, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. Additionally, Cancer Treatment Centers of America integrates programs that help patients manage the side effects of cancer treatment. Such programs help alleviate pain, nausea, fatigue, lymphedema, malnutrition, depression, and anxiety in cancer patients.
