Getting to Know about Cancer Treatment Centers of America

Allscripts, NantHealth as well as the Cancer Treatment Centers of America have come together to implement a solution that allows the Nantealth clinical decision support solution known as eviti to gain access to the workflow in the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record. The amalgamation is expected to help the clinical pathways program to inform about the cancer treatment process without having to interrupt the physical clinical workflow. The clinical operating system was established with the participation of many oncologists from all over the country. It is composed of a collection of the evolving cancer care data.

The Clinical Pathway is designed with the patients in mind. It has the most recent cancer research, treatment regimens as well as complementary therapies. All this are integrated into the Allscripts Sunrise, therefore, giving the oncologists the ability to come up with a list of care protocols at the point of care. The planning of the project began in the year 2016. It has since had a lot of achievements among them improving the chemotherapy regimen selection and also bettering the quality of care that patients at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) receive.

The head office of CTCA is Boca Raton, Florida. CTCA is composed of five hospitals all of which serve the cancer patients throughout the US. It uses conventional approaches such as chemotherapy, surgery, radiation as well as immunotherapy to treat cancer. CTCA is also committed to offering remedies to the side effects of cancer treatment such as nausea, anxiety, and fatigue among others.

The very first hospital under Cancer Treatment Centers of America was started in the year 1988 by Richard J Stephenson. The inspiration for starting the hospital was drawn from his mother’s death. She died of cancer and Richard did not feel satisfied with the treatment that she received. The hospital was opened in Zion, Illinois. The four other hospitals were opened between the year 2005 and 2012.
