CTCA, NantHealth, and Allscripts are Changing the Face of Cancer Treatment

Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), NantHealth, and Allscripts collaborated to develop Clinical Pathways, an oncology treatment platform that aids physicians in diagnosing and treating cancer. Clinical Pathway brought together Allscripts Sunrise™ and eviti®, synchronizing them to work seamlessly. According to Mr. George Daneker, Jr., an MD at CTCA’s Southeastern Regional Medical Center, the platform is aimed at eliminating any element of guesswork by clinicians during any cancer treatment process. He added that through the platform, clinicians would have ample and necessary data assembled from oncological research that is conducted by reputable oncologists. As for the cancer patients, Mr. Daneker was happy to report that they will have a wider variety of effective and safe treatment procedures to choose from.

A Revolutionary Tool

Just like Mr. Daneker explained, Clinical Pathways will change the treatment experience for many. On top of having the oncological research records, the platform also hosts treatment regimens for patients. The regimens have patient specifications, including the treatment history and health state. As such, each patient gets the right treatment for the exact ailment, eliminating the risks of losing lives during the treatment procedure.

During the launch, Allscripts’ CEO, Paul Black, said that Clinical Pathways was an idea that took a whole year to execute. He took pride in having been part of the development that will change the future operations at CTCA. On his part, Senior Executive Director of Medical Affairs of NantHealth Mr. Bobby Reddy termed Clinical Pathways as a game changer.
