They have a vast network of experts providing services to cancer patients in the United States, while at the same time maintaining their presence in the Caribbean, Latin America, and the Middle East.
As stated in this article, their cutting-edge technologies and advanced treatments that help in delivering personalized care to patients visiting Cancer Treatment Centers of America have allowed them to cater for a large number of cancer patients. They use an integrative treatment approach involving different methods such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiation, and surgery in the treatment of cancer. Additionally, their integrative therapies have helped them to combat side effects of treatment such as nausea, pain, anxiety, malnutrition, and fatigue, among others.
Clinical Pathways Launch
CTCA collaborated with NantHealth and Allscripts in February 2017 in the launch of Clinical Pathways to help the easy identification of the evidence-based treatment regimens by the oncologists. The platform seeks to implement a custom technical solution that allows the NantHealth’s eviti platform to access Allscripts electronic health record containing clinical workflows. The integration aims at providing better cancer treatment by providing excellent transparency during therapy and care delivery leading to reduced variability in care. This has allowed the oncologists to compare treatment regiments and their results leading to improved quality and efficiency in the care provided by CTCA.
