Quality Care From Cancer Treatment Centers of America
Cancer Treatment Centers of America recently joined with Allscripts and NantHealth to create eviti, a clinical support solution. The program called Clinical Pathways informs clinicians off treatment processes available. The operating system for the program was built by hundreds of oncologists and contains essential cancer care data. With the Clinical Pathways program featuring the latest data and oncology research, clinicians can eliminate the guesswork for patient treatment.
Not only is the program designed specially for the patient, Clinical Pathways also displays treatment regimens and possible therapies. Oncologists and patients can then create a list of care protocols. Treatments can be custom designed to meet a patients health and disease state. Clinical Pathways shows patients and oncologists the comparison in treatment options including the average cost of delivery. Each treatment option presented by eviti is evidence-based and suggests supportive therapies to increase a patients quality of life throughout cancer treatment. The eviti solution and the Clinical Pathways program began integration in early 2016 and is now available at all five Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
With the first hospital opening in 1988, Cancer Treatment Centers of America combines conventional treatment approaches while offering different therapies to manage side effects. Treatments used include chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and immunotherapy. Specializing in the treatment of cancer, integrative therapies are used to manage side effects such as malnutrition, fatigue, pain and depression.
Located across the United States with five hospitals, Cancer Treatment Centers of America reaches cancer patients in the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean. Cancer Treatment Centers of America earned a Five State quality rating for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. At four of the hospitals, the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers has been awarded. With the accreditation award, 27 standards have been met including research, clinical management and quality improvement.
