The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a widespread network of hospitals located across the contiguous United States, in: Atlanta, Georgia; Chicago, Illinois; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Phoenix, Arizona; and Tulsa, Oklahoma. The organization was initialized in 1988 by Richard J Stephenson, inspired by his mother’s battle with cancer. Mr. Stephenson quickly realized following his beloved parent’s death that the network didn’t have sufficient treatments for mitigating, treating, and hopefully curing cancer.
Hospitals belonging to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, usually shortened to Cancer Treatment Centers of America, are all accredited by relevant medical bodies. They all serve under Full Standards Compliance, have been acknowledged in various media sources for high levels of satisfaction, and the important accreditation on behalf of the NAPBC (National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers).
Earlier this calendar year, in late February, 2017, Cancer Treatment Centers of America joined forces with NantHealth and Allscripts to form Clinical Pathways. NantHealth’s eviti decision-making platform helps physicians make informed decisions about diagnosis and treatment, rather than leaving oncologists to play guessing games about the many types of cancer in existence. However, the program lacked proper clinical workflow access. The electronic health record, or EHR, Allscripts Sunrise has been used for several years, although doctors had trouble utilizing it for diagnosing conditions.
Clinical Pathways joined together eviti and Sunrise to help doctors treat patients in less time, and with more accuracy than ever before. Clinical Pathways has effectively eradicated situations in which two or more patients with nearly identical ailments received radically different treatments, with the now-comprehensive interface relying on its bipartisan Evidence-Based Medical Library. This database provides oncologists with more than 2,700 lines of treatment, one or more for every type of cancer recognized today. These treatments are considered more appropriate than previous remedies, as the 2,700-plus treatments came in part from oncologists’ published literature, associations of oncologists, and is maintained by top-notch oncologists to ensure around-the-clock effectiveness.
