Cancer Treatment Centers of America earlier this year announced the launch of Clinical Platforms, a new digital analysis platform designed to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cancer by eliminating all elements of guesswork from the process. The new platform is a collaborative effort between the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Allscripts and NantHealth. The idea behind it is to combine the clinical workflows in the electronic health record from Allscripts Sunrise with a clinical decision support solution – eviti- from NantHealth. By seamlessly integrating the two systems, Clinical Platforms will be able to inform the decisions made during treatment of cancer without interfering with the clinical workflows of the physician. The whole new system runs on the NantOS operating system which was created by NantHealth with input from thousands of oncologists drawn from all corners of the country.
Speaking during the announcement at the company’s head office, Cancer Treatment Centers of America CEO George Daneker described the new Clinical Pathways program as an ecosystem made up of treatment options that meet the program’s standards of care and which patients can read, compare and decide which treatment options to explore. Another advantage of the program is that it is regularly updated with the latest information gained from cancer treatment research making patients aware of every new treatment or procedure immediately it is approved.
Based in Boca Raton, Florida, Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a network made up of 5 hospitals spread throughout the nation all of which are committed to treating adult cancer patients. The five hospitals in the system are located in Tulsa, Chicago, Atlanta, Phoenix, and Philadelphia. However, the treatment centers also attend to cancer patients from other parts of the world as well. Since its inception, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has consistently been ranked among the best-equipped hospitals in the entire country.
