The fight against cancer is not in any way easy. The lack of high quality and timely treatment is one of the biggest challenges facing many cancer patients, leaving devastating effects on them. Luckily the entrance of Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) changed everything in the way patients receive treatment and care.
In the Hands of Only the Best
There are five hospitals operating under CTCA, whose headquarters are located in Boca Raton, Florida. They are based in Phoenix, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Tulsa and Chicago and serve not only the area residents but also patients from all over the world. All the CTCA hospitals are staffed by some of the most experienced cancer treatment experts who have at their disposal the most advanced technologies.
Every hospital takes a conventional approach for treatment of cancer including chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and surgery. However, the experts go a step further to deliver supportive therapies in a successful effort to help patients deal with the side-effects related to cancer and its treatment. Above all, every treatment is personalized.
In a bid to provide even better treatment and care to its patients, CTCA struck a partnership with Allscripts and NantHealth. Together, the three entities have succeeded in providing more options for treatment as well as greatly improving efficiency and safety. The partnership involves the use of eviti, a clinical decision support solution by NantHealth, and NantHealth’s Clinical Pathways, a program aimed at reduction of variability and enabling better transparency in selection of therapeutic treatment and care for patients by providing evolving data for cancer care. All the way, the CTCA care standards are adhered to.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America hospitals are recognized as some of the top-most performers in the fight against cancer. They have received five-star ratings on quality from the United States’ Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. In addition, many other healthcare organizations have applauded CTCA for its efforts. They include the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NABPC), American College of Radiology, and Association of Community Cancer Centers. The partnership with Allscripts and NantHealth is sure to greatly improve delivery of treatment and care to CTCA patients as well as move the already high ratings higher.
