The CTCA or Cancer Treatment Centers of America, NantHealth, and Allscripts have joined together in the implementation of a support solution called eviti. This provides clinical workflow access to the electronic health record of Allscripts Sunrise. The integration is seamless, and provides information regarding the cancer treatment process. The direct interface is called NantOS, required input from hundreds of oncologists, and encompasses a collection of data for cancer care.
The Allscripts Sunrise HER integrates treatment regimens, current cancer research, and complimentary therapies. Once the platform is engaged it provides customized treatment regimens, treatment option comparisons, the average cost of delivery., and order entry. The treatment regimens eviti recommends use an integrative approach regarding the delivery of care. This combines supportive therapies and clinical approaches for the unique needs of each patient.
The transparency is greater through Clinical Pathways regarding therapeutic selection and efficiency and quality are improved. Through the integrated platform the clinical teams can discuss available treatment regimens with their patients, and make comparisons. This improves the appropriateness and confidence of the treatment regarding the patient’s diagnosis. The approval from insurance providers is also expedited.
Richard J. Stephenson is the founder of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America. This occurred after his mother passed away from cancer because he was unhappy with the treatment options available for her. The year was 1988 when the first Cancer Treatment Centers of America hospital opened in Zion, Illinois at the Midwestern Regional Medical Center. Between 2005, and 2012 four additional hospitals were opened.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a for-profit network of five hospitals in the United States. They serve cancer patients with an integrative approach combining surgery, immunotherapy, radiation, and chemotherapy. Integrative therapies are used to manage side effects including nausea, anxiety, depression, pain, malnutrition, and lymphedema. The original headquarters of the Cancer Treatment Centers of America was in Illinois, was moved to Florida in 2015, and renamed. The CTCA then Became the Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global, Inc.
