In an effort to provide better care to cancer patients, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has announced an exciting new partnership with NantHealth and Allscripts to provide a new initiative, Clinical Pathways.
The push behind this initiative is the need physicians have for more methods by which they can administer treatment to patients based on their personal needs without disrupting the daily workflow of an outpatient care facility. George Daneker, Chief Medical Officer for CTCA, said that too much time is spent on guesswork. Physicians work tirelessly to figure out what treatment path is best for each patient. Clinical Pathways attempts to create an information infrastructure that rises to CTCA’s treatment standards while increasing the speed with which care is provided.
This also allows for an increase in transparency. Patients will have increased access to information about their therapy selection, empowering them when discussing treatment options. For physicians this can reduce the time spent waiting for approval from insurance companies because of the glut of data available.
