How Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is Advancing Cancer Treatment and Care through a Collective Technology Solution, Clinical Pathways

Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has undoubtedly played a significant role in the fight against cancer. In recent efforts, the network entered into a partnership with both Allscripts and NantHealth to implement Clinical Pathways. This technical solution allows NantHealth’s eviti® to access the clinical workflows in Allscripts Sunrise EHR. The flawless integration of eviti®, NantHealth’s clinical decision support solution, helps the Clinical Pathways program to aid in informing the cancer treatment process without interfering with the doctor’s clinical workflow.

George Daneker, Jr., the managing director and chief medical officer at CTCA’s Southeastern Regional Medical Center, said that Clinical Pathways offers all the necessary cancer treatment options. The platform also eliminates the possibility of guesswork by physicians who are routinely overwhelmed with new oncology research and data. As such, Clinical Pathways presents treatment options that are designed to match its standard of care. They are meant for cancer patients to review and pick the option that is both safe and efficient for them.

The integration of Allscripts Sunrise EHR with NantHealth’s eviti solution enables physicians to draw their information from an Evidence-Based Medical Library that is unbiased. This library is compiled from oncology associations, peer-reviewed literature, and government agencies.
