In the year 2016, Cancer Treatment Centers of America together with NantHealth and Allscripts came up with the idea to integrate cancer treatment. The initiative would make it easy for cancer patients to understand their treatment programs. This led to the development of clinical pathways. The program was developed through the involvement of various oncologists across America, and it has extensive information on the evolving cancer care.
Clinical pathways provide informed treatment options to cancer patients. It also allows patients to discuss the treatment options available to their clinical officers so that they can choose a treatment that is both cost friendly and most efficient for them.
Clinical pathways also help clinicians to avoid guesswork that could be brought about by being unaware of new information and findings. Clinicians can retrieve data from an Evidence-based Medical collection that comprises of over 2000 most efficient, tested and proven formulas covering all forms of cancers and cancers sub-types. The information is compiled from relevant literature, government agencies, oncology associations, and is maintained by oncology experts. This helps to boost the confidence of the clinicians on having provided the best prescription for a particular diagnosis.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in the year 1988 by Mr. Stephson after his dear mother succumbed to cancer. This is because he was not satisfied with the treatment offered to her. The first hospital was opened at Midwest Regional Medical Center, and CTCA has since developed into a network of five hospitals across America. CTCA’s main function is to provide cancer solutions to adults who have cancer from all over America.
Currently, CTCA has its headquarters in Boca Raton, Florida. It applies conventional means like chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and surgery to help cure cancer. At the same time, it offers programs to manage and handle side effects realized during treatment and after treatment approaches.
