Based on research from the National Cancer Institute, approximately 38.5 percent of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer at any site. A recent study revealed that in 2014, more than 147,000,000 Americans were living with cancer.
While there is a variety of cancer options treatment available, not all options a will work for all patients. Because of this Cancer Treatment Centers of America has joined forces with NantHealth and Allscripts to help simplify the screening process of treatment options easier for oncologists. Through Clinical Pathways, a new innovative EHR platform, oncologists can now identify the best treatment options for each patient through their eviti platform. This helps eliminate guesswork for practitioners, and can also provide patients with more peace of mind regarding their treatment process. The new system, designed with the patient in mind utilizes the latest cancer research available to determine the best treatment options and regimens for each individual patient.
This breakthrough approach to cancer treatment cannot only simply the treatment screening process for practitioners but may also improve the quality of lives for cancer patients. The process of finding, properly diagnosing and treating cancer can be lengthy. With the use of the Clinical Pathways system, oncologists can reduce the amount of time needed to determine the best option for treatment.
