The Cancer Treatment Centers of America have collaborated with Allscripts and NantHealth to implement a customized technical solution. This will give them access to the workflow contained in the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health records. This program gives information regarding the process of treating cancer without any interruption to the physician. Hundreds of oncologists nationwide have made contributions and the result is a collection of data regarding cancer.
The new system will show all of the treatment options available and prevent guesswork. A patients standard for care will be customized, efficient and safe. The oncologists will have access to the latest cancer research, complimentary therapies and treatment regimens. Supportive therapies and clinical approaches based on evidence will be used to optimize a patients cancer treatment. Also included are the current guidelines, adverse drug reactions, response rates and toxicity.
Since the system has an integrated platform the medical personnel can compare and discuss different treatment regimens and have more confidence in their diagnosis and treatment. The approval of insurance providers can be expedited with data providing the necessary information regarding treatment strategies. In addition the regimen of chemotherapy as well as the ordering process are improved. Information can also be retrieved from a medical library which covers the cost of treatments, clinical outcomes, toxicities and literature.
