In early 2016, Cancer Treatment Centers of America, CTCA, alongside Allscripts and NantHealth started planning on a solution of how to enhance and improve the quality of care they provide to their patients. It is through the implementation of a customized technical program that can access the clinical workflow in the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record (EHR). With the integration of this system, the cancer treatment process on a patient can be tracked without unnecessarily interrupting the clinical workflow for the physician. The system’s interface was created with the input from various oncologists in the US and therefore, holds a huge collection of cancer care data, thus eliminating potential guesswork from the clinicians.
Given that every patient and cancer differs from one patient to another, all CTCA used state of the art technology with highly trained experts to treat cancer. They also help each patient in managing their cancer-related side effects which may include nausea, fatigue, pain, and neuropathy. The main goal of the CTCA is to help you in maintaining the necessary strength and stamina to proceed with your treatment and resume your normal life activities. This clearly shows the Clinical Pathways have been designed with the patients’ well-being in mind.
All CTCA hospitals have been recognized for their strong scores in customer satisfaction. They received the following awards; Full Standards Compliance by the Joint Commission, Top Performer on Key Quality Measures by The Joint Commission and the Magnet Award by the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center (ANCC). The CTCA hospitals treat cancer using the following conventional approaches; surgery, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. They also provide evidence-informed support therapy to help in managing the various cancer-related side-effects.
