A new collaboration among Cancer Treatment Centers of America, NantHealth and Allscripts is helping doctors make treatment decisions and share information. The Clinical Pathways program now includes access to NantHealth’s decision-making assistance technology. The result is that oncologists throughout the United States have access to information and data like never before.
With the new technology, doctors see all possible treatment options for a patient. There’s less guesswork, while patients have more choices for their treatment plan. With the new partnership, Clinical Pathways technology is integrated right into the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health records. Each patient can compare treatment options and costs in their local area just by pressing a screen. Cancer Treatment Centers of America hopes that the new initiative will improve patient experiences and transparency.
