Cancer Treatment Centers of America partnered with Allscripts and NantHealth starting early 2016 to create a new technology called Clinical Pathways. Clinical Pathways is supposed to support and ease the work of the physician and provide the patient with the best possible treatment. It can get confusing for the physician bombarded with new information on treatment and order of treatment for a cancer patient. This technology organizes available knowledge such that the very best possible pathway is clear to the doctor.
Clinical Pathways is primarily meant to help the patient by providing relevant data to the physician ensuring he picks from tried and tested methods and treatment plans. It provides a patient-specific course of therapy, comparisons including pricing, information on drug side-effects and recommended guidelines and medical data to support suggested treatment plans. Clinical Pathways allows the physician access to treatment options for their patients that are supported by clear evidence.
