The Cancer Treatment Centers of America has teamed up with Allscripts and NantHealth to launch an innovative approach to cancer case management.

The breakthrough platform will allow patients to review custom treatment regimens that patient specific, access to supporting clinical data, and comparisons between different treatment options, including the market cost.

“Cancer Treatment Centers of America, NantHealth, and Allscripts began the planning phase of the project in 2016,” said Allscripts Chief Executive Officer Paul Black. “A thorough analysis of clinical workflow and strategic design have allowed us to deliver a solution that will assist in the delivery of better treatment care options and optimize the quality of care provided by Cancer Treatment Centers of America.”
