Cancer Centers of America Teams Up to Launch First of Its Kind Treatment

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has teamed up with Allscripts and NantHealth to launch an innovative approach to cancer case management. NantHealth’s Eviti platform will access data from Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record (EHR). This decision will allow for integration with Clinical Pathways and will allow for information to be accessible without interrupting the physician’s workflow.

“This breakthrough will allow access to all appropriate treatment options and will eliminate potential guesswork by doctors who are often overwhelmed with the amount of new data and treatment options,” said George Daneker, Jr., MD, Chief Medical Officer at CTCA® at Southeastern Regional Medical Center. “Patients will be able to access and review the data, allowing them to choose safe and efficient treatment options.”

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 CTCA.”

The CTCA was founded in 1998. Its first hospital was built in 1988, followed by the construction of four more hospitals from 2005 to 2012. CTCA’s first international information opened in Mexico in 2015.

The CTCA is accredited by multiple organizations. The CTCA has earned Five Star quality ratings by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, and the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers has awarded three-year full accreditation to four of the five CTCA hospitals for their breast cancer treatment programs.

 

The Verdict is in About Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc.

Success rarely occurs by chance and never has this statement been more accurate than the story about the success of Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. The company was started in 1991 as a small title and loan processing company. Today it is one of the largest and fastest growing wholesale document processing company in the world.

 

Many of the top retail lending and mortgage companies rely on and use Nationwide for their primary documents that are used in their closing and mortgage transactions. These are some of the largest mortgage transaction companies in the world.

 

The importance of the service that is provided by Nationwide is evident if you have ever been involved in a property closing yourself. You know then that certain documents have to be a part of the process. The lien on the property will have to have been released, and the title will have to be cleared to be passed on to the new owner. There are other documents that need to be a part of a transaction, but the principle is clear. If there is an inaccuracy or a lost document, the closing will have to be postponed, or worse yet, a buyer may change his or her mind.

 

The criteria for companies like Nationwide that customers use for determining who the want to business with are the speed of delivery and the accuracy of the documents. Nationwide has a rate of successful compliance of 99.89% and a failure rate of only .78%. These figures mean that Nationwide is accurate and on time just about 100% of the time.

 

A big part of the ongoing success of the company revolves around the proper training and monitoring of the employees who work the process. New employees have an intensive three-week training period, and then when they reach their work stations, supervisors continue to shadow them until they are totally immersed in their jobs. The mortgage business has lots of details along the way of the delivery processes, and there are best practices at each step of the way.

 

Danny Byrnes, Vice President of Sales, says that the 25 years that Nationwide has been in business has given them plenty of opportunities to fine-tune the operations. The auditing of the processes has been done by just about everybody including Nationwide. Also, the investment has been made in people and technology which makes the auditing and processing a matter of course now, as all that experience has been automated to a fine degree.
