The Emergence of Clinical Pathways through a Collaboration of CTCA with NantHealth and Allscripts

Cancer Treatment Centers of America partnered with NantHealth and Allscripts to implement eviti, a NantHealth clinical decision platform that allows oncologists to see and evaluate treatment regimens to select an appropriate clinical treatment. The platform will enable oncologists to quick access to clinical workflows in the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record (EHR). Further, eviti will ensure that the Clinical Pathways program engages in inform physicians about the cancer treatment process without disrupting his/her clinical workflow. Further, physicians can assess information from an impartial Evidence-Based Medical Library. The library compiles oncology association, peer-reviewed literature, and government agencies and oncologists run it.

Clinical Pathways

Clinical Pathways incorporates the latest information about cancer research, treatment regimens into the Allscripts Sunrise EHR. This gives oncologists a chance to develop a list of protocols at the point of care. When engaged, eviti provides custom treatment regimens for a specific patient, his/her disease state, and health. Additionally, it supports clinical data and real-time functionality.

Clinical Pathways program establishes transparency around the therapeutic selection and helps to improve efficiency and quality by minimizing variability in care. Therefore, the platform enables patients and physicians to discuss and evaluate their treatment regimens. Clinical Pathways can also accelerate approval from insurance providers through providing clinical data, thus supports selected treatment strategies.
