Three organizations together gathered data and created a new solution to use clinical workflows in the Allscripts Sunrise electronic health record. Cancer Treatment Centers of America, NantHealth and Allscripts will now implement this solution. This system is custom created, and it will help patients receive better care. It will also allow specialists to share and use data from different cancer cases. A lot of oncological data was written on note cards and creating an online system was crucial for both involved sides.
Data Gathering and Use
Linking different forms of cancer to the most optimal treatment options was also important. It will help diagnosis to reach patients faster. Doctors no longer will need to play the guessing game because the data will continually be updated and improved. Researchers and developers were working on a new ecosystem to have the high standards of Cancer Treatment Centers of America for patient care.
Oncologists now will be able to create lists of possible treatment or therapy options for each type of cancer. This way they will not have to draw up a separate plan, perform the comparison between available medications in the market or spend hours with online ordering systems.
This system will also give a more comprehensive understanding of their treatment and offer more transparency around the cancer care sector. Patients will be able to see the data about their treatment, statistics and medication list among other important details.
