In 1988 Cancer Treatment Center of America was born. Founded by Richard J Stephenson. They only specialize in cancer treatment for adults. They offer the patient many options as possible; such as genomic testing, and precision cancer treatment. CTCA have five hospitals in the USA. The first cancer hospital to open was in Zion, Illinois. They have a team of oncologists that only treat cancer; however there are many types of cancers ( lung, throat, breast…) .
Each patient have their own team of experts that are involved in every step and they work together in one location. CTCA go beyond traditional treatment. They realize no two cancers are alike and no two people; that is why each patient have their own personal care. They are determined to heal the whole person. They also use different techniques for side effects. CTCA also treats the spiritual part of the patient.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America join other partners to create Clinical Pathways in 2016.
Clinical Pathways combines all the latest cancer resources together; enabling all oncologists access.
Patients and doctors will be able to decide together what will be the best treatment. They can also improve insurance providers wait time by letting them know what exact procedures will be needed.
Clinical Pathways partners : Eviti Solution (health information), ( NantHealth(clinics) and Allscripts ( major in healthcare information), were able to bring all the information they need from the Medical Library and Eviti Solutions was able to give them necessary information on all types of cancer. Their main purpose is the best care for the patient. These health care companies came together to create one of the best cancer treatment centers in America.
