In 2016 Cancer Treatment centers of America, Nanthealth, and Allscripts started working together to help make it easier for all of the doctors helping their patients with cancer through the electronic health records. The Clinical Pathways program is going to work with the doctors by helping to inform the doctors of the latest research available that pertains to that patient, help to plan treatment plans, and therapies for the patient. This program is going to help the doctors work quickly to come up with the custom treatment plans each of these patients need. It will also offer comparisons in the available treatment options, and have the capabilities of a safe and efficient means of entering orders for the patients. As well as so much more.
