Cancer Treatment Centers Of America Unveils New Electronic Medical Records Format

The Cancer Treatment Centers of America recently unveiled a major advance in the way physicians, medical staff, and patients access and receive information held in medical records. As the drive to move the majority of medical records to a digital format gathers pace, Cancer Treatment Centers of America has identified areas where existing records can be of aid to cancer patients as they look for the most effective ways of treating their cancers; alongside helping introduce new treatments the software developed by Cancer Treatment Centers of America, NantHealth, and Allscripts will also maintain the privacy of patients at all times.

The latest developments in the area of digital medical records will make it possible for physicians to search across different treatment outlets to discover which treatments worked and which failed for patients at similar stages of cancer to their own. Privacy will always be maintained for patients with only information about conditions and treatment options being released between physicians; working in real time, the software will allow patients and physicians to explore the best treatment options available. Patients will also find it easier to work alongside their own physicians to become as involved as possible in their own treatment at all times.

Founded in 1988, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America was a response to the death of founder Robert J. Stephenson’s mother to a form of cancer he believed should have been treatable. Initially based in Illinois, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America have expanded to include five locations across the U.S.
