Cancer Treatment Centers of America has just announced the launch of Clinical Pathways which is a platform oncologist can refer to in order to use evidence based treatment regimens customized to fit their patients’ needs.
Clinical Pathways has been launched to provide appropriate treatment options for patients to eliminate the guesswork clinicians have to do when treating their patients. The launch of the platform was designed with patients in mind so they can review and choose the treatment options available to them that are safe and efficient for their current treatment. These customized treatment regiments are specific to the patient, the state of their disease, and their health.
This is a callback to the necessity for Cancer Treatment Centers of America when the founder, Richard J. Stephenson, witnessed his mother suffering from the disease. She had been taken to the hospital for treatment, but Stephenson was unsatisfied with the treatment options available to her. His mother passed away not soon after contracting the disease and this led to the first CTCA hospital being opened in 1988. The first hospital opened up in the Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion, Illinois.
The first hospital opening up was only the beginning with four more opening from 2005 to 2012. When the CTCA opened it soon opened up its first patient information and concierge in the Lomas de Chapultepec neighborhood of Mexico City on April 20, 2015. CTCA has also continued to remain active in the Middle East and other areas of the world like Latin America and the Caribbean. They offer patients in these regions the opportunity to pursue treatment options that may have otherwise been unavailable to them.
The goal of CTCA is to treat each and every patient and their disease with personalized care and to develop a regimen to help treat them so they can live a more fulfilling life.
