Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), which makes the most of its personalized patient-centered approach to cancer care, has teamed up with WebMD, the Internet’s leading source for health and medical information, to lend patients a hand throughout their cancer experience.
The collaboration, which allows both the CTCA and WebMD to bring their strategies together, will include supplying information to patients from diagnosis and remedies to survivor and caregiver support. The partnership also aims to let more people know about their cancer care choices.
In addition, it is anticipated that after reviewing information posted on the Internet, people will more likely contact their physicians.
WebMD and the CTCA also teamed up on how getting a second opinion may help patients find additional treatment alternatives or strengthen an existing remedy, and learn more about CTCA.
The CTCA utilizes advanced options and the most advanced technologies that include chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Also to help patients deal with pain, tiredness and other side effects, the CTCA provides fact-based supportive therapies so patients can maintain their strength and awareness while going through treatment.
Each patient at the CTCA is assigned a team of experts who furnish them with a care plan customized to their specific needs, and follow their Twitter.
Richard Stephenson founded CTCA in 1988 following the death of his mother from cancer. The first center to open was in Zion, Illinois. Additional centers are located in Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Georgia.
The CTCA team of oncologists, who are aware that two cancers, like no two people, are exactly alike, deliver care for cancers that include breast, lung, prostate, melanoma, throat, ovarian, pancreatic and more.
