Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is deploying the Intel Health Guide, a personal health system solution that allows physicians and clinicians to proactively monitor their patients' care at home.
The Intel Health Guide combines an in-home patient device, the Intel Health Guide PHS6000, with the Intel Health Care Management Suite, an online interface that allows clinicians to securely monitor patients in their homes and manage care remotely.
CTCA will be able to gather timely information about the status of patients, and collect and prioritize data to monitor and modify their care while at home using the Intel Health Guide.
Additionally, CTCA has enabled the seamless integration of patient data into the hospital network’s electronic health record to provide both patients and oncology care team members with the information and resources they need to make informed decisions about cancer treatment and ongoing care.
CTCA chief medical officer Edgar Staren said their partnership with Intel allows them to proactively bring their services to patients in their homes while enabling them to participate in their own care.
"This program is a natural extension of our fully integrated treatment model Patient Empowered CareSM which puts patients at the center of care, empowering them with information about their condition and treatment as they experience greater communication with and access to their care team," Staren said.
