Cancer Treatment Centers of America Enters Into a Partnership with Two Other Giant Cancer Facilities to Launch an Integrated Platform for Cancer Treatment

Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) has joined hands with the NantHealth and Allscripts to implement a custom technical solution. The new platform will enable Eviti to access clinical workflows in the detailed Allscripts’ Sunrise electronic health record. The seamless integration of the clinical decision support solution will help the Clinical pathways to report the cancer treatment progress without coming into the way of the physician’s medical workflow.

The interface of the Nanthealth operating system (NantOS) was designed taking into consideration the input of some oncologists from every corner the nation, and it holds a complete compilation of the ever changing cancer care data. The new system is designed and built to help cancer patients’ access better medical services. Clinical pathways put together the most recent cancer research, treatment procedures and corresponding therapies that should accompany such procedures into the Allscripts Sunrise HER. Therefore, it gives the oncologists the opportunity to create an effective treatment procedure and therapies for their patients.

Clinical Pathways encourages a higher degree of transparency around the therapeutic selection and care delivery for cancer patients. It also helps to significantly improve the quality and efficiency by cutting down variability in care. With such an all-inclusive platform, patients and their physicians can now discuss and compare different treatment regimens, which enhance the patient’s assurance of the suitability of the proposed treatment and therapies. Clinical Pathways can also hasten approval by health insurance providers by providing them with the essential clinical data to support the proposed treatment regimens.

Eva Moskowitz and Success Academy Open Online Resources for Educators Nationwide

Eva Moskowitz, CEO of Success Academy, is making headlines by announcing the opening of the Educational Institute, an online library of resources for charter schools to access that emulates the winning formula perfected in her New York charter schools. Success Academy has 41 brick and mortar locations currently, and hopes to use the online platform to expand to 100 charter locations nationwide by 2024.


A condo in Midtown was recently purchased by Success Academy, and Eva Moskowitz stated in a recent press conference she plans to use the location for training educators in the charter system. One of her highest priorities is providing students with a love and capability of reading, and Moskowitz wants to empower colleagues to do the same in their communities.


The Ed Institute will feature video’s, lesson plan’s, reading lists, and more through the online platform. Educators can be confident that the system Eva Moskowitz is offering is highly effective judging by the results of Success Academy schools performance in New York standardized testing. The lowest performing school ranked higher in overall reading comprehension and math test scores than other charter schools with a student base in more affluent areas. In fact, most of the 14,000 students currently enrolled in Success Academy come from low income homes, making the test results even more impressive.


The Broad Prize was recently awarded to Eva Moskowitz, offering further evidence of her “outstanding academic outcomes”. No other charter school network has been able to consistently perform at the level of Success Academy, and it is hoped that the Ed Institute will help change this. In fact, Success Academy already sees regular visitors observing lessons, and students are accustomed to both parents and other educators being in the classroom with them. This transparency is a breath of fresh air for smaller charter school networks looking to change their curriculum.


Teachers receive guidance on how to structure their lesson plans. “Shared text” is a focus that has students reading aloud portions of the texts, and reading lists are given for at home learning. This is part of the “balanced literacy” vision that teaches students to learn how to communicate more effectively with all members of the community.


Another recommendation is to enable teachers to focus solely on educating children, and removes the administrative burden from their shoulders with the creation of an operations team. This team handles all items not directly related to educating. When the model is fully enacted, it is easy to see how Eva Moskowitz is a pioneer in charter education, and offers creative solutions for revolutionizing early childhood education.

Myths About The Koch Brothers Debunked

The Koch brothers have created one of the largest and most successful private companies in the world. Elder brother Charles Koch, who is 80 years old and graduated from the Massachusetts of Technology serves as president of Koch Industries. The firm has yearly revenues totaling about $115 billion dollars. It also employs over 100,000 employees. Younger brother David Koch serves as the vice president of Koch Industries. He also graduated from MIT like his older brother.

The Koch Brothers are known for their philanthropy and support for political movements that support conservative policies and libertarianism. Charles massive wealth and huge contributions to conservative groups and think tanks such as Americans For Prosperity, the Cato Institute and many others have drawn accusations against them from the media that they are trying to gain political clout and power. This distortion by the media and some journalists couldn’t be further from the truth. Charles Koch is simply trying to support libertarian economic causes and conservative policies that have helped make America one of the wealthiest and strongest countries in the world. Below I debunk some of the myths about the Koch brothers.

The brothers have been accused of entering the political scene to oppose Barack Obama and his liberal policies. This is outright false. The Koch brothers have been actively involved in supporting research groups and think tanks such as the CATO institute since the 1970’s. David Koch was even actively involved in the Libertarian political party in the 1980’s when he ran as a vice presidential candidate. To further disprove that the brothers are just entering the political scene to try and stop Barack Obama and liberals, is the fact that the brothers have opposed many of George W. Bush’s policies. They opposed some regulations and an expansion of social spending proposed by the Bush administration.

Another misconception of Charles and David Koch is that the political network they have established in the United States is their own “pet project.” The current Koch Network actually has hundreds of other wealthy families and donors who like the Koch brothers want to see more conservative and libertarian policies in the country. It is true that the Koch brothers are one of the biggest donors and that they are one of the wealthiest in the network. However, they are not the only players in the Koch Network. Yet they are unfairly targeted and singled out.
