Cancer Treatment Centers of America Publishes Sixth Annual Summary of Patient Treatment Results

Corporate | January 8, 2019

Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) has released its sixth annual summary of Patient Treatment Results, a comprehensive presentation of patient treatment outcomes for 11 cancer types. The 2018/2019 publication provides data on five-year survival rates, safety and quality of care measurements during treatment, patient self-reports of quality of life and the overall patient experience.

“We believe that all patients should have access to as much information as possible in order to make the most informed decisions about their care,” says Maurie Markman, MD, President of Medicine & Science at CTCA®. “CTCA was one of the first cancer care providers in the nation to make treatment results available to the general public and, to our knowledge, this publication is among the most comprehensive presentations of treatment results now published by any cancer care provider.”

The publication of these results is a demonstration of CTCA’s commitment to maintain an industry-leading standard in transparency about clinical outcomes and to provide both the general public and policymakers with important information about the overall patient experience. The report is available for download at cancercenter.com/ctca-results/.
