Cancer Treatment Centers of America Spearheading a Revolutionary Cancer Treatment Approach in America

According to the American Cancer Society, as 2017 ends, over 1,688,780 new cancers cases will have been reported, and over 600,920 cancer deaths will have occurred in the U.S. The trend is worrying. However, forward-thinking healthcare companies such as Cancer Treatment Centers of America (sometimes shortened to CTCA), Allscripts, and NantHealth are seeking to reverse the depressing trend. The three companies recently collaborated in developing a comprehensive and custom oncology treatment platform, Clinical Pathways, which is likely to revolutionize how cancer patients access medical assistance.
How will the collaboration work? eviti®, a NantHealth clinical decision support solution, will be supplied with information from Allscripts’ electronic health record (EHR). Clinical Pathways relies on the link between EHR and eviti to provide invaluable information required by a physician for cancer treatment process without unnecessary interruptions to his/her workflow.
Chief Medical Officer at CTCA—George Daneker Jr.—threw his weight behind Clinical Pathways. According to him, the platform is a source of appropriate treatment options. He further states that the platform offers relief to medical practitioners who are often overwhelmed by new data and oncology research leading to guesswork filling knowledge gaps. Daneker affirms that all the treatment options available in Clinical Pathways are up to the CTCA’s standards and whatever a patient chooses is safe and efficient.
When Clinical Pathways is engaged, it provides a wealth of information for a patient. Some of the information provided by the platform include personalized treatment regimens specific to the patient, comparisons between treatment options, and supporting clinical data, etc.
CTCA is dedicated to serving cancer patients in the U.S. To this end, CTCA has five hospitals spread across the U.S with its headquarters located in Boca Raton, Florida. CTCA is known for its integrative approach to cancer treatment which involves conventional methods coupled with therapies.

Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega-The Rupert Murdoch of The Spanish Speaking Universe

If at all there is anyone who can be called the Rupert Murdoch of the Spanish-speaking world of South America, it has to be media mogul Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega. His organization Groupo Televisa, S.A., of which he is Managing Director, and Executive Vice President straddles the Spanish media universe like a Colossus.

That being stated there are some other leading companies, particularly in Mexico, who apart from Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega led Groupo Televisa, S.A., are doing quite well. TV Azteca, for example, is a pretty formidable TV company as well, second only to Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega’s Televisa. Among magazines, Nexos and Proceso have long been the frontrunners. But of late the competition had hotted up with the entry of worthy contenders like Gatopardo, Chilango, and Emeequis.

Coming back to Televisa the force behind its tremendous success has got to be Alfonso de Noriega. An LLB from Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico he became Executive Vice President of Group Televisa in 2000. Before that, he ran the law firm Mijares, Angoitia, Cortes, y Fuentes, which he had founded for five years.

Quite a thoroughbred corporate honcho Noriega is on the boards of many companies; likewise, he is a director of many businesses. All of this is a result of his sterling business abilities. It is not surprising therefore to discover that he is extremely well regarded by his industry peers.

To look at the Mexican magazine market once again, it is quite interesting to note that local content is of the essence. This is especially true of Vertigo and Zocalo. Letras Libres on the other hand, as the name possibly suggests has artistic pretensions. The fact of the matter is that the Mexican media landscape is undoubtedly very exciting with plenty of vibrancy and verve. It really is a good place to be with so much happening.

Of course, regarding transnational appeal and sheer scale of size, you have to hand it to Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega, and Groupo Televisa, S.A. who hold unchallenged sway over the Spanish-speaking parts of South America and in all likelihood will continue to do so.
