Harris Corporation is teaming with Cancer Treatment Services International (CTSI), a developer, owner and operator of outpatient cancer treatment centers, to bring high quality, cost-effective cancer care to patients in regions worldwide.
Under the agreement, Harris will serve as the exclusive technology provider for CTSI’s growing network of oncology clinics, including a facility currently under construction in Hyderabad, India.
Harris and CTSI will collaborate to develop and integrate advanced healthcare IT and clinical approaches.
Harris Healthcare Solutions vice president and general manager Jim Traficant said they are collaborating with some of the cancer experts in the world to develop technology-enabled care delivery models.
"This partnership brings an unprecedented opportunity to deliver advanced cancer treatment solutions by leveraging core Harris capabilities to create situational awareness at the point of care," Traficant said.
CTSI president and CEO Joseph Nicholas said Harris is their preferred technology partner, and their capabilities in areas such as IT infrastructure, advanced global image management and healthcare system interoperability enable them to deliver advanced cancer care on a global scale.
"We believe this cooperative effort will generate game-changing new solutions that enhance both the clinical and business aspects of patient treatment," Nicholas said.
