Founded in 1885, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is the oldest private cancer center in the world. For the past 130 years, the cancer center has dedicated itself to providing first-class patient care for cancer patients. This has been coupled with innovative research and outstanding educational programs. Today, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center is one of 47 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers that combine are committed to fighting cancer with scientific research and clinical treatment to fight cancer.
The success of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center’s model of operation is fostered by the close working relationship between their team of medical practitioners and scientists. The collaboration has helped the center come up with effective techniques for prevention, early detection, treatment and control of cancer. This has been led to numerous success stories against cancer in both children and adults.
One of the things that set the cancer center from the rest is that it offers specialized care and treatment. Their doctors do not focus on just treating the illness but also ensuring that your patient can resume the normal lifestyle as soon as possible. To achieve this, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has dedicated a lot of its resources towards finding how things such as genetics determine how a person reacts to a certain treatment method.
Modern technological advancement has facilitated a lot of the research done by the center's researchers. This has seen them collaborate with various technological giants such as IBM to create solutions. One of such solutions has been the Watson Oncology system that is still undergoing development and improvement.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center has great enthusiasm for technology. Tablets are already in use in different aspects of the center’s research and treatment. However, doing research or handling a patient while holding a tablet or any other device can lead to inefficiency. Tryten’s Nova Cart for Medical Tablets helps the scientists and doctors to continue using the tablets without much trouble. It holds the tablets securely and can be readily disinfected. Its customized Nova Cart Case can also be purchased at Tryten for storing the Nova Cart, especially during transportation.
