Elekta Announces First Step in Integrating Treatment Planning with MOSAIQ Oncology Information System

Elekta receives 510(k) clearance for MOSAIQ Evaluate, a toolset that integrates treatment planning features into MOSAIQ OIS

January 7, 2013 — As part of a process to completely integrate the patient's electronic medical record (EMR) with treatment planning activities, Elekta has introduced MOSAIQ Evaluate, a toolset that unites plan and dose review capabilities in a single software framework, MOSAIQ Oncology Information System (OIS). Uniting MOSAIQ and powerful treatment planning review capabilities streamlines planning activities inside the patient chart, reducing patient wait times and delays and improving efficiency and productivity in the department. Elekta recently received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for MOSAIQ Evaluate.

"The development of MOSAIQ Evaluate establishes a new standard of oncology treatment planning management in a single software environment. Our belief is that clinical decision-making is improved when the radiotherapy team can access and review treatment and patient data from one source, MOSAIQ," says Todd Powell, executive vice president, Elekta Software. "It's the first step in a process in which we will steadily integrate advanced toolsets inside MOSAIQ, ultimately creating an advanced, comprehensive treatment planning solution inside the EMR."

With MOSAIQ Evaluate, the entire radiation oncology team can access and review treatment plans and patient data from the patient's chart, streamlining the radiotherapy workflow. It enables plan review from virtually any treatment planning system and for any treatment modality, in addition to comparison of multiple plans.

To support the multidisciplinary team, MOSAIQ Evaluate offers specific benefits for the radiation oncologist, the physicist and the dosimetrist. Radiation oncologists and physicists will now be able to review plans at their MOSAIQ workstation and view a "to-do" list of plans needing review. MOSAIQ Evaluate also enables the physicist to identify approved plan information side-by-side with all treatment fields, approve treatment fields directly from the Plan Worklist, and view imported DRR's alongside the treatment plan. With MOSAIQ Evaluate, dosimetrists will be able to use the Plan Worklist to identify approved plans, triggering the next step in the workflow.
