October 9, 2013 — Since December 2012, clinicians at Kettering Medical Center have been able to access — on Elekta’s Mosaiq Oncology Information Management System — the electronic medical records of patients who undergo treatment on the facility’s Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion system. Leksell GammaPlan Connectivity provides integration with Mosaiq for complete patient charting and a streamlined clinical workflow.

“The complete picture of any Gamma Knife patient’s case is accessible from any Mosaiq workstation in the hospital – just like any patient receiving linac-based radiotherapy,” said Christopher Wennerstrom, M.S., diplomat, American Board of Radiology (ABR) and physicist, Kettering Medical Center. “We can bring up the treatment plan from Leksell GammaPlan with details including the total dose to the lesion, each beam’s coordinates, all the gamma angles and the images of the relevant radiosurgery shots. It’s invaluable. You can recreate what happened to the patient from the Mosaiq record.”

In addition to importing all historical, current and future Gamma Knife plans into Mosaiq, clinical users can also interface with billing systems, import appointment scheduling and lab results, and export lab orders. In addition, eScribe in Mosaiq enables clinical merge fields to be automated into documents, reducing administration time and freeing up clinical resources. Mosaiq also features Quality Assurance tools to support patient safety. Mosaiq Evaluate provides the clinical staff with side-by-side comparison of plans from any oncology treatment planning system allowing plan review and approval in a distributed manner.  Workflow automation can be customized to meet the unique needs of the center using Mosaiq IQ Scripts.

“Our Gamma Knife program used to be an island with its own method of maintaining electronic medical records, but now that it is united in Mosaiq with the radiation therapy department, it has become a very efficient way to track the treatment history of all patients receiving some form of radiation therapy,” said Wennerstrom. “Having all your patient records available for your clinicians when they have to make their decisions is a huge patient benefit. Equally important, since all the Gamma Knife isocenters and prescriptions go into Mosaiq, patient safety is enhanced.”

Kettering Medical Center has been operating Gamma Knife technology since 1999, and acquired the latest generation system, Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion, in 2009. Presently, Kettering treats about 150 patients per year with this system.
