Elekta Impac, Siemens Interface for Cancer Treatment Interoperability

MOSAIQ by Elekta

September 9, 2009 - The Edith Cavell Clinic in Brussels, Belgium, recently installed Siemens’ Artiste system to use with its Elekta MOSAIQ 2.0 and its next generation DICOM-enabled interface. This interface was developed through a collaboration between Elekta Impac Software and Siemens.

Phillipe Warnier, M.D., of the Edith Cavell Clinic explained, "We had already been using MOSAIQ for five years, and chose to upgrade to MOSAIQ 2.0 with the purchase of a new treatment system." The Edith Cavell Clinic is currently treating about 25 patients a day, and Dr. Warnier hopes that within a month, that will grow to at least 40 patients a day.

MOSAIQ oncology information management system manages all aspects of patient care, including RT simulation, planning, setup, verification, delivery, review and analysis.* It's capable of supporting any combination of treatment planning/delivery equipment, and enables customers to have access to the latest treatment techniques from major vendors.

Integrated with MOSAIQ radiation oncology is the MOSAIQ image-enabled electronic medical record (EMR), which supports the entire cancer care team by uniting diverse systems and devices. The Integrating the Healthcare Environment for Radiation Oncology (IHE-RO) initiative seeks to improve the practice of radiation oncology through a standardized exchange of information. Working through the IHE-RO, Elekta Impac Software leads the way in promoting open systems standards, leveling the interoperability playing field and affording vendors greater latitude to focus on maximizing efficiency and achieving high patient throughput.
