November 24, 2015 — RaySearch Laboratories AB announced that The US Oncology Network has selected RayStation to be offered throughout the network as one of the available radiation therapy treatment planning systems.

The US Oncology Network is one of America’s largest networks of integrated, community-based oncology practices, comprised of more than 350 sites and approximately 1,000 independent, community-based physicians who treat more than 800,000 patients annually. 90 sites are radiation oncology facilities and about 140 physicians specialize in radiation oncology. Many of the centers offer a complete array of treatments to give patients a continuity of care that is state-of-the-art, yet cost-effective. Physicians throughout the network collaborate and take part in programs to assure that they are optimizing treatment possibilities.

“We initiated an effort almost two years ago to assess treatment planning solutions being developed in the marketplace,” said Jeff Limmer, director of medical physics and quality, The US Oncology Network. “In this era of quickly emerging technologies, it is extremely important to continually assess projected capability, and then to plan, in both clinically and fiscally responsible ways, for the incorporation of tools and resources which provide high-quality care for patients. RayStation will be key in helping us achieve our goals.”

Radiation therapy departments in The US Oncology Network now have the opportunity to select RayStation as their treatment planning system. The first purchase made was at the Texas Center for Proton Therapy in June 2015.
