Raysearch Receives First Order for the Raycare Oncology Information System

January 18, 2018 – Anderson Regional Cancer Center (ARCC) in Meridian, Mississippi, has placed the first order for RayCare, a next-generation oncology information system (OIS). RayCare is an innovative system designed to support comprehensive cancer care. It integrates seamlessly with the RayStation treatment planning system, but that’s just the start – RayCare will connect all the oncology disciplines, enabling users to fluidly coordinate tasks and ensure optimal use of resources.

Over subsequent releases, RayCare will evolve into a machine learning OIS with unique capabilities to coordinate oncology tasks, supporting comprehensive cancer care organized around each patient’s needs. Many cancer patients receive a combination of treatment types, driving the need for combined workflows for radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery.

ARCC decided to map out a future for their clinical workflows that would support advanced technology and data driven decision making. They determined that the best approach would be to move to a new treatment planning system and a new oncology information system that together would support their linacs and TomoTherapy systems, in order to have a unified platform for planning, treatment and assessment.

Paul King, Chief Medical Physicist, says: “We evaluated all the leading systems and were extremely impressed by the possibilities of RayCare. It delivers on everything we were looking for. Getting all of these pieces integrated together will help us tremendously.”
