University of Wisconsin-Madison Partners With RaySearch on RayCare OIS

University will co-develop next-generation oncology information system at the main campus and three satellite clinics

University of Wisconsin-Madison Partners With RaySearch on RayCare OIS

June 21, 2017 — The Department of Human Oncology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has entered into an agreement with RaySearch to pioneer the RayCare oncology information system (OIS). The new system will be used in the department’s multidisciplinary approach to cancer care and its focus on cutting-edge techniques.

RayCare facilitates comprehensive cancer treatment by unifying workflows for medical oncology, radiation oncology and surgical oncology. It helps promote a patient-centered approach to cancer treatment while increasing efficiency across the disciplines and meeting the demands of emerging techniques.

The system will be co-developed at the University of Wisconsin—Madison and three satellite clinics, and should be prepared for clinical operation thereafter. Ultimately, all the university’s oncology activities will be assessed for coordination through RayCare. As the university has also selected RayStation as its treatment planning system, the efficiency gains provided by the integration of RayStation and RayCare will be evaluated.

John Bayouth, chief of radiation oncology physics at the UW-Department of Human Oncology, said: “As a forward-looking center, we are constantly exploring new ways to improve patient care. RayCare is being designed to coordinate our oncology disciplines and our hope is to realize the full potential of our diverse clinical resources.”

RayCare is the next-generation OIS developed from the ground up by RaySearch to support the complex logistical challenges in modern, large-scale radiation therapy centers. RayCare integrates the high-performance radiation therapy algorithms available in RayStation and adds advanced features for clinical resource optimization, workflow automation and adaptive radiation therapy.
