Accuray and IMPAC to link CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System





Accuray Incorporated and IMPAC Medical Systems, Inc. announced that they will collaborate to develop inter-operability between the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System and the  MOSAIQ® oncology information system. Using DICOM standard interface protocols, both treatment plan and delivery information from the CyberKnife System will automatically feed directly into the IMPAC electronic medical record.

Centralization of patient oncology data into a single, easily-accessible location is essential for state-of-the-art cancer care.  With this capability, clinicians will have all necessary information readily available to make timely and informed medical decisions.

The CyberKnife System produces unique treatment records that are a vital element to the comprehensive patient chart. MOSAIQ’s electronic data exchange automatically coordinates with the CyberKnife System, eliminating the need for manual data entry.

Euan S. Thomson, Ph.D., president and CEO of Accuray Incorporated said, We were pleased to partner with IMPAC on this project. The majority of our CyberKnife customers utilize IMPAC’s oncology information system to manage their departments and patient records. This collaboration provides considerable value to our mutual customers, not only saving them time and effort, but also ensuring high-quality care

Jay Hoey, president and CEO of IMPAC Medical Systems said, Since 1990, IMPAC has remained committed to vendor independent connectivity, enabling cancer centers to integrate data from various treatment delivery systems regardless of manufacturer. This solution represents our continued dedication to the open-systems initiatives as outlined by IHE-RO.
