Atlanta, GA United States — Thursday, February 16, 2012
Acknowledging the importance of dedicated information management systems for radiation and medical oncology practices, Elekta will demonstrate the most recent version of its MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System (OIS) at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society’s 2012 conference (HIMSS12), Feb. 20-24, in Las Vegas.
MOSAIQ is a comprehensive OIS that centralizes traditional radiation oncology, particle therapy and medical oncology patient data into a single user interface, accessible by multidisciplinary teams across multiple locations. MOSAIQ provides hospitals and oncology staff access to the underlying clinical and administrative data, improving both clinical care and operational efficiency.
Visitors to Elekta booth #1455 will learn how MOSAIQ integrates with a diverse array of hospital systems, treatment devices and imaging systems, increasing accessibility to critical data anytime by remote users on various platforms. MOSAIQ captures the entire patient chart in a common database that users can customize, allowing radiation oncologists and medical oncologists to coordinate care for complex cases. In addition to hospital based centers, MOSAIQ provides all the clinical, administrative and billing needs allowing the stand alone centers to have one, complete, comprehensive oncology system.
MOSAIQ is “Best in KLAS” for 2011
At a HIMSS presentation, MOSAIQ will be recognized for its number one ranking in the recently released 2011 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. The report is a summary of performance data collected over the past 12 months and ranks the top overall vendors.
“MOSAIQ integrates with hundreds of hospital and laboratory systems at facilities around the world,” says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President, Elekta Software. “We are enormously gratified that our customer respondents in the KLAS survey recognized the value of MOSAIQ for managing their patients’ care. I believe it clearly demonstrates the strengths of the MOSAIQ community and how we collectively develop and support each other in our common goal of effectively managing cancer.”
KLAS’s data are also supported by the U.S. News & World Report 2011-12 best hospital rankings, which indicate that 46 out of the 50 top-ranked cancer hospitals are users of Elekta’s oncology software.
