May 17 2018 Read 275 Times

Healthcare services provider Apollo Hospitals Group has selected Elekta’s vendor-neutral, open source MOSAIQ oncology information system for its Apollo Proton Cancer Centre (APCC) in Chennai, India. The proton therapy solution is being provided by IBA (Ion Beam Applications).

Ranjit Pradhan, Senior Vice President Portfolio & Business Development Software Solutions at Elekta, said: “A key aspect in Apollo Hospitals choice of Elekta is interoperability. Our collaboration with IBA and Equicare is just one example of how we are building a strong network of key ‘best of breed’ vendors as part of our partnerships and open connectivity.”

Dr. Preetha Reddy, Executive Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals Group said: “The Apollo Group is at the forefront of leveraging technologies that improve patient care and create efficient workflows for clinicians to seamlessly deliver healthcare of high quality. Today, our hospitals are amongst the first to introduce filmless and paperless technology that deliver care through fully integrated electronic medical records and hospital information systems. Elekta’s collaboration with IBM Watson Health to unite its ‘Watson for Oncology’ computing technology with Elekta’s portfolio of digital solutions was a key factor that influenced our decision to choose Elekta.

“With Elekta’s MOSAIQ® oncology information system at APCC, we aspire to provide the most advanced, comprehensive and efficient care management for radiation, medical and surgical oncology to our patients. We are planning to commence our proton therapy unit by September this year."
