RaySearch Laboratories AB (publ) announces the release of a new version of RayCare® 3B* with new features and enhancements throughout the system. The oncology information system (OIS) has been developed in partnership with leading oncology centers globally.
RayCare 3B provides new features for managing radiation treatment planning. A plan overview workspace enables further automation of the planning process by utilizing RayCare® workflows and tasks to trigger RayStation®* scripts. Enhanced automation capabilities help reduce the risk of errors, increase treatment planning efficiency, and promote consistency. The new features are also available in the RayCare Flow product license, a productivity package that can be used in co-existence with existing OIS software.
The patient chart has been extended to include workspaces for managing medications, problems and allergies, as well as a comprehensive overview of all patient-related notes and messages. This version offers improved workflow management, task-based offline image review for 2D/3D images, scheduled rules for PACS, and enhanced interoperability with hospital information systems using standardized interfaces.
Eeva-Liisa Karjalainen, Chief Functionality Owner RayCare, RaySearch, says: With the addition of task-based support for scripting we are now in a position to automate all steps in the workflow from planning image acquisition up to treatment plan approval. I am very excited to see how this advanced automation support can transform clinical workflows.”
