Austrian Hospital to Implement Radiation IT
The newly-constructed Vöcklabruck Hospital in Upper Austria will implement a digital radio-oncology suite provided by a Swedish healthcare IT firm, Elekta.
The implementation cost is estimated at Û5 million and is part of a 10-year contract between the hospital and vendor. At Vöcklabruck, considered one of Europe’s most modern healthcare facilities, an in-depth evaluation of available treatment systems and information management software systems has been conducted before choosing a specific vendor. The hospital consulted a range of healthcare facilities using radio-oncology IT from different vendors, with the aim of finding the best possible treatment for its patients.
Two Elekta Synergy systems will be installed at Vöcklabruck in the spring of 2008. The hospital will also use a variety of supporting systems and solutions, including IMPAC Medical Systems’ MOSAIQ electronic medical records, patient fixation and positioning technology developed by Medical Intelligence and treatment planning software from 3D Line.
