This partnership with IMPAC will afford Siemens customers access to IMPAC’s latest innovative oncology information system (OIS) in addition to the radiation therapy systems from Siemens.
Moreover, Siemens and IMPAC will work together to develop interfaces between MOSAIQ and IONTRIS, making it possible to use MOSAIQ with Siemens particle therapy solutions in the future. Under the extended agreement, Siemens will offer the MOSAIQ software as its next generation OIS offering to LANTIS, the OIS currently sold by Siemens. Siemens LANTIS customers will have the option of upgrading to MOSAIQ or continuing to utilize their LANTIS systems. Siemens will extend service support and application training for its customers to include MOSAIQ.
MOSAIQ is an image-enabled electronic medical record for oncology that allows documentation of patient data, from diagnosis to therapy. Clinical images, lab results, and external documents can also be integrated. Support for additional business functions such as scheduling, invoicing, management reporting and analysis, among others, can also be implemented. "We have maintained a very successful partnership with IMPAC since 1992 in the area of oncology information systems. In addition to cooperating on the development of interfaces for our systems for photon and electron radiation therapy, we are now working together in particle therapy. We are confident we will be able to offer our customers sustainable oncology systems which help them to optimize workflows and master the daily challenges of the hospital routine," said Holger Schmidt, CEO Oncology Care Systems, Siemens Healthcare.
"We are pleased to partner with Siemens and look forward to continuing a long and mutually beneficial relationship. We are certain MOSAIQ will assist clinicians to efficiently manage even the most demanding workflows in oncology enabling our customers to deliver the best possible patient care," said Jay Hoey, IMPAC President and CEO.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
