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.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.
The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...
