CHICAGO, Feb. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Brainlab, a leader in software-driven medical technology including radiosurgery treatment planning systems, and Radion, a leader in healthcare eCollaboration solutions for oncology clinics and hospitals, announced today their collaboration to provide an integrated radiation therapy patient management solution including advanced image sharing and enrichment tools.
With the Brainlab-Radion partnership, radiation therapy centers are able to more effectively manage their patient workflow and image management needs in one, integrated web-based platform. The Brainlab-Radion partnership is the first of its kind for both companies, and represents an overarching Brainlab initiative to integrate its VoyantLink image sharing solution into the radiation oncology community.
"Radion is always looking for ways to enhance our software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution to provide our customers with the best experience and results possible," said Kamal Gogineni, Radion CEO. "The partnership with Brainlab allows Radion to enhance its workflow optimization and patient care platform and remove pain points for our customers by integrating VoyantLink image sharing and enrichment."
"Brainlab is pleased to have VoyantLink integrated as part of the Radion Hub™," said Jason Chandler, vice president of sales, VoyantLink North America, at Brainlab. "VoyantLink is a perfect complement to the Radion Hub™, creating an end-to-end solution that incorporates image management, treatment planning, department workflow, live collaboration, quality assurance and treatment delivery. We look forward to our continued collaboration with Radion."
VoyantLink provides a cloud-based workspace, where users access their images in the cloud, launch and employ clinical planning tools, and push completed plans to any device or storage location. Users of VoyantLink can send, receive, share and save images, like most online or cloud-based image sharing clinical networks, but this is where the similarity ends. VoyantLink takes these capabilities a step beyond image sharing, where image sharing may be a means to streamline clinical decision-making.
The combined Brainlab-Radion service is now live at Valley Medical Oncology Centers (VMOC) in Pleasanton, California. "I rely on the Radion Hub for all of my treatment planning review. The addition of VoyantLink image management is a game-changer for us since it now allows me to review all aspects of a patient plan remotely," said Rakesh Patel, MD, radiation oncologist, VMOC.
