New Radiotherapy Center in Ebersberg Partners with humediQ to Enhance Patient Safety and Efficiency
Munich, Germany, January 11, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- On December 12th, 2016, a new radiotherapy center has opened its doors in Ebersberg, Germany. The center is working closely with humediQ in offering the highest standard of patient safety during cancer treatment.
Radiotherapy center Ebersberg is a representative office of the renowned clinic in Rosenheim and brings to the doorsteps of its patients the operational expertise and therapeutic intelligence of the medical staff in the central clinic. The hospital is determined to provide patients with the most advanced radiotherapeutic equipment. Overall investment counts on 5,65 million Euros and the clinic is expected to offer high-quality treatment for more than 400 patients annually.
The hospital has partnered with humediQ to install IDENTIFY, an advanced solution designed to enhance patient safety during treatment. The technology ensures the highest precision possible through automatic patient identification, positioning, and ongoing motion monitoring.
The software automatically identifies patients and their treatment data and guides radiologists through the setup process. A unique augmented reality interface makes the set up easy, accurate and efficient. Through the system, medical personnel and now patients as well have an opportunity to monitor in real time their position on the table to ensure accuracy during every second of the treatment process. Patient engagement not only increases overall satisfaction but as well lessens the setup time and eases the workload for radiotherapists. The state-of-the-art technology of motion monitoring and respiratory gating guarantees the safest treatment for the left breast cancer patients, minimizing the exposure of the heart to the radiation waves.
Dr. Ertan Mergen, the head of the new radiotherapy center states, “I am proud that our medical center can now offer full set of innovative oncological equipment. The medical service, provided here will not only benefit our patients but also overall oncological development of the center at Ebersberg. I am convinced that the solution designed by humediQ will help us to enhance treatment quality and precision. We will be able to decrease the setup time and thus raise the efficiency of the center, potentially opening our doors to more patients in the future. I believe, success is more likely when one is well equipped.”
Christian Hieronimi, Chief Executive Officer at humediQ, says, “We are very excited about our cooperation with the clinic at Ebersberg. Our comprehensive patient positioning and monitoring solution is designed to ensure patient safety while being treated with highly accurate forms of radiation therapy. Efficiency and ease of operation of our product will have a positive effect on the workflow of our partner.”
