Round-table: Harmonisation within radiotherapy environments

Welcome at the ICT Healthcare round-table about harmonisation within radiotherapy environments. During this afternoon, we share knowledge and have an informed discussion about how different aspects within radiotherapy can be better coordinated. We do this from different perspectives from technology, clinic and research.

Speakers

Challenges of the Data & Workflow management in the radiation oncology
Harold Beunk – Sr. Technical Consultant Healthcare interoperability
A novel seamlessly integrated Radiation Oncology workflow experience, facilitating state-of-the-art adaptive radiation oncology and personalized medicine research requires adoption of new IHE-RO profiles and DICOM 2nd generation objects. How do we prepare for the future from an integration point of view?

Improving patient treatment with online adaptive MR-guided radiotherapy
Dr. Miguel Palacios – Medical Physicist Amsterdam UMC
Integration of magnetic resonance in the radiotherapy workflow has allowed to improve patient care by adapting the treatment plan each day and reducing the volume of irradiated healthy tissue. In this presentation an overview of the implementation path and experience over the last three years with this new modality will be presented.

Acceptance of prediction models is a choice!
Dr. Johan van Soest – Postdoctoral researcher Maastricht University
Prediction models are becoming ubiquitous in radiotherapy. Not only for outcome prediction, but especially for operational excellence. Why does this happen, and does it matter?

Congress for Value-Based Care and Quality Registration

Healthcare providers can significantly increase the value of their patient care with good quality registrations. But how do you set it up so that the healthcare really improves? At the congress ‘Value-driven quality assurance’ you will gain insight into the development, the visions and the latest initiatives of quality registrations in Belgium and the Netherlands.

In addition to a short presentation on LogicNets, ICT Group, in collaboration with the HIV Monitoring Foundation, is giving a demonstration of DataCapTree, a solution built on the LogicNets Medical Diagnostic Framework.

Stichting HIV Monitoring (SHM, the Dutch HIV monitoring foundation) implemented a new smart data entry and storage system. SHM developed DataCapTree with the LogicNets Medical Decision Framework, ICT Group’s decision support solution.

DataCapTree collects pseudonymized medical data of people with HIV, which are used by the foundation to monitor the course of the disease and the efficacy of the HIV treatment. SHM’s annual ‘Monitoring Report’ may prompt NVHB (Nederlandse Vereniging van hiv Behandelaren [Dutch Association of HIV-treating physicians]) to change their treatment guidelines. SHM Deputy Director Sima Zaheri is pleased with the new system: ‘The new system facilitates improved data quality, which, in turn, helps us improve our monitoring performance. We intend to use this tool to further strengthen our commitment to better care for people with HIV.’

Market introduction at ESTRO 37: CorTx-RT, ICT’s radiotherapy solution

During ESTRO 37, ICT Group will introduce  a novel radiotherapy solution, CorTx-RT. The event will take place 20-24 April 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.

CorTx-RT: Simplifies Radiation Oncology Complexity
CorTx-RT is a radiotherapy data- and workflow management solution, taking care of all the data hand-overs during the course of treatment. With the goal to improve patient safety, treatment quality and gain drastic reductions in treatment delays, while increasing workflow efficiency.

Are you curious about our radiotherapy solution? Watch the animation below!

Product information will be available soon.

Radiation Oncology is an innovative discipline which is rapidly evolving, we remain conscious of the fact that the strive for better and more accurate and precise treatments should go hand in hand with the effort to provide optimal care to radiation and oncology patients in general.

Besides the introduction of CorTx-RT, ICT Group will also inform you about the project in cooperation with Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH):  ‘A “big-data” platform, managing the clinical data & workflows and facilitating clinical research’ and a project in cooperation with Smart Scientific Solutions BV regarding a small animal application: ‘Optimizing preclinical research by using a data management platform’.

About ESTRO
ESTRO is a society focusing on interdisciplinarity and multidisciplinarity, giving radiation oncologists, medical physicists, radiobiologists, brachytherapists and radiation therapists (RTTs) the opportunity to engage with other oncology organizations with the collective aim of improving cancer treatment. This conference will convey the theme ‘Innovation for Value and Access’.

Innovations in radiation oncology do not only have a positive impact on the value of our treatments, but we can also use the technological (e.g. automation, efficiency) and radiobiological (e.g. hypofractionation) advances to serve an ever growing subset of patients.
