ProCure Selects IMPAC as Provider of Oncology Information Systems
Date:1/24/2008

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- ProCure Treatment Centers, Inc (ProCure) has announced that it has selected IMPAC Medical Systems, an Elekta Company, as a preferred provider of oncology information systems (OIS) for its IBA-equipped proton beam therapy centers. ProCure designs, builds and operates proton beam therapy centers in partnership with local radiation oncologists and community hospitals.

A key component of developing proton beam therapy centers is the staffing and training of all the center's employees. ProCure will have IMPAC's MOSAIQ(TM) OIS software installed at its training and development center (TDC) in Bloomington, IN. IMPAC will provide training at the TDC for the staff of ProCure's IBA-equipped proton therapy centers.

"ProCure's training and development center will ensure that their staff is highly trained, efficient and ready to provide the highest level of care when a proton center opens," said Stewart Pegrum, Global Business Manager Particle Therapy, at Elekta. "The TDC is the first facility dedicated to training the highly-skilled professionals needed for proton therapy. The availability of the MOSAIQ OIS system at the TDC will enable ProCure to both train personnel, and to optimize the therapy workflow of the ProCure treatment centers."

Construction is underway on the Oklahoma ProCure Treatment Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and the facility is expected to begin treating patients in the summer of 2009. The facility will utilize MOSAIQ OIS software.

ProCure currently has a second facility in development in Chicago's western suburbs; a certificate of need application is before the Illinois Healthcare Facilities Planning Board. If regulatory approvals are received by the spring of 2008, it is expected patients will be able to receive treatment by mid-2010.

MOSAIQ currently is deployed at the Francis Burr Proton Therapy Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, MD Anderson, University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute and the Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute. "The IMPAC team brings significant expertise in proton therapy and radiation oncology with their software solution and more importantly the associated service," said Niek Schreuder, Senior Vice President of Technology at ProCure Treatment Centers. "Elekta and IMPAC share the ProCure vision of making the OIS the central hub for all the therapy workflow, and together we can make this happen. This will provide significant benefits to our physician partners, hospital partners and their patients," added Schreuder.
