Date:5/8/2009

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Impac Software, part of the Elekta Group, has been selected to present at the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Lab during the 2009 American Society of Clinical Oncology's (ASCO) Annual Meeting, May 29 - June 2, at the Orange County Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida. Chosen according to criteria developed by ASCOs EHR Workgroup, 2009 is the third consecutive year Impac Software has been chosen.

A hands-on opportunity for oncologists, administrators, nurses and other members of the oncology care team to test and experiment with various EHR products, Impac Software will demonstrate its oncology EHR, MOSAIQ(R), and how its implementation can help provide better overall communication, process efficiency and more efficient patient care.

One of multiple vendors chosen, Impac Software will showcase MOSAIQ's capacity to:

  • Select qualified patients that meet the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI(R)) case selection method,
  • Apply chemotherapy order safety principles based on a patient case scenario, and
  • Generate an ASCO treatment plan and summary report.

"We are pleased to again be selected to show our oncology specific functionality to this year's ASCO EHR lab attendees," says Dave Eggert, Medical Oncology Business Marketing Manager for Impac Software. "With all of the buzz surrounding EMR implementation as part of the stimulus package, it's even more important to make an informed decision about an EMR choice."

The EHR Lab will be located on the exhibit hall floor within the Orange County Convention Center during the following hours:

  • Saturday, May 30, 2009, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, May 31, 2009, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Monday, June 1, 2009, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
