Elekta to Demonstrate Latest MOSAIQ OIS Innovations for Oncology Practices at 2012 ASCO Annual Meeting
Date:5/30/2012

ATLANTA, May 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced automation, sophisticated eScribe merge field capabilities and an American Cancer Society clinician portal are among the new innovations showcased in Elekta's MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System (OIS)  at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Annual Meeting, June 1-4, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

In addition, for the sixth consecutive year, Elekta (booth #4019) has been selected to demonstrate at ASCO's EHR Vendor Lab. The 2012 Lab will be a live, in-person resource held June 2-4 in the Oncology Professionals Hall, booth #5004.

MOSAIQ is designed to manage the complete spectrum of oncology treatments in a single patient record. For chemotherapy, MOSAIQ provides a clear, flexible way to chart the patient's treatment across the medical assessment and chemotherapy administration process.

New in MOSAIQ:

  • Clinicians can bring advanced automation to the oncology practice through MOSAIQ IQ Scripts, a tool that launches a customizable "script" of activities that connect to each other. For example, IQ Scripts might be used to generate a warning message or launch an assessment based on order approval or Quality Checklist (QCL) completion. The results are exceptional control, efficiency and customization across the entire oncology workflow.
  • Enhancements to eScribe Merge Fields are available, allowing the user to put clinical, insurance, and scheduling information about the patient in eScribe documents, including the ability to add new fields instantly from a new drag-and-drop interface.
  • Oncologists will be able to launch the American Cancer Society's Clinician Portal directly from MOSAIQ, allowing instant access to their library of patient resources.
  • Full featured and integrated Survivorship module, allowing physicians to create a patient-specific treatment summary with recommendations for treatment follow up, including support resources in the community, treatment summary and recommendations for follow-up care.

MOSAIQ is the first comprehensive, oncology-specific EMR certified for meaningful use under the federal government's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The latest version of MOSAIQ is optimized for practices planning to demonstrate meaningful use, which qualifies them to receive payments from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) under Medicare rules.

MOSAIQ ranked first in the 2011 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services report. KLAS's data also are supported by the U.S. News & World Report 2011-12 best hospital rankings, which indicate that 46 out of the 50 top-ranked cancer hospitals are users of Elekta's oncology software.

"Yearly, ASCO always attracts the top minds in oncology, and we're honored to support this event," says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President, Elekta Software. "We anticipate that visitors to the Elekta exhibit will see once again why MOSAIQ is the preferred OIS for thousands of oncology practices."
