ATLANTA and CHICAGO, May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For the fifth straight year, Elekta has been selected to demonstrate at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Electronic Health Records (EHR) Lab, June 4-6, at McCormick Place in Chicago.

MOSAIQ is fully prepared for centers planning attestation in 2011 or 2012.

Elekta is among 12 providers chosen to present at the EHR Lab, a forum for ASCO members to discover the latest EHR technology. With nearly 30,000 members, ASCO is the world's leading professional organization representing physicians who care for people with cancer.

Elekta's integrated Oncology Information Systems features a complete, patient-centric chart optimized for medical oncology, radiation oncology and comprehensive practices.

"Elekta has repeatedly demonstrated and followed through on its commitment to deliver a comprehensive and robust oncology-specific EHR and to support emerging healthcare trends," says Grant Spencer, Vice President, Product Creation, Oncology Information Systems. "For example, Elekta was a leader in support of government initiatives by offering the first comprehensive EHR to receive complete ONC-ATCB certification, and we were ready to implement ICD-10 diagnosis codes years ahead of the deadlines. Elekta is committed to the delegates of ASCO, our customers and clinical partners by providing efficient, streamlined workflows that allow them to focus on patient care."
