"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."
