Clinically proven workflow tools = time and cost savings and better patient experiences through improved communication and faster planning
Developed in conjunction with a busy radiation oncology clinic, RT Workspace responds to the need for organization and improvement of the patient planning process. Workflow is improved and patient’s experience is enhanced through better communication, reduced waste and lower administrative costs.
From patient entry through plan approval to plan finalization RT Workspace guides the entire process in a way that Record and Verify Systems do not offer. With automatic notifications, each professional in the process knows when a task requires their attention increasing efficiency and productivity by reducing workflow interruptions. Gain confidence knowing that all steps are completed before a patient shows up for their first treatment.
Identify inefficiencies with workflow analysis tools
Because every step in the process is time stamped and recorded in the secure RT Workspace database workflow analysis is only a click away. Use the workflow analysis tools built into RT Workspace to determine where productivity and efficiency issues exist and see exactly where improvements to the process may have the most effect.
Physics tools at your fingertips
Increase efficiency by keeping important physics information in a single easily accessed location, the RT Workspace secure database.
- Calibration information is tracked and automatic notifications alert you when equipment is due for re-calibration
- Collect, store and analyze monthly linear accelerator QA with a TG-40 compliant module
- Collect, analyze, store and create reports on patient specific IMRT QA according to your existing physics QA protocols
Features and benefits
From any workstation access electronic whiteboards and instantly assess where a patient’s plan is in the process and who is assigned the next task(s).
- When a process is finished the professional assigned the next task is notified immediately
- The Dosimetry-Summary board provides an instant snapshot of where a patient is in the planning process
- Specialized boards for LDR Brachytherapy and Radiosurgery provide better workflow control of your planning processes
