Elekta Healthcare Analytics to be introduced at HIMSS15

At the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society's 2015 conference (HIMSS15), Elekta will introduce Elekta Healthcare Analytics, a solution for accelerating data analysis to improve clinical, operational and financial decision making. HIMSS15 convenes April 12-15, in Chicago.

Elekta Healthcare Analytics is a Knowledge Management solution by Elekta that will enable physicians to harness the vast amount of data available in the health care enterprise. It comprises analytical tools that uncover new ways to:

  • Reduce costs, eliminate inefficiencies and identify potential quality improvements
  • Manage and measure resource utilization
  • Standardize care across small and large networks, monitoring care patterns and operational trends
  • Improve patient satisfaction, tailor patient outreach and manage clinical trial groups and other patient populations

"Oncology centers generate enormous volumes of data. By achieving a better understanding of these data, providers will be better equipped to manage increasing numbers of patients," says Todd Powell, Executive Vice President, Elekta Software. "And this information will be crucial to tailoring care to each patient, fine-tuning therapy strategies and practice quality, and improving performance. The real-time dashboards in Healthcare Analytics will help providers to make confident, evidence-based decisions, using the insights these data offer."

Among the first users of Elekta Healthcare Analytics and a long term user of MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System, is The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, which is employing the solution in its radiation oncology practices.

"MD Anderson annually treats thousands of patients with radiation therapy, so it's important that we use a system that enables us to not only capture these critical patient data, but also to leverage that information to implement ongoing improvements in patient care," says Robin Famiglietti, MBA, PhD, FACHE, Executive Director and Division Administrator, Radiation Oncology. "Elekta Healthcare Analytics provides us with a tool to qualify and quantify how we're doing, and how we can better serve our patients' needs moving forward."

The Elekta Knowledge Management suite of cloud-based clinical and business applications supports data management, reporting, visualization and analysis. These solutions are key in enabling Elekta to deliver on its vision of Information-guided care™.

Breakfast seminar during HIMSS15
On April 15 from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m., Elekta will host a breakfast seminar, "Using Oncology Data to Better Manage Population Health". The program will be held at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in the Regency Ballroom C&D. Registration is available at: http://comms.elekta.com/HIMSS15.html.

In the session, Anna Theriault, Global Director Data and Analytics will present how Elekta is enabling health care leaders to improve cancer center's operational efficiency and patients' cancer care journeys using advanced analytics. Visual, real-time dashboards provide users with the information they need to make data-driven decisions. MOSAIQ® Oncology Information System, combined with robust Healthcare Analytics, can help providers decrease variability, reduce costs and improve patient satisfaction - all while increasing interoperability within the enterprise IT solution.
