IDENTIFY™  Guidance System: The Next Standard of Care

How Does IDENTIFY work?

  • Patient Identification
  • Accessory Navigation
  • Surface Guided Positioning & Monitoring
  • DIBH

How do you avoid errors?

As soon as patients enter your clinic, they are positively identified, with details of their treatment at your fingertips.  In the treatment room, IDENTIFY helps verify the right technology and the right patient set-up. IDENTIFY’s intuitive interface guides you through the patient set-up, directing the positioning of the patient and accessories through visual assistance. This not only empowers confident set-up, but it also can aid in reducing the time needed to do so. IDENTIFY is designed for experienced staff, rotating staff in larger clinics and personnel-in-training.
