EUROPE: Varian Medical Systems Unveils New Medical Oncology Prescribing System at ESMO

Varian Medical Systems, the world leader in integrated cancer therapysolutions, will be demonstrating its new medical oncology prescribing system
at the annual congress of the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) in
Vienna, Austria, from October 29th to November 1st, 2004.
VARiS MedOncology is a software system for managing medical oncology that
includes clinical information tools, patient safety tools, chemotherapy
prescribing, pharmacy dispensing, electronic charge capture and tools to
support clinical trial participation and the collection and analysis of
research data.
“Varian can now offer cancer treatment facilities software that combines
and manages information including appointments, treatment regimens and
diagnostic suggestions for both radiation therapy and chemotherapy within a
single electronic medical record for each patient,” says Walter Frei,
Varian’s VP Sales & Marketing Operations Europe.
Utilising software developed by the former OpTx Corporation, recently acquired
by Varian, VARiS MedOncology integrates with Varian’s VARiS Vision data
management system to provide a comprehensive solution for clinical
oncologists.
One of the first hospitals in Europe to implement VARiS MedOncology is Norfolk
and Norwich University Hospital in the UK, where lead oncology clinician
Professor Ann Barrett and her team are working towards an entirely paperless
environment for both radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
