Qumulate™ QA: A Cloud-Based Quality Assurance Analysis Tool

Qumulate™ QA, a new cloud-based quality assurance data management and analysis tool, is designed to allow medical physicists to maintain linear accelerator (linac) QA data through a simple and intuitive web interface. Using this web-based tool, users will be able to create QA templates reflecting their own clinic-specific testing procedures, identify trends in a linac’s historical test performance, and see how their own machine compares to the QA performance of other linacs. All the data will be analyzed in the cloud. “Not only will Qumulate help alleviate the QA paperwork burden, it may also help standardize the QA process with the ultimate goal of delivering the highest quality of care to the patient,” says Mike Kijewski, quality analytics portfolio manager. “It’s among a spectrum of tools that Varian has been working on, designed to facilitate greater knowledge sharing among users.”
