Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Milan, Italy – Royal Philips (NYSE: PHG, AEX: PHIA), a global leader in health technology, today announced IntelliSpace Radiation Oncology , an intelligent patient management solution to manage complexity, improve efficiency and enable operational excellence in radiotherapy departments. IntelliSpace Radiation Oncology provides a harmonized way of working, integrating applications and automating workflow to help reduce the amount of time it takes from receiving a patient referral to the start of their treatment. The solution is being unveiled at the European Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ESTRO) 38th Annual Meeting in Milan, Italy on Friday April 26, 2019.
Radiotherapy is an important and cost-effective part of cancer treatment and control. More than half of all cancer types can be treated with radiotherapy , often in combination with other types of therapy such as surgery and chemotherapy. However, radiotherapy is often perceived as a complex treatment option due to the number of clinical specialists and advanced technologies required to deliver effective care. IntelliSpace Radiation Oncology is designed to manage this complexity by providing an integrated platform that connects all the steps from the patient’s referral to the start of their treatment.
