MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MedLever, Inc. today announced the launch of a comprehensive agreement with the Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital (HKSH) to use the MedLever Platform to enable interoperability and streamline workflow for proton therapy delivery. MedLever and HKSH are working together to develop the information backbone to support the innovative MR-guided proton therapy solution being developed at HKSH. Additionally, MedLever will support the information management needs for conventional patient setup incorporating MR imaging. The solution will be first deployed in the conventional therapy department to enable simplified workflow, effective connectivity and data exchange among multiple systems.

The novel setup room methodology developed by the HKSH and supported by the MedLever Platform improves efficiency and patient throughput. By joining forces, MedLever and the HKSH are building an infrastructure solution to enable interoperability among disparate imaging and therapy modalities including MR, conventional X-ray, CT, and photon/proton treatment delivery systems from several vendors.

Image-guided patient positioning in the setup room using the MedLever Platform improves patient throughput significantly and permits the flexible use of different imaging modalities including MRI. Dr. Ben Yu, Head, Medical Physics and Research at HKSH stated that “one of the keys of success is the capability to transfer data between setup room, gantry room, and the treatment planning system. We are delighted to have MedLever working with us on this project and making MR-guided radiation therapy using the setup room possible.”

“We wanted a vendor that had experience with MOSAIQ® and demonstrated development flexibility to adapt to our changing needs here at HKSH,” added Dr. George Chiu, Head, Radiotherapy. “MedLever has demonstrated the willingness to listen and the flexibility to change throughout our pilot project. We look forward to further collaborations between MedLever and HKSH in enhancing our patient care.”

Founded in 2011, MedLever creates applications that simplify the work day for the radiation oncology team. “We are collaborating with HKSH in both the research and development of additional MedLever apps and interfaces,” says Kai Yan Wong, MedLever General Manager, APAC Region. “We are honored to have the opportunity to develop the interoperability among multiple solutions both in place and to be installed at the HKSH.”
