The Swiss Medical Network, one of Switzerland’s two largest private clinic groups, has signed a multi-system, multi-clinic agreement to purchase Accuray Incorporated’s radiation therapy delivery systems as well as RaySearch’s treatment planning system (TPS) and oncology information system (OIS). This is the first multi-system agreement by a hospital for the purchase of both the Accuray and RaySearch products. The purchase includes the Accuray Radixact® and CyberKnife® M6™ Systems, as well as the RaySearch RayStation® TPS and RayCare® OIS. Together, these complementary systems will help enable the Swiss Medical Network team to provide optimal treatments for patients who may benefit from highly precise radiation therapy. The first patient treatments using the combination of the Radixact System and RayStation by the Swiss Medical Network are anticipated to take place in 2020.
The Swiss Medical Network (a fully-owned subsidiary of AEVIS VICTORIA SA), Accuray and RaySearch will also collaborate on a new training facility, as part of their continuing commitment to improving cancer care and patients’ quality of life. Healthcare professionals from around the world will have the opportunity to learn from peers and receive education on the Radixact and CyberKnife M6 Systems, as well as RayStation TPS and RayCare OIS. The state-of-the-art training facility, unique in Europe, will enable participating companies to further develop the late stages of their research programs through direct contact with doctors and patients of the Genolier Clinic, the flagship clinic of the Swiss Medical Network, located in Genolier, Switzerland. The training facility will be built adjacent to the Genolier Clinic, on the Swiss Medical Technopark campus.
