Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company, announced today that cancer patients in Australia will be the first in the world to benefit from streamlined, coordinated cancer care facilitated by an upcoming release of the ARIA® oncology information system (OIS) with new multi-disciplinary functionality. Australia’s Icon Group will become the first in the world to deploy this new system, which is scheduled for release in Australia and other global sites in early 2022.
Icon plans to go live with its first location in 2022. After a successful deployment, the new ARIA system will serve as Icon’s next-generation platform for enhancing clinical operations, and further deployments at other Icon sites will commence. The longer-term plan is to install this integrated solution across Icon’s global footprint of 44 locations over several years.
Icon will also be the first in the Australian and Asia/Pacific regions to deploy Varian’s Noona® electronic patient-reported outcomes (ePRO) solution, a digital application that enables real-time patient engagement and seamlessly integrates with the new ARIA release.
Mark Middleton, CEO, Icon Group said: “Icon is delighted to once again be at the forefront of technology evolution alongside Varian. As a global provider of comprehensive cancer care, having systems that address the breadth of our operations is vital to seamless patient care.”
