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.
