Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has signed a 10-year QA Pilot contract for their entire department including six Linacs, Brachytherapy, Superficial, CT, and Contact rooms. QA Pilot is a cloud-based, centralised software solution that makes managing QA easier and optimises workflow for faster organisation of data.
“For us, the big driver to getting a QA system was the jump from paper records to digital, so we can record our QA, but also use trending and reports to try to forecast machine downtime,” said Jonathan Littler, Principal Dosimetry Physicist at Nottingham University City Hospital. “It also means we can demonstrate our QA compliance under the new IRMER regulations, without trawling through log books. Having the system entirely cloud-based means no installing and maintaining software, dealing with licenses, etc. It’s been an easy transition so far.”
Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has a national and international reputation for their specialist cancer services. They are at the forefront of many research programs. In addition to being a QA Pilot user, they also use Standard Imaging’s IMSure software and QA BeamChecker Plus.
“OIS is excited to partner with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust in providing the latest secure cloud-based QA management solution,” says Mike Holroyd, Sales Manager at OIS. “QA Pilot is a game changer that will enable the team to streamline departmental QA, communications, auditing, and machine trending, from any location. Following a trial of QA Pilot, we are very pleased that it was selected as the QA management system of choice for the department, and we look forward to developing our continued partnership into the future.”
