New radiotherapy center in Ebersberg partners with humediQ to enhance patient safety and efficiency

On 12th December 2016, a new radiotherapy center has opened its doors in Ebersberg, Germany. The center is working closely with humediQ in offering the highest standard of patient safety during cancer treatment.

Radiotherapy center Ebersberg is a representative office of the renowned clinic in Rosenheim and brings to the doorsteps of its patients the operational expertise and therapeutic intelligence of the medical staff in the central clinic. The hospital is determined to provide patients with the most advanced radiotherapeutic equipment. Overall investment counts on 5,65 million Euros and the clinic is expected to offer high-quality treatment for more than 400 patients annually.

The hospital has partnered with humediQ to install IDENTIFY, an advanced solution designed to enhance patient safety during treatment. The technology ensures the highest precision possible through automatic patient identification, positioning, and ongoing motion monitoring.

The software automatically identifies patients and their treatment data and guides radiologists through the setup process. A unique augmented reality interface makes the set up easy, accurate and efficient. Through the system, medical personnel and now patients as well have an opportunity to monitor in real time their position on the table to ensure accuracy during every second of the treatment process. Patient engagement not only increases overall satisfaction but as well lessens the setup time and eases the workload for radiotherapists. The state-of-the-art technology of motion monitoring and respiratory gating guarantees the safest treatment for the left breast cancer patients, minimizing the exposure of the heart to the radiation waves.

Dr. Ertan Mergen, the head of the new radiotherapy center states: “I am proud that our medical center can now offer full set of innovative oncological equipment. The medical service, provided here will not only benefit our patients but also overall oncological development of the center at Ebersberg. I am convinced that the solution designed by humediQ will help us to enhance treatment quality and precision. We will be able to decrease the setup time and thus raise the efficiency of the center, potentially opening our doors to more patients in the future. I believe, success is more likely when one is well equipped.”

Christian Hieronimi, Chief Executive Officer at humediQ, says: “We are very excited about our cooperation with the clinic at Ebersberg. Our comprehensive patient positioning and monitoring solution is designed to ensure patient safety while being treated with highly accurate forms of radiation therapy. Efficiency and ease of operation of our product will have a positive effect on the workflow of our partner.”

Proton Partners International and humediQ GmbH partner to deliver safe radiotherapy

October 03, 2016 - Proton Partners International has partnered with humediQ GmbH to achieve its goal of creating centres of excellence for advanced cancer treatment in the UK and beyond by providing the latest, most advanced technology in radiotherapy patient monitoring.

Proton Partners International will operate three oncology centers in the UK over the next two years. In addition to proton therapy, the centers will offer radiotherapy and chemotherapy to private patients under medical insurance, self-pay patients and NHS patients.

Proton Partners will acquire humediQ’s IDENTIFY SURFACE patient positioning and motion management system, the most modern solution on the market, for both its conventional and proton therapy systems.

Mike Moran, Chief Executive Officer of Proton Partners International, says: “We are committed to providing the highest quality of treatment at our centers and as such we are working with world class-leading partners. We are pleased to be working in partnership with humediQ, which is renowned for the innovation and excellence of its products and services.”

Christian Hieronimi, Chief Executive Officer at humediQ GmbH, says: “We are very pleased to support Proton Partners in transforming care in the UK and beyond. humediQ’s comprehensive patient positioning and monitoring solutions are designed to ensure patient safety while being treated with highly accurate forms of radiation therapy. Its ease of use will play a vital role in helping Proton Partners to achieve their goal of treating more than 2,000 patients annually.”

According to Cancer Research UK, the number of new cancer cases each year in the UK is expected to reach around 432,000 by 2030, and half of these patients should receive radiotherapy at some point in their treatment. Patient safety has to be at the forefront of any radiotherapy service and with the projected increase in patient volumes, combined with the evolution of more precise hypo-fractionated treatments, accurate patient positioning and motion management will be crucial to take full advantage of these new treatment regimes.

Stewart Pegrum, humediQ’s Vice President EMEA, adds: “Proton Partners and humediQ are committed to bring the best, safest and most innovative radiotherapy solutions to cancer patients in the UK and beyond.”

Final resolution of dispute over agreement for exclusive supply of Identify™ between humediQ and companies of the Elekta Group

Mai 25, 2016 - In October 2014 humediQ GmbH initiated legal proceedings with the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) against two companies in the Elekta group, namely Medical Intelligence Medizintechnik GmbH (MI) and Elekta Ltd. The dispute relates to an agreement from October 2011 for exclusive supply of Identify™ during an initial time of three years under the Elekta label. Identify is a patient identification and setup verification product. HumediQ asked to take delivery and payment in respect of an outstanding volume of Identify Products. MI and Elekta denied the claim and terminated the PLDA on the grounds of alleged deceit or material breach of a warranty on the part of humediQ and counterclaimed damages from humediQ.

On May 23, 2016, in a final decision, the LCIA awarded substantial damages and interest to humediQ GmbH. In addition, it dismissed all counterclaims made by the two Elekta group companies brought against humediQ GmbH.

humediQ GmbH was represented by Preu Bohlig & Partner (Sebastian Frhr. von Bechtolsheim and Dr. Alexander Harguth) in Munich, and Klaus Reichert SC and Kyle Lawson of Brick Court Chambers in London. The Elekta companies were represented by Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (Boris Kasolowsky, Wolrad Prinz zu Waldeck, Robert Whitener, Alexander Monro, and Moritz Schmitt).

IDENTIFY™ salutes CAREONLINE™

At the 2016 European Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ESTRO) exhibition, 29 April to 3 May at the Lingotto Fiere, humediQ will demonstrate advanced solutions that provide clinicians with the tools to save and improve lives of cancer patients worldwide.

The comprehensive and updated system IDENTIFY which is made to increase staff confidence in the integrity of patient identification and set up will be accompanied by our latest innovation CAREONLINE.

IDENTIFY takes advantage of precision radiofrequency identification technology and will ensure the right patient is being treated at the right location, with the correct set up and equipment.
Identify enables patient queuing, selection of patient details and monitoring of set-up position, optimizing workflow and enhancing safety. Identify will be a scalable solution – from the treatment room to the entire department – allowing centers to grow as needs change.

CAREONLINE is a therapy-complementary care system that enables regular data acquisition independent from the location of a patient. Attending physicians, who use the system, request their patients to answer regular questions, perform simple measurements by themselves and take medication regularly. The patient receives this elongated therapy plan on his smartphone and is reminded in time to complete the given tasks. Results plus task compliance are transferred back and visualized to the physician to support treatment adaptation during control appointments.

The addition of Careonline to our portfolio will address the desire of our customers to confidently provide better care for their out-patient treatments by keeping an eye on the quality of life of their patients and potential complications during therapy or follow-up. Providing care does not stop at the hospital door anymore.
