Accuray supports its customers during COVID19
During these difficult and trying times of the COVID19 pandemic, Accuray has come together with its customers to provide innovative ways to assist them to be able to continue to care for their cancer patients.
As one initiative, Accuray’s Medical Affairs team is ready to provide customers with information regarding peer reviewed, published clinical literature. While its customers may be experiencing staff disruptions and shortages in qualified clinical staff, Accuray provides remote product training and clinical application’s support, a benefit of Accuray’s service agreements, to quickly train and educate new users.
In the US, Accuray also offers a remote physician-to-physician program which includes peer dialogue with knowledgeable clinicians who share experiences with Accuray systems’ hypofractionated and ultra-hypofractionated treatment capabilities, as well as dose objectives and constraints, treatment margins, and any general “tips and tricks” that experienced users can provide.
Additionally, also available, is a recorded presentation hosted by a panel of physicians that provides an overview of the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s recommendation for treating cancer patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. This panel of physicians also share measures taken by their departments to minimize infection risks and prioritize patient care. You can access this resource by clicking HERE [youtube.com]
