Medsquare’s Radiation Dose Monitor (RDM) selected as preferred DACS solution
For the third consecutive time, Resah has chosen Medsquare’s patient dose management solution as its preferred DACS solution. All Resah members, in France and in the overseas departments, can benefit from the RDM solution.
Dominique Gabriel, President of Medsquare, declares: “This is good news for all Resah members. Those who are not yet equipped with a DACS will be able to easily and quickly set up an effective dose monitoring solution, meeting the regulatory requirements of Directive 2013/59. As for those who are already equipped with the DACS RDM, they will be able to continue their deployments and subscribe to their maintenance contracts under the conditions negotiated by Resah.”
“The Resah contract is part of an approach to support healthcare professionals which has been at the heart of Medsquare’s activity since 2012,” Dominique Gabriel adds. “It gives them the means to ensure better radiation protection of the patient by collecting data and optimizing patient dose. Our entire team is delighted to continue to put its skills at the service of Resah members.”
Aranya Sivaramane, Biomedical Engineer of the Resah, states: “Medsquare’s RDM solution meets all the requirements that we expect from a DACS at the scale of a national purchasing group: a complete and intuitive interface, multi-manufacturers and multi-modalities. Thus, RDM satisfies our members’ very diverse needs perfectly.”
RDM, a response to the needs expressed by the regional hospital groups (Groupements Hospitaliers de Territoires GHT)
As a privileged partner of Regional Hospital Groups in France (GHT), Resah also relies on Medsquare’s know-how to develop multi-site projects and centralize data on a regional scale.
Saad Saad, Project Manager at Medsquare, says: “RDM is an integrated and packaged solution, which integrates naturally into the environment of every healthcare facility in France. As it can be quickly deployed in several establishments across a territory or region, it makes it possible to build a centralized and secure system for collecting and analyzing dose data, while mobilizing the resources of the support services optimally. Demand is growing in the Regional Hospital Groups in France.”
Centralized DACS is a logical evolution in dose management, in which Regional Hospital Groups in France are naturally the first to engage. Medsquare is familiar with this exercise: RDM is used as a central DACS by AP-HP and as a regional DACS in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, where it brings together data from 46 hospitals (a first in France). This is also the case outside of France, with regional installations in Austria, Spain, the United States, and several other countries.
