Times have drastically changed. Where our ancestors wouldn’t mind going the extra mile to get something, the current generation has no interest whatsoever in the hustle. The approach of today can be found in all the straightforward methodologies we have created for ourselves to achieve a variety of things. Every day we are striving to make our lives simpler, yet at the same time, more sophisticated than ever before. The dedication towards this particular cause is real and it’s reshuffling the way world works, taking us further away from our history, but doing it to construct a better life for us.
One of the biggest factors that have been on the frontline of this revolution is technology. If there is something that fits best with our bid to achieve the desired simplicity, it’s technology. That’s literally why it was brought into the fold, and that’s precisely what it does for a living. It cannot be said that this man-made product is completely flawless, but the amount of benefit it has delivered to the masses is hard to match, and the refined state of medical sphere will happily confirm that statement.
The impact of technology in and around the medical stratosphere has been big enough to not only save a billion lives but also alter the way you look at this field forever. Any other sector might want to stitch up an argument against technology, but for healthcare, it has been nothing short of a blessing. The improvement has been substantial and the sector now has another feather in its cap with one of its biggest tools set to become even better.
For years, radiation therapy for cancer has suffered because data inaccuracy. Ramon Alfredo Siochi, along with his task group, set out to change that. While improvisations to radiation therapy’s structure over the years have allowed it to accommodate more patients with cancer at different stages, the increased inflow of patients has also bolstered up the amount of data floating around. This data goes through numerous transfers from system to system, and during this procedure, chances of a human error leading to alterations in data’s integrity become greater. This can obviously have serious health implications.
The group report put-together by task group for Quality Assurance on External Beam Treatment Data Transfer outlines some specific guidelines through which professionals can perform data transfer without harming its accuracy.
