ProKnow: The power of data to enhance patient care

Every day, huge amounts of data are created in radiotherapy clinics across the globe. A wealth of insight is contained within these data, but without simple, intuitive solutions, it remains locked away from the experts who need it the most.

On July 2nd, 2020, we hosted a technology spotlight where we featured ProKnow. This unique solution has been designed to address the challenge of unlocking your data and making it accessible. By centralizing all your data in a secure web-based repository, it enables you to connect your clinical teams from anywhere, at any time. It also opens the door to new discoveries, with real-time analytics that enable you to effortlessly identify trends and outliers, standardize treatment and enhance patient care.
