National database makes Sweden optimal for evaluating radiotherapy

The Swedish Testbed is designing a national system for automatic reporting of radiotherapy data to national quality registers. This includes creating the technical conditions for connecting various local and national database systems.

The system includes a local storage at each hospital, known as MIQA, which can also be used as a research database.

The goal is to have access to uniform and thereby comparable national radiotherapy data. It will also be significantly easier to report and evaluate larger quantities of data.

With the new unified national database solution, Sweden is an optimal country for evaluating new radiation therapy technologies.

So far, MIQA has been installed at the University Hospital of Umeå, Uppsala University Hospital and Skåne University Hospital. The next installation will be done at Örebro University Hospital.
