Unfors RaySafe & EPAM: Developing Apps That Save Lives
Despite X-ray technology's critical role in saving lives, unnecessary radiation exposure is capable of doing just the opposite. In an effort to combat this problem, radiation dose-management programs exist to track, report and monitor patients’ exposure; however, the market offerings have been limited to fragmented, manual solutions.
That’s where EPAM came in to help Unfors RaySafe create a complete X-ray radiation solution. Adopting an iterative approach based on the software development methods of Agile, Scrum, and extreme programming (XP) practices, EPAM delivered the first cloudbased dose management software of its kind, RaySafe S1.
RaySafe S1 is the first-ever comprehensive cloud-based software developed to minimize patient X-ray radiation exposure. The solution increases image quality and reduces X-ray dosage and waste, while also improving productivity and results tracking. In October 2013, a year after its public launch, RaySafe S1 was recognized with the Red Dot Award for Communication Design, in the Interface Design category.
