Varians Atria networks six U.K. hospitals
Six hospitals in northern England are implementing Varian Medical Systems’ Aria for medical oncology system to enable them to function as one clinical network.

The network will include oncology centers at the Royal Preston Hospital, Royal Blackburn Hospital, Burnley General Hospital, Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Royal Lancs Infirmary and Furness General Hospital.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based Varian said the facilities will effectively have a single integrated computer network for chemotherapy prescribing and patient records through utilization of its Aria system.
