Welcome to QATrack+’s documentation!¶
QATrack+ is a fully configurable, free, and open source (MIT License) web application for managing QA data for radiation therapy and medical imaging equipment. QATrack+ is now used in many hospitals and clinics around the world! Visit the QATrack+ homepage at http://qatrackplus.com
QATrack+ is deployable on most operating system/server/database platform combinations. It was developed in the popular Python programming language using the Django web framework so that QC data may be entered, reviewed, and analyzed using a web browser.
The main features include:
- Ability to define QC tests via an user-friendly interface. Configuration settings are available for data type (Boolean, float, computational result, or multiple choice selection), test frequency (due/past due dates), reference values, and tolerance and action levels. Test configurations can be grouped and assigned to multiple units/devices to reduce configuration workload, and to simplify the configuration maintenance.
- Several options for trending numerical data via control charts and other tools. Data can be filtered by unit, date, or frequency, and can also be exported for external analysis.
- Support for multiple, unique user groups (e.g. administrators, physicists, assistants, therapists, etc) with user & group-specific privileges and test lists, as well as a configurable user authentication system.
- Easily integrate test procedures into data entry forms via embedded html or links to external documentation.
- Save incomplete work and complete it a later date.
- Configure a review/approval process with additional options for classifying data. The software also allows reviewers to easily differentiate between measurements performed as part of investigative work, or as part of routine QC testing.
- Integrated Service Log for tracking service events and machine downtime
- Parts tracker for tracking spare parts on hand, part costs and vendors
- Optional and configurable email notifications.
- The flexibility to host on an intranet or www, requiring minimal resources from IT departments. Can optionally be managed within a physics department if permitted by local institution policies.
