Remote support allows surgical teams to collaborate with reps and peers from anywhere in the world alongside tailored digital procedural playbooks for every role on the team
CHICAGO, Sept. 15, 2020 – ExplORer Surgical, the only comprehensive intraoperative case support and workflow platform, today announces the launch of remote features that connect reps and peers with the surgical team for real-time guidance. The HIPAA compliant, two-way video for case support and remote proctoring add to the platform’s existing and unique procedural workflow features that create the first digitized playbook for everyone in surgery. The platform allows for telestration and gathers intraoperative performance data to allow teams to increase efficiency and proficiency.
Remote case support is increasingly critical due to COVID-19, where strict regulations limit travel and the number of personnel in the operating room. Medical device experts need a reliable way to communicate, and show how to safely and efficiently perform procedures. Alongside the video feed, the entire surgical team receives step-by-step, role-specific digital procedure workflows and tailored instructions, allowing them to be better prepared in the moment and ensuring better patient outcomes. Informed by data, surgical teams can identify clear opportunities for improvement, improving outcomes that ultimately, drive adoption and revenue gains for the device company over time.
“Travel restrictions and social distancing are impacting every area of life, and the OR is no exception,” said Jennifer Fried, CEO of ExplORer Surgical. “The medical device rep’s ability to guide the team through a complicated procedure using a robust digital toolset while being completely remote is critical right now — and we see it staying this way for the foreseeable future. Our platform goes above and beyond having a camera in the room — we’re delivering custom support for each team member, and allowing them to gather and analyze data seamlessly.”
ExplORer’s platform is cloud-based and device agnostic, making it easily accessible on existing hardware in the OR, including mobile devices, desktop monitors, and TV screens. In addition to customized content for each team member in the OR, the platform collects data, allows staff to record timestamps and save annotated images, and assists in creating actionable insights to improve inefficiencies. In addition, the company’s customer success team customizes hardware kits to make set-up and video integration simple and easy to use.
ExplORer provides meaningful value to all functions of an organization and the surgical teams they work with, including sales, training, medical affairs, marketing, and research and development. For more information, visit www.explorersurgical.com.
