Product description and innovation synopsis:
MedPresence is the medical industry’s first enterprise virtual presence solution. The cloud-based service empowers surgical and care teams to quickly and securely connect to clinical specialists, technicians, trainers, or manufacturer’s representatives from across the organization or around the world, and at any time — virtually. The system expands the expertise of in-room surgical teams with virtual or remote participants. In-room participants share room-context and imaging sources with virtual participants, allowing virtual experts to participate just as if they were in the room.
What sets this product apart from others available in the industry?
With MedPresence, participants interact just as if they were in the room together. Remote colleagues, students, and vendors can fully participate in the procedure space through a rich, interactive experience combining video, audio, and relevant contextual imagery and information, with shared control and real-time telestration.
Validated by an independent, nationally recognized security firm, MedPresence protects the integrity of sensitive information, featuring a fully encrypted, end-to-end security architecture. The patent-pending technology offers innovative features like automated masking of PHI, “on air” indicators, and one-button privacy mode enables real-time collaboration while safeguarding patient and clinician privacy, as well as ensuring HIPAA compliance.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
MedPresence helps improve the delivery of patient care by enabling surgical and interventional clinicians to virtually connect and collaborate in ways that have never before been possible or practical. The system provides real-time sharing of procedural imagery, applications, and in-room frame of reference to create a context-rich, immersive experience.
MedPresence keeps clinicians in control and fully aware of when the room is “on air” and when remote participants “enter the room.” The ability to choose who is physically present in the procedure room allows an unlimited number of virtual visitors into the room who pose ZERO infection risk.
