Earlier this year, Olympus, a global technology leader in designing and delivering innovative solutions for medical and surgical procedures, introduced EasySuite 4K. EasySuite 4K is a next-generation OR integration system that enables surgical and interventional clinicians to connect with the native and uncompressed visual insights derived from legacy, HD, and ultra-high definition (UHD) medical sources to streamline pre-, intra-, and post-operative clinician workflows. It has a range of features and benefits; one happens to be of the utmost importance to Olympus: patient safety.
EasySuite 4K makes it possible to deliver clear 4K video and images — plus clinically relevant patient information — to each care team member when and where they need it, adapting to their clinical workflows from the beginning. This allows the staff in any procedure room — from operating rooms, interventional X-ray, catheterization labs, electrophysiology labs, trauma bays, and more—to collaborate with their colleagues and focus on the patient care, not the technology.
Quicker access to the right patient images at the highest quality can mean the efficiency that allows patients to get the care they deserve faster, or with the input of multiple specialists.
EasySuite 4K automates surgical safety with pre-surgical safety checklists to guide the surgical team while enterprise-grade security and virus protection safeguard patient privacy and ensure compliance. Workflow-based, it enables staff to conduct a surgical “time-out” with the push of a button, bring in patient images from previous procedures and specialties, and download surgical images seamlessly to the EMR.
Of further significance, EasySuite 4K uses patient data from EHR and PACS systems to enhance visual clinical insights. This readily available information can be a critical piece to enabling the medical care team to diagnose and treat patients in the most efficient — and safest — way possible.
With EasySuite 4K’s simplified access to visual insights, more effective and efficient decision making throughout the continuum of care can be possible, enabling this solution to be a driver toward more coordinated care.
Olympus’ priority remains the safety of patients. The technological benefits for surgical teams from this next generation systems integration tool provide an additional perk.
Image Stream Medical Inc. (ISM), a wholly owned subsidiary of Olympus Corporation of the Americas (OCA), developed EasySuite 4K. It is the second product launched collaboratively since OCA acquired ISM in 2017 and is recognized as the global system integration platform of Olympus’ medical ecosystem.
