ePlus (NASDAQ:PLUS) announced a new partnership with Intel and Surgical Theater to assist customers in bridging the gap between doctors and patients through Surgical Theater’s Precision VR technology.
As quoted in the press release:
Accurate information and imagery is vitally important for surgeons, both before and during surgery. Patients and families also depend on clear, user-friendly data to make informed decisions about critical procedures. Virtual reality (VR) is emerging as an important tool for healthcare stakeholders—and Intel, Surgical Theater, and ePlus are leading the way to bring these precedent-setting capabilities to healthcare professionals and the people who depend on them for life-saving treatment.
Powered by Intel Core i7 processors, Precision VR combines F-16 flight simulation technology with 360° Virtual Realty to bring conventional medical imaging to life. Its Precision VR Engage™ visualization platform helps doctors more effectively educate patients and their families—giving them a “fly through” leading to a clearer understanding of the diagnosis, prognosis, surgical plan, and potential risks/benefits. The result is greater comfort and trust, and increased patient engagement, which translates into decreased patient migration, greater surgical conversion, and improved patient satisfaction.
On the surgical side, the Surgical Navigation Advanced Platform (SNAP) revolutionizes the way delicate and highly-complex surgical procedures are performed. Creating the surgical plan with the patient-specific 360VR models allows surgeons to leverage SNAP’s real-time VR guidance while operating. SNAP’s detailed imaging may also result in increasingly precise surgical procedures, potentially protecting the anatomy while optimizing patient outcomes and recovery times.
“ePlus is excited to bring this important technology to our healthcare customers,” said George Pashardis, VP leading ePlus’ healthcare practice. “The combination of Intel hardware and Surgical Theater’s visualization platform gives doctors, patients, and families an incredibly useful new tool that benefits everyone involved. Partnering with these two companies in VR makes ePlus’ healthcare practice even more valuable to our customers and potential customers.”
“Virtual reality is one of the new technologies that will transform healthcare,” said Jennifer Esposito, Intel’s general manager of health and life sciences. “Real-time processing is a core element of this patient-specific imaging solution and a great example how Intel’s technology contributes to improved outcomes and experiences for doctors and their patients. We are happy to see our partners collaborating to make this innovation widely available.”
“Surgical Theater is proud to launch our 360VR enterprise solutions in partnership with Intel and ePlus,” said Alon Zuckerman, chief operations officer and president of mVR division at Surgical Theater. “Intel and Surgical Theater have a strong partnership for bringing virtual reality and augmented reality solutions to healthcare; now with ePlus on board, Surgical Theater will be able to access new markets, bringing the most innovative 360VR solutions to benefit both patients and surgeons.”
