Enhatch, a developer of software as a service (SaaS) for the medical device industry, is launching The Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem to elevate patient care.
"With the launch of the Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem, companies of all sizes can deliver world class technology to their surgeon customers without writing a single line of code," says Peter Verrillo, CEO of Enhatch. "The ecosystem generates personalized surgeries at a scale and speed never before seen in the musculoskeletal industry."
Today, this technology is in its infancy and controlled by a handful of medical device companies. These companies have invested billions of dollars in acquiring software companies to protect market share from rival upstarts. But technology moats limit access to a broader population, slows advancement in other emerging technologies, and increases cost for the hospital, patient, and healthcare system.
The Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem is giving opportunities to small and medium device companies to compete with industry giants. Meanwhile, it gives surgeons access to enabling technologies that will help improve their surgeries and collaboration with industry.
The Intelligent Surgery Ecosystem provides the tools necessary for surgeons to streamline their clinical workflow and continue to provide top quality care while safely increasing the number of procedures they perform. Device companies and surgeons are already beginning to embrace smart surgical technologies.
As these technologies evolve, more and more patients will continue to benefit, however, the door needs to be opened wider to keep up with demand and broader access needs to become a reality.
