Smith+Nephew announced significant enhancements to its Real Intelligence digital ecosystem and surgical robotics programs. These include an exclusive preview of RI.HIP NAVIGATION software on the CORI Surgical System and the commercial availability of RI.INSIGHTS, a global data management platform designed to advance the standard of care for robotics-assisted joint replacement procedures.
The addition of RI.HIP NAVIGATION software to CORI, which is pending FDA clearance, will allow hospitals, outpatient departments and ASCs to perform robotic-assisted knee surgery and computer-guided (navigated) hip surgery using one platform.
Introduced last year on a limited basis, RI.INSIGHTS is the first platform designed to enable orthopedic surgeons to benchmark robotic surgical experiences with global users to optimize surgical planning and improve patient-reported outcome measures. RI.INSIGHTS collects anonymized intra-op data and then presents surgeon case data via a secure data portal, which can be reviewed with independent post-op patient outcomes, allowing surgeons to gain and readily apply insights from their robotics-assisted surgical procedures.
