With the acquisition of Global Care Quest (GCQ), KARL STORZ expands its vision of providing true interoperability across OR technologies. The addition of GCQ’s ICIS technology to the OR1® integration solution creates a software system that “reaches out” over hospital networks to capture vital patient information from disparate sources. According to the company, features include:
- The ability for information to be gathered into one coordinated display, the ICIS Dashboard, which provides a customizable set of windows that practitioners can configure to suit clinical needs and specific preferences.
- Remote access provided by ICIS Mobile, allowing the same patient information to be viewed and controlled via secure Web access or using a handheld device over a cellular network.
- The ability for surgeons to stay connected through real-time delivery of patient records, bedside monitoring data, and laboratory results.
