Expect the Unforeseeable

Unprecedented challenges can happen at any moment, sometimes with patients’ lives hanging in the balance.
A clinician’s time is best spent on ensuring each patient gets what they need, when they need it, and not on dealing with situations related to their surroundings.

We have to be prepared to expect the unforeseeable ...

Real time access to clinical consultations is not only crucial in times of complexity in the operating room: The virtual exchange of know-how can bring added value to both the patient and your team.
A secure, cost-efficient and sustainable model of surgical care is needed …
