ORANGE, Calif., Oct. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At the OR Manager Conference in National Harbor on September 24, ECRI Institute's Scott DiDonato listed mHealth as the #2 technology category to keep an eye on for the operating room. SpotOn Surgical was highlighted for its novel approach to virtually connecting medical device and equipment manufacturers to their nurse and physician customers with an intelligent tablet interface and mobile device applications.
"It was interesting to see the wave of operating room managers come to our booth after Scott's presentation," according to Glenn Mills, President of SpotOn. "ECRI is such a respected resource for OR managers that our mention provided a great boost to our supplier support model."
Tom Pfleider, SpotOn CEO added, "The industry is looking for innovative ways to address the new dynamics in the marketplace. Hospital access has become difficult for supplier personnel, which creates an additional burden on OR nurses. The SpotOn Portal (tablet) is the ultimate supplier reference guide for the nurse and also makes virtual experts available on demand when the situation warrants immediate response. Hospitals, nurses, suppliers and support personnel all benefit from the SpotOn Model."
The founders of SpotOn Surgical developed this service in response to industry trends that require a more efficient model for supporting increasingly complex medical devices at a time when both healthcare providers and suppliers are seeking ways to reduce costs and improve outcomes.
SpotOn Surgical was founded in June 2011 and is based in Orange, CA. The SpotOn's subscription based model utilizes new technology advances to address new challenges from the changing dynamics in the healthcare marketplace. SpotOn's tablet based perioperative tool will provide supplier's product support collateral for nurses and surgeons as well as the ability to bring supplier's expert eyes into the operating room on demand. This patent pending process is a cost effective means of providing quantitative and qualitative benefits for the nurse, surgeons, suppliers and their support personnel.
