Avail Medsystems as Keynote at the LSI USA 2023 Emerging Medtech Summit
Keynote Panel Session, March 22, 2023, at 8:05am (Track 2) in Dana Point, California
SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 16, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Avail, the digital hub of the operating room (OR) enabling the medical technology (MedTech) and healthcare industries to work smarter together to advance patient care, announced today that Daniel Hawkins, CEO of Avail Medsystems, will participate in a keynote panel session at Life Science Intelligence's (LSI) Emerging MedTech Summit USA 2023. Daniel will be alongside Frederic Moll, M.D., current Chief Development Officer at Johnson & Johnson and widely recognized as "the father of robotic surgery." The two will discuss the Evolution of the Digital Operating Room, and how a platform in the OR is needed to enable the digital transformation to extend beyond robotics.
Hawkins was the first non-technical hire at Intuitive Surgical, the company that developed the most prominently available multipurpose robotic surgery system, and he worked closely with Moll as co-founder of th company. During the LSI panel discussion, the two will discuss the possibilities of enhanced clinical capabilities when the operating room digitizes beyond robotics. Topics will include how a computing platform for the OR can address limiting factors, such as costs and increased complexity, while enabling OR's to reach the enhanced capabilities possible through digitization.
"Robotics introduces important clinical capability that often comes with substantial complexity necessitating increased collaboration to effectively manage procedural workflows," stated Moll. "This complexity can also require additional support from industry. The need for increased collaboration by clinical teams and industry can be facilitated today by telepresence."
Avail is a complete telepresence system and is built on a foundation of purpose-built hardware placed in facilities without capital cost. The hardware is designed to be a computing platform in the OR, enabling remote physicians and the MedTech industry to be virtually present in operating or procedure rooms and serving as a host to an array of digital tools. Clinical teams can invite remote healthcare providers and medical device experts to learn, share knowledge, collaborate, and provide product expertise by joining live procedures audibly and visually and sharing access to the digital tools.
"The MedTech industry is at a crossroads of sorts where it must reinvent legacy processes to better support the increased capability and complexity inherent in surgical robotics and digital OR enablement," stated Hawkins. "Avail connects a network of procedure rooms with remote medical professionals, enabling clinical teams to collaborate and therefore better leverage the latest digital tools. Fred and I look forward to sharing our thoughts and observations on these important topics at this year's Emerging MedTech Summit and appreciate LSI inviting us to participate in the event."
