Date:5/29/2009

UPMC Mercy hospital has cuccessfully implemented the TraumaCad digital templating solution from Orthocrat. Using TraumaCad, UPMC Mercy's orthopedic surgeons can preoperatively plan their surgeries digitally, from anywhere within the UPMC enterprise.

Columbia, MD (PRWEB) May 29, 2009 -- Orthocrat, Ltd. announced today that UPMC Mercy, part of the UPMC global health enterprise, has successfully implemented the TraumaCad digital orthopedic templating solution.

TraumaCad allows UPMC Mercy's orthopedic surgeons to preoperatively plan their surgeries from anywhere, by accessing their patients' images using UPMC's enterprise-wide digital imaging (PACS) system.

Rasu B. Shrestha, MD, MBA, UPMC's Medical Director for Digital Imaging Informatics, explains, "Our orthopedic surgeons at UPMC Mercy can now digitally plan their surgeries at a time that is convenient to them, with complete access to all necessary x-rays and advanced planning tools. This allows the surgeon to more accurately predict the type and size of prosthetic implants, and is proving to be a clinical advantage."

"We are proud to have UPMC Mercy as our customer," says Zeev Glozman, Orthocrat's CEO. "In the coming months, we look forward to introducing ever more advanced clinical capabilities, such as our auto-hip templating and our advanced deformity-correction software, to UPMC's surgeons."

Dr. Shrestha adds, "The TraumaCad implementation has gone very smoothly, and we look forward to seeing increasing efficiencies for our orthopedic surgeons and benefits for our patients."
