MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., March 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Disruptive technologies, which refer to a product or service that revolutionizes screening, diagnostic, procedural, or medical/drug intervention capabilities can become the standards of care. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is a case in point. Using a variety of endoscopic and imaging devices in the operating room (OR), surgeons are able to maneuver around delicate structures and to precisely grasp, dissect, and suture within openings measured in millimeters. High-definition (HD) electronics have measurably enhanced this ability.
Frost & Sullivan, the Growth Partnership Company, believes that end-to-end integration of HD devices used in a variety of MIS procedures represents a new era in disruptive technology, one that goes beyond device selection to one of real-time medicine that could engender a sustainable difference in surgical care.
Frost & Sullivan recently completed a whitepaper, Creating a New Platform in Disruptive Technology: A Case Study of Digital Integration in the OR, that closely follows the design, planning, and implementation of end-to-end HD integrated operating suites at the Ruth and Raymond G. Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine at The Hospital of the
"Obsolescence and potential integration issues abound, as advances in surgical device technologies are introduced every six to nine months," explains Dr. Virginia Cardin, Dr.P.H., senior healthcare consultant with Frost & Sullivan. "To address this, the hospital must select an agile integration partner - one that is vendor-ne
