Brainlab Acquires Voyant Health
Date:6/6/2011

MUNICH and TEL AVIV, Israel, June 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Brainlab announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Voyant Health.

Voyant Health's core technology, TraumaCad®, allows orthopedic surgeons to access patient images online and to plan and digitally template surgical procedures from anywhere – the clinic, the home, the hospital or the operating room (OR). Another key technology is VoyantLink™, which makes it easier for hospitals and care providers to obtain diagnostic images from their referral network. It eliminates the cumbersome and time-consuming manual transfer of images by CDs, and allows fast, easy and secure transfer of images through the Web to the hospital without VPNs or other expensive middleware. Images are uploaded by the referring center using a secure VoyantLink website, which are then sent automatically to the hospital PACS.

Voyant Health's technology complements Brainlab in several ways. Brainlab will create new possibilities in orthopedics with the integration of TraumaCad and OrthoWeb™ with Brainlab orthopedic surgical navigation technology.  VoyantLink will expand the framework for Quentry™, the groundbreaking online network for physicians developed by Brainlab.

"Brainlab and Voyant Health are incredibly synergistic, both in people and technology," Stefan Vilsmeier, CEO of Brainlab, said. "By combining the capabilities of VoyantLink, OrthoWeb and Quentry, not only will we make diagnostic images available anytime and anywhere, but enriching, sharing and using that data for surgical treatment will be easier than ever. Brainlab also values Voyant Health's strong PACS and distributor partnerships, and we plan to strengthen these relationships by adding more surgical planning options to their portfolio." He added, "However, more than technology, it's about the Voyant Health team – with Brainlab providing the resources and reach, their incredibly innovative ideas can change the world."

Starting in July 2009, Munich-based Brainlab and Tel Aviv-based Voyant Health began a partnership to broaden the reach of surgical planning by improving and easing access to images. When combining Voyant Health's orthopedic templating product with Digital Lightbox© by Brainlab, the companies saw more opportunities.

"Brainlab provides expanded reach and distribution that will allow Voyant Health technology to reach more healthcare facilities and their referral networks, as well as provide a gateway for Voyant Health technology into markets like neurosurgery and radiotherapy," Zeev Glozman, CEO of Voyant Health, said. "By enabling surgical treatment planning in the cloud, we will make life much easier for imaging centers, healthcare providers and surgeons, with an end goal to improve treatment while saving costs."
