Digital Surgery, a health technology company, has become an official Microsoft Mixed Reality Partner (MMRP). As a result, the company will create mixed reality solutions based on Microsoft HoloLens to improve the delivery of surgical care.
“The Microsoft recognition is truly an honour and sets the stage for our larger mission, which is to deliver safe surgical care for all,” says Jean Nehme, Digital Surgery’s CEO. “With our artificial intelligence (AI) technology and database of digital surgical processes, we’ve trained a computer to understand surgical procedures and predict what happens next. With HoloLens, we open the exciting opportunity to use the system’s integrated camera as the visual recognition system to deliver even more immersive experiences for the entire surgical team. This collaboration is a critical part of our strategy to partner with the world’s best technology firms, especially providers of breakthrough hardware, to support the delivery of safer surgery. I am excited to see what we can accomplish together.”
Leila Martine, product director for the Mixed Reality division at Microsoft, said: “We are delighted to have Digital Surgery accredited as a Mixed Reality Partner. Given the pace of technological change, it is key that customers can access partners who understand mixed reality potential and have the proven ability to deliver transformative solutions. It’s great to see Microsoft HoloLens being added to Digital Surgery’s impressive content catalogue and help us jointly shape the future of surgery and improvements in patient outcomes.”
