Barco hardware and video management solutions offer faultless signal and data connectivity, providing a critical foundation for caresyntax software and advanced analytics applications. The portfolio synergy will aid both companies in meeting the rising global demand for surgical intelligence applications. In addition, Barco and caresyntax technologies will maintain the massive benefit of full vendor-neutrality with respect to device and IT systems integration, further bolstering value and future proof status of its surgical data connectivity, aggregation, and analytics solutions.
Cutting-edge developments in surgical automation and AI
Of equal significance to global reach, the partnership also entails a research and development component which will boost both partners’ solution portfolios. “This strategic partnership is an important step in extending the Nexxis value proposition to include workflow and analytics services,” says Filip Pintelon, General Manager Healthcare at Barco. “In conjunction with caresyntax, we aim to develop the first, true surgical operating system.

These new applications will make a strong contribution to improving patient safety, quality, and cost of outcomes in surgery.
