Clinical software applications expand Barco’s Nexxis OR-over-IP system
Kortrijk, Belgium, 24 August 2021 – Global visualization and collaboration leader Barco has expanded its solution portfolio for the digital operating room significantly. We look back on our track record, as we start nearing our OR-over-IP system Nexxis’s tenth birthday, anticipating a future with even more flexibility.
Excellent connectivity for surgical teams around the globe
Nexxis makes it possible to share uncompressed, 4K video and audio in and between operating rooms, in both 2D and 3D. It’s a unique technology platform that has been specifically designed for integration with the digital OR.
Some facts and figures:
- First introduced in 2012, Nexxis has steadily grown into a mature system that provides teams worldwide with a secure, solid environment to operate in.
- Nexxis obtained 510(k) clearance from the FDA and is registered as a medical device in the European Union.
- More than 12,000 patients every day undergo surgery enabled by Nexxis. This equals 4.2 million people per year!
- Around 4,500 operating rooms worldwide are equipped with Nexxis video-over-IP. This number will rise to 20,000 by 2025, thanks to a substantial growth in customer base since the pandemic.
- We partner with leading companies all over the world, that specialize in many different kinds of surgical technology and solutions, from neurosurgery and to minimally invasive orthopedic surgery.
Quality matters most, and Nexxis has become the de facto standard platform for digital operating rooms, thanks to our innovative, reliable, and value-add technology, reinforced with user focus and commitment. In the words of Kuan-Cheng Chang, M.D., Ph.D, Vice President and Director of Cardiovascular Medicine at China Medical University Hospital:
“Barco’s Nexxis helped us improve work efficiency in operations & made overall cardiovascular suite management a lot easier.”
Surgical displays integrated into the system
Barco has accumulated unparalleled experience in visualization technology. Our surgical displays portfolio comprises displays for use in any environment where surgical procedures are carried out. They are available in high definition or 4K ultra-high definition, and in 2D or 3D. Almost all of them have embedded Nexxis connectivity, which makes it possible to integrate them with the video-over-IP system on a ‘plug & play’ basis.
Next step: a flexible solution for every hospital
In a hospital, every team works differently, and every enterprise has its own needs and challenges. With solutions such as NexxisCare and NexxisLive, we have now started building up a third pillar: a portfolio of SaaS building blocks that makes it easier to manage ORs and to involve the necessary people. These dedicated applications are all about increasing value for the hospitals, without the need to have a customized product. An added value here is that it is possible to extend the solutions to non-Barco equipment as well, which gives their capabilities a much wider scope.
Cybersecurity and patient safety first, always
Providing hospitals with a safe environment to work in is always at the top of our priority list. When patient data are at stake, hospitals simply need the best in online security.
Davide Nocentini, VP of Surgical Imaging at Barco, explains: “‘Innovate for impact’ is one of the key elements of Barco’s DNA. We’re continuously researching in what ways technology can help us make our solutions even more clinically valuable for hospitals and clinical staff. For Nexxis, our main pillars are offering flexibility for surgical departments, best-in-class performance for operating teams, and cybersecurity and data protection for patients. Our offering is more than ever an integrated solution, with which we want to help hospitals lower risks and increase flexibility and productivity. We are proud of where we stand today with the Nexxis portfolio and are looking with confidence to the future.”
