Citing Rising Interest in OR Workflow and Patient Safety, Companies' to Collaborate in U.S. Commercial Market
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and Telford, Penn, Oct. 20, 2017 – LiveData, Inc. and Draeger, Inc. today announced a co-marketing agreement to collaborate on marketing and sales of their complementary perioperative product lines in the commercial healthcare market in America. The agreement will be introduced in Boston at Anesthesiology 2017, October 21-25, the annual conference of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Representatives from LiveData and Draeger will be discussing and demonstrating their healthcare solutions in Draeger Booth 1621.
LiveData provides PeriOp Manager, an integrated real-time patient safety and perioperative workflow solution that coordinates and manages the patient’s journey through surgery. Draeger provides medical devices, anesthesia workstations and accessories, clinical information systems – specifically Innovian® Anesthesia, and the Infinity® OneNet networking system.
“One of the most critical requirements for safe surgery is team communication,” said LiveData CEO Jeffrey Robbins. “LiveData solutions visually integrate and deliver real-time patient and operational status to improve communication and empower clinical teams to deliver optimal care. With our two companies collaborating on sales and marketing, we can highlight the safety and efficiency benefits our integrated products can deliver to hospitals and surgery centers.”
“The importance of anesthesiology in ensuring successful surgery cannot be over emphasized,” said Lothar Thielen, President & Regional CEO, Draeger North America. “Given Draeger’s world-class leadership in the OR, it makes sense for us to work with LiveData, the leader in perioperative workflow and patient safety. LiveData has an ideal complement to Draeger solutions adding real-time patient status and surgical safety checklists in automated workflows.”
LiveData PeriOp Manager™ coordinates perioperative teams to deliver predictable outcomes. Real-time case and patient status information is displayed on wall-mounted screens throughout the perioperative area and is also available to the surgical teams on internet devices using secure hospital and facility networks. From preoperative assessments through surgery to discharge, PeriOp Manager helps surgical teams improve communication, patient safety, and operational efficiency.
