Getinge’s New Torin Artificial Intelligence Solution Improves Hospital Efficiency

Published

on

The introduction of the Torin Artificial Intelligence (AI) functionality is designed to improve efficiency in managing schedules for surgical procedures and comes in the wake of a new Getinge survey. Among the participating hospitals 41% report significant backlogs and only 44% have implemented new digital tools that can improve proficiency in OR scheduling and patient management.

Getinge, a leading global provider of products and solutions that contribute to quality enhancement and cost efficiency within healthcare and life sciences, now introduces Torin with AI in the United States. The company also announced results from a landmark survey of hospital executives and surgeons in the U.S. showing hospitals are taking steps to speed up OR turnover times, hire new staff and require staff to work longer hours to address backlogs.

“For almost 18 months during the COVID-19 pandemic, both surgeons and patients made decisions to defer many forms of surgery if possible. As more patients feel confident about considering surgery, demand to schedule procedures at all types of hospitals and surgery centers has exploded in recent months,” says Eric Honroth, President, North America at Getinge. “While hospitals can take steps to hire more people and have staff work longer hours to address this backlog, they must also look at the most effective technology options to improve scheduling efficiency and utilization of resources.”

Getinge’s Torin software uses artificial intelligence technology that can quickly and seamlessly improve the speed and efficiency of scheduling surgical procedures. The Torin solution was launched in 2020 as a new resource to help with the planning, management and optimization of surgical procedures. Today’s introduction of a new suite of advanced functions for Torin, significantly expands capabilities in key areas including predicting surgery times, managing wait lists and data security. The system can produce highly accurate assessments of surgical procedure timing based on a range of variables including surgery type, patient data, relevant devices and staffing. To address scheduling backlogs, the software ranks pending procedures based on clinical and resource parameters, proposes optimized pre-schedules and integrates the process with existing scheduling functionalities.

“The new capabilities now available with Torin are specifically designed to help hospitals and surgery centers address many areas that are major challenges, including accurate assessments of surgery times, scheduling and wait list management, applications of mobile devices and data security requirements based on their specific pre-requisites,“ says Charlotte Enlund, Vice President Integrated Workflow Solutions at Getinge. She adds, “For long term acute care facilities, which our study found to be extraordinarily challenged by surgical backlog, we are happy to offer support with Torin OptimalQ, our stand-alone tool, for quick relief in planning and optimizing the waiting list.”

Getinge Post-Pandemic Surgical Backlog Study

In May 2021, Getinge conducted a survey of 60 senior executives and surgeons from U.S. hospitals to assess the extent and impact of surgical backlogs that are developing as a result of the increase in patient demand as the U.S. emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic. Among the findings:

  • 41% of hospitals report that they are experiencing a surgical backlog, with higher levels of delays reported in long-term acute care (60%) and outpatient surgery (53%) settings.
  • While 56% of hospitals report that they plan to hire more staff and 52% say they plan to require staff to work more hours to address the backlog, fewer than half (44%) report that they are using advanced digital tools that have been widely shown to improve operating efficiencies and scheduling challenges in surgical settings, with the lowest rate found in acute care settings (27%).
  • Hospitals with the longest scheduling delays were also the least likely to use advanced digital technologies to improve operational efficiencies.

“With thousands of patients facing delays in surgeries because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the need to improve scheduling efficiencies has never been more essential,” says Eric Honroth.  “Advances in AI technology can play a central role in a comprehensive plan to address these backlogs and can help to improve efficiency and lower costs for hospitals and surgery centers.”

Cartessa Aesthetics’ Innovative Multi-Modality Treatment Leads Demand for Non-Invasive Body Procedures

Published

on

MELVILLE, N.Y., July 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Cartessa Aesthetics recently launched its newest device, PHYSIQ, leading the demand for the latest advancement in body treatments. PHYSIQ is a novel, dual-modality system that offers deep heat to target tissue and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to re-educate muscle – all from one device and in one session. An incredibly versatile device, PHYSIQ’s four applicators can be individually adjusted to tailor the energy and modality delivered to one or more body areas. Providers can select EMS or deep heat only or they have the unique ability to deliver both modalities sequentially within one treatment to maximize results and overall comfort. Treatments are hands-free, require no downtime and can be completely customized to meet each patient’s unique body goals.

Cartessa Aesthetics has made a name for itself by working with leading global aesthetic manufacturers to introduce best-in-class devices to the North American market. With PHYSIQ, aesthetic providers and patients have an optimized body treatment distinct from existing technology in the space. 

“Optimizing clinical outcomes while providing best-in-class return on investment to physicians is at the core of Cartessa’s mission statement,” said Gabe Lubin, Cartessa Aesthetics Founder and CEO. “More people are favoring non-invasive procedures, even for treatments that address challenging body aesthetics. Patients want results, but without the pain and downtime that comes with surgery. Being able to offer a more complete patient treatment in a 30-minute session will offer providers a unique competitive advantage in the robust body market.”

The non-invasive body treatment category has erupted in the last decade. From 2011 to 2018 the number of procedures grew four-fold and it is estimated that by 2025, the North American market will hit $1.6 billion growing at an 8% compounded growth rate. PHYSIQ’s low consumable costs, minimal required staff-time and healthy patient demand makes it a premier investment opportunity for aesthetic providers. Sessions range from 24 to 36 minutes and the ability to address multiple body areas with multiple modalities in one session has established PHYSIQ as being truly unique in the body space.

Those interested in PHYSIQ can learn more by visiting www.physiqbody.com or reach out to a Cartessa Aesthetics agent via email at [email protected].

Approximate pricing, $500/session and up. Although results may be noticed after only the first treatment, PHYSIQ is administered in a series of 5 treatments/sessions, 1 treatment every 2 weeks.
