Swiss Medical Group uses the cloud-based application mediCAD® Web as their group-wide preoperative planning softwareLandshut, Germany, )
mediCAD® Web is a cloud-based application that is started via the browser. An installation on the PC or tablet is not necessary in advance. However, the connection to the PAC system remains the usual way, just like the structure of well-known classic client-server software application mediCAD® 2D. Based on an internally hosted HTML5 platform, mediCAD® Web enables 2D preoperative hip, knee and corrective osteotomies (tibial / femoral). Preoperative planning mainly consists of carrying out anatomical measurements to analyse the patient's osteoarticular pathology and then simulates, from a digital image, the optimal size and positioning of the future prosthesis via its digital model presented in the software library. mediCAD® Web is a medical device certified according to European Directives (93/42 / EEC Annex 1 - Class 1m).
mediCAD® Web now being connected to the TM-PACS Telemis (that stores digital x-rays of patients) allows orthopaedic surgeons within SMN Clinics directly to select the image of the patient from mediCAD® Web from which they will afterwards do their planning. mediCAD® Web is accessible from any computer or tablet within the establishment through a simple internet browser. Once the planning has been carried out, the doctor is able to safe it by exporting it directly to the original patient file of the TM-PACS Telemis, thus ensuring perfect traceability of the study being carried out. The planned image is then visible through the PACS wherever it is accessible by the related doctors. In addition, a report can also be edited, printed and / or saved in the patient's digital file. These elements of traceability are important in the event of medico-legal problems.
During the intervention in the operating room, surgeons will therefore be able to display their plannings on a monitor via Telemis or mediCAD® Web in order to follow the planned procedure. The planning will also allow better preparation of the operating trolley by this prior simulation of the size of the implants, thereby reducing the handling of the stock of prostheses and associated tools for placement during the surgical procedure.
Information must be available everywhere, instantly, wherever you are. That is also important for imaging and planning results. The user must get the results quickly, whether inside or outside the clinic. The TM-Publisher Web Telemis application therefore also makes it possible to view the mediCAD® Web plannings previously saved in the TM-PACS available on any computer connected to the internet while preserving confidentiality for the patient.
Through the combination of the mediCAD® and Telemis applications, a whole high-performance and innovative ecosystem has been deployed within the Swiss Medical Network group which contributes to strengthening skills of excellence in orthopaedic and trauma surgery.
