upgrade to modern OR Integration can help the hospital facility be more effective.

What should healthcare product/service evaluation and purchasing teams know about your company? Why are your ser- vices a good investment?

Cavallaro: We make use of specific tools and methods when designing a

space that show how to effectively use the space more efficiently — and more efficient use of space saves dollars and staff and re- duces materials and the cost of space itself.

Using these tools, we can also assist in un- derstanding how much of the space is re- quired based on expected patient volumes.

all areas of capital and construc- tion investment in their facilities. Our capa- bilities and consulting expertise includes: • Analytics and expertise to help accurate- ly anticipate critical health care trends and understand unique, local market dynamics

• Capital equipment services, including medical equipment planning, Revit/BIM design, procurement, project management, logistics and installation coordination and capital equipment lifecycle management

• Subject matter expertise in facilities and construction to identify opportunities for process improvement and standardiza- tion/aggregation and savings on day-to- day facilities, plant operations and related services

• GPO agreements to support all aspects of capital and construction projects, as well as day-to-day maintenance, repair and operations of facilities

integration technology should make it extremely easy for staff to access and orchestrate the overwhelming flow of live/ archived images and patient data in a Hybrid or traditional OR while managing key equip- ment/room functions from a single point of control.

Rockow: More than anything else, OR

Today, many OR integration systems overcomplicate what absolutely needs to be easy, creating a degree of uncertainty and confusion among OR staff members who need to access information and modify set- tings without hesitation or delay. Getinge’s Tegris OR Integration System

Properly dried channels reduce the risk of infection. • The Airtime Instrument Channel Dryer

uses HEPA fi ltered air to dry the air/water, suction and auxiliary water channels after automated reprocessing. Also available with an instrument air option.

• Uses two independent pumps and timers that will dry two scopes simultaneously. Air pressure will not drop when you begin drying a second scope.

• Airtime’s dual screen allows for two instruments to be dried with independent start and stop times.

• Restricted channel sensors will

immediately shut off the Airtime pump and alert the user of a potentially clogged channel.

• Available options: IV pole mounted, wall mounted or on a counter stand.

features a highly intuitive touchscreen in- terface and scalable/upgradeable system architecture that dramatically simplifies total connectivity inside and outside of the surgi- cal suite. Tegris is designed to interface with leading HIS, RIS, OR planning and PACS systems to seamlessly integrate into existing IT environments. Scalability and upgradability make it pos-

sible for Tegris to protect an institution’s initial investment by supporting the ever expanding and changing needs in the OR as standards and technology such as 4K video routing continue to evolve.

Bottino: STERIS Harmony iQ | BDV In- tegration Systems are designed

to fit into today’s environments with tomor- row’s needs in mind. Our OR integration systems offer a unique, minimally disruptive approach to installation, easily fitting within the design and infrastructure of an existing OR. Because our systems are card-based and extremely flexible and upgradeable, once the OR integration system is installed, facility staff can enjoy these systems for years, quickly adding new capabilities and connec- tions as needed, with minimal OR downtime. These upgrades can range from adding our SignatureSuite solution for patient relaxation, to a simple card-based 4K upgrade to allow connection of the latest 4K imaging devices, and much more. HPN
