WAYNE, N.J., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MAQUET Medical Systems USA today announced the commercial launch of TEGRIS, its new OR Integration system, in the United States. TEGRIS allows for seamless surgical suite control by providing operating room (OR) staff with a single point of control for all recording devices, OR equipment and room functions.
"By seamlessly integrating diverse technologies, TEGRIS addresses the key challenges presented by today's highly complex OR environment," said Raoul Quintero, President and CEO of MAQUET Medical Systems USA. "In order to minimize errors and enhance efficiency, a user-friendly system to manage inputs and outputs is vital. By putting comprehensive patient data at the surgeon's fingertips in an efficient platform, TEGRIS can empower medical professionals across every touch point to stay focused on the patient – all via a completely open and modular system."
With TEGRIS, OR teams can capture high-definition images and videos (from endoscopes, OR light cameras, room cameras, vital data, etc.) during various procedures and can record two video sources in HD quality simultaneously. Footage can be streamed directly from the OR to lecture halls, conference rooms or offices for real-time training or consultation. Staff can also save images and videos directly to the PACS in DICOM format and retrieve patient data directly from the central touch screen. Surgical safety checklists are seamlessly integrated into the system's workflow model, and as all patient information is imported directly from the HIS, no manual data entry is needed, helping to minimize errors.
Designed for maximum flexibility, TEGRIS also interfaces with diverse systems including HIS, PACS and other patient databases. It supports all common hardware and software interfaces, is vendor-neutral with regard to certain OR devices (e.g., endoscope manufacturers), and works w
