Realizing digital surgery: Turning buzzwords into business

Alex Maret, Vice President Robotics, Cambridge Consultants

Sunley Room 13:00 – 14:00 (Lunch will be provided in the room)

The healthcare industry is eagerly awaiting the reduced costs and improved outcomes that digital surgery is promising, but are we taking the right steps to bring it to life? Are our legacy systems, methods, and strategies well suited to deliver digital transformation? Though the ambitious goals of this revolution are relatively easy to articulate, the roadmap to realizing this vision is clouded with uncertainty and the obstacles can seem daunting. This presentation explores the changes that are coming in surgery and the changes to our legacy thinking and methods that will be required to create products and technologies today to form the foundation of the digital future.

Medical robotics Research  & Innovation in Auris Health.

In Auris Health we push the boundaries of robotics to deliver clinical performance not attainable through any other means. We work on rigid controls & robotics, flexible/soft robotics and physician robot interaction. We research, prototype, and develop context-aware intelligent algorithms that meet patient and physician needs. We strive to improve patient outcomes and to make next-generation medical robotics safer.

In this session, we’ll cover a range of topics to share how we innovate  and work in Auris:

  • Transforming Intervention with the MONARCH® Platform for Bronchoscopy and Urology
  • Controls & Robotics in Auris
  • Research in Industry: Algorithms & AI
  • Industry or Academia career path
