The Optimus ISE software is the result of 10 years of development, resulting in a stable methodology for “the integration of everything” in the operating room. All electromechanical components, HVAC, logistics, AV, and medical devices are controlled by way of a single user interface with software that give the user the ability to control any device with a standardized and consistent, from device to device, manufacturer to manufacturer, user interface symbology.
The greatest obstacle to true integration of an operating room and the various devices utilized within it is the insistence of medical device companies upon maintaining proprietary control of their user interfaces, look-and-feel, and control software. Any company that offers an integration solution for its own medical devices (e.g. endoscopy units and video monitoring), is required to recertify its integration software every time a new device is introduced, making for a certification nightmare that has prevented a total integration solution from being developed.
Optimus is the first healthcare company to develop a software integration package that is capable of integrating all medical devices without requiring medical device companies to modify their proprietary software to become part of the ISE. This has been achieved by having developed the Optimus ORIM (Operating Room Integration Model) software model as its core component.
