Rods&Cones has published a new whitepaper on the benefits of remote working for global healthcare. The global pandemic brought about sweeping changes in every industry, perhaps none more so than in healthcare. But thanks to existing and developing technologies from Rods&Cones, more physicians and patients are discovering the benefits of remote support technologies. It’s sometimes said that necessity is the mother of invention. The restrictions due to COVID-19 in 2020 forced millions of people to work from home, and became a catalyst for increased demand in remote-working technologies. The OR might not be the most obvious workplace for remote working, but use cases before, during and after the pandemic have shown the powerful role that remote video assistance has in attending, escalating, and educating healthcare professionals. Using existing case studies, from the German doctor who performed a remote knee revision in Nairobi to the head of paediatric plastic surgery who supervised a surgery without setting foot in the room, this white paper examines the role played by remote surgical assistance, and medtech device representatives. It also explores the potential of remote technologies on surgeons’ ability to escalate in real time, educate junior surgeons, and moreover, achieve better patient outcomes.
