Intuitve (Nasdaq:ISRG), a global technology leader in minimally invasive care and the pioneer of robotic-assisted surgery, today announced that its India arm has launched its My Intuitive App (MIA), a unique platform for surgeons using da Vinci surgical systems in India.
The My Intuitive App is a single point of access for surgeons and it makes surgery data discoverable and actionable. My Intuitive App captures surgeons’ ergonomic preferences, timelines for cases and instruments used. This data is generated during the robotic-assisted surgical procedures performed using the da Vinci Surgical System and is analysed by the app to deliver actionable insights to help surgeons’ hone their skills and benchmark against their peers through global averages.
The mobile app is an important element of Intuitive’s digital and data support strategy. It serves as a digital portal to many parts of the Intuitive ecosystem — connecting its users to their personalized network of innovative robotic systems, learning, and services.
“At Intuitive, we pride ourselves on the technological advancements we bring to the world through innovations aimed at improving surgeon experience and patient outcomes. The My Intuitive App is a key part of our digital and data support strategy. We believe that through the utilization of MIA, surgeons can continue to leverage newer learning approaches, improve their surgical skills, and drive improved clinical outcomes,” said Mandeep Singh Kumar, Vice president, and General Manager of Intuitive India.
In addition to operative data, the MIA also provides access to the Intuitive Learning Platform, an in-depth learning environment with videos, learning plans, simulation modeuls, and other educational resources.
Dr. Vishal Soni, from Zydus hospitals, said, “The My Intuitive is an innovative and a handy app linked with the Robotic platform to capture all essential operative step data. MyIntuitive App is like a “fitness tracker” for robotic surgery. It provides crucial data and analytics about each robotic surgery. My Intuitive App is the much needed objective measurement to ones’ operative step metrics. Usage of this app has helped me analyze my past surgeries and continuously improve my surgical performance and outcomes.”
Dr.Saravana Rajamanickam, from Thangam Cancer Center, Namakkal said, “I have been using the My Intuitive App daily since I got access to it. Through the data in the App, I have been able to uncover areas where I could improve my surgical technique and thus be more efficient in the Operating Room, supporting me in my goal of providing better clinical outcomes for my patients”
“This app highlights Intuitive’s growing digital ecosystem for surgeons and serves as a gateway to our online training resources,” said Brian Miller, Intuitive’s chief digital officer. “As we expand its capabilities, My Intuitive App will be where to find our offerings and tools designed to support more efficient operations and ultimately help improve patient outcomes.”
Digital integration is transforming the operating room by creating seamless connections between data, insights and actions. Robotic surgery platforms are a great example of this in action. With more than 800 da Vinci trained robotic surgeons in India, and the adoption of Robotic Assisted Surgery procedures constantly and consistently increasing as more private and government hospitals across the country are accepting the latest surgical tool that technology has to offer, MIA will see increased usage over a period of time to assist with surgeon learning and adoption of da Vinci technology.
