Nashville, TN - June 20th, 2018: TeraRecon’s HoloPortalTM is one of the medical innovations that was showcased in front of thousands of healthcare providers at Premier Inc.’s 2018 Breakthroughs Conference and Exhibition on June 19.
TeraRecon’s HoloPortal was debuted to Premier members during the conference’s 10th annual Innovation Celebration, an event recognizing advancements in healthcare and highlighting suppliers dedicated to furthering innovation and improving patient outcomes in the industry.
“TeraRecon shares Premier’s commitment to providing valuable products to our alliance members that are safe, high-quality and cost-effective,” said Michael J. Alkire, Chief Operating Officer, Premier. “These innovations can truly benefit providers in our shared work to transform healthcare.”
Clinicians and other health system members of Premier selected TeraRecon’s HoloPortal augmented reality (AR) solution to be showcased at the Innovation Celebration due to its uniqueness, ability to have an impact on unmet clinical needs and potential to improve patient care.
The HoloPortal allows clinicians, students and patients to engage with medical imaging for education, collaboration and discussion purposes. This is accomplished by wearing augmented reality glasses, such as the Microsoft Hololens®, and interacting with medical imaging studies using voice and gesture controls. Leveraging Microsoft’s Azure® as a high-powered GPU-enabled computing platform, the AR solution is co-hosted in TeraRecon’s iNtuitionTM Cloud and uses image streaming technology optimized for superior speed and responsiveness.
“As a leader in advanced visualization, we are continuously innovating to deliver improved physician workflow and enable better patient care. Extending our viewing expertise to holography brings medical imaging off the traditional review screen and creates an engaging, interactive way to explore and better understand pathology. We are honored to have the HoloPortal selected as part of Premier’s Innovation Celebration.” said TeraRecon President and CEO, Jeff Sorenson.
Any supplier, regardless of whether the company is contracted with Premier, can be considered for participation in the Innovation Celebration. Premier contracts with more than 1,300 suppliers.
