Partnership Aimed at Optimizing Senior Care Through Augmented Reality Telecollaboration Tool
OpticSurg Inc. and Simpson Senior Services, today announced a partnership to implement OpticSurg’s Vision Beyond augmented reality telecollaboration solution at Simpson House to further optimize senior care. The partnership brings together innovative emerging technology and premium senior care.
“We are incredibly excited and humbled to partner with Simpson Senior Services and Dr. Carol McKinley. Simpson’s mission of empowering seniors to live life to the fullest is well aligned with our mission empower healthcare providers to continue providing care to the fullest” said Dr. Tran Tu Huynh, founder and CEO of OpticSurg. “We look forward to collaborating and iterating our knowledge and approach to continually make a positive impact together.”
With the new technology, the Simpson House clinical team will be able to quickly collaborate on wound care for their residents by giving their on-site staff real-time access to their off-site specialists. Using the Vision Beyond solution, on- site clinicians can call off-site specialists using augmented reality glasses. The off-site specialists can use their computer or mobile device to consult with the on-site clinician and see a real-time view of the patient wound through the glasses’ camera. The on-site clinician remains hands-free and can continue to care for the resident while receiving audio and visual guidance from the specialist.
“The benefits of Vision Beyond are immediately apparent. Healthcare providers and specialists can provide support to the care team at bedside virtually and interactively.” said Dr. Carol McKinley, PhD, President and CEO of Simpson Senior Services. “Technology like this could be a game-changer for care in the years to come.”
