List of software startups
Software is starting to eat Orthopedics. Read – https://orthostreams.com/software/ . Below is my changing list of startups in the software space. (Note: List excludes electronic medical records companies and healthcare pathway services.)
AdviceHub – https://www.advicehub.co/ (formerly Reviews from Friends) provides advice patients need from people they know. Our anonymous chat messaging between new patients and previous patients on doctor, hospital, pharmaceutical and implant company websites helps patients overcome their fears and confidently proceed with surgery.
Augmedics – https://www.augmedics.com/ – AR, see-through surgery.
Automated Clinical – https://www.automatedclinical.com/ Evidence-based algorithms organize the world’s medical information making it useful and valuable at the point of care.
Better Day Health – https://www.betterdayhealth.com/ is a new type of EHR. Combines speech-to-text, mobile devices & web-based technologies to streamline clinical documentation. Saves time for clinicians.
CAIRA Surgical – http://www.cairasurgical.com – Using ML and AI, enables surgeons to consistently achieve precise implant position and optimal kinematics leading to improved outcomes, lower revision rates and cost reduction at each stage of care. First focus is knee replacement to launch in the US and Australia, followed by new products in hip, shoulder and trauma.
Fundamental Surgery – https://www.fundamentalsurgery.com/ – low cost VR training
JointPoint – https://www.jointpoint.com/ [ACQUIRED BY DEPUY] provides intraoperative analyze of fluoroscopic imagines to accurately recreate leg length and offset in hip arthroplasty. JointPoint is an FDA-cleared digital navigation system that uses only fluoroscopy to analyze leg-length, offset, and acetabular positioning for hip replacement surgery. JointPoint’s OneTrial® system assists surgeons in selecting optimal implant combinations by providing intraoperative data on how changing implant combinations will affect leg length and offset data. The surgeon can then choose the desired implant combination, eliminating the need for re-trialing. Surgeons report reduction in surgical time and fluoro use, with no additional hardware or devices required and without changing an existing surgical workflow. Preoperatively, surgeons can template with preloaded actual implant sizes and determine the starting point of leg-length and offset. JointPoint allows users to template with ease using portable image-capturing technology. Users can also streamline case planning by using the JointPoint calendar and share cases.
