4 Medical IT Alliance partners with Fulbourn Medical

The 4 Medical IT Alliance has appointed Fulbourn Medical as the official supplier of its integrated operating room and video imaging, workflow management, and surgical display systems to hospitals in the UK and Ireland.

The Alliance – ‘an elite group of leading medical technology manufacturers with a focus on disruptive innovation’ – and Fulbourn Medical say hospitals will now benefit from ‘a much improved, affordable, and sustainable workflow system, to improve patient care and operational safety and drive efficiencies’

Fulbourn Medical’s 25 years’ experience installing and maintaining integrated operating room architectural systems reportedly makes it ‘the ideal partner to complement its solutions with the supply, installation, and maintenance of the 4 Medical IT integrated operating room system to offer a one-stop-shop for turnkey new-build projects, refurbishments, or upgrades’.

4 Medical IT says it gives healthcare providers ‘a new way’ to share data, images, and knowledge, to improve patient care, ‘with a fresh look at workflow management and data enrichment’. Its system is vendor-neutral, deploys open standard IT network protocols, and is ‘guaranteed to work with all surgical imaging sources – from endoscopes to robots, C-arms, ultrasound, and PACs viewers’. 

Colin Dobbyne, 4 Medical IT’s MD, said: “We are excited to be working with Fulbourn Medical to offer surgical teams in the UK and Ireland our revolutionary operating room workspace – lossless video distribution up to 4K, DICOM/PACS image capture, seminar room video links, peer-to-peer video consultation, and workflow efficiency gains from a datarich OR control system, all fully integrated into an ergonomic solution.” 

The 4 Medical IT Alliance comprises NETGEAR, ZeeVee, NDS Surgical Imaging, Big Blue Solutions, and the SDVoE Alliance.
