Olympus is showcasing its modular ENDOALPHA endoscopy solution within the latest Living Labs Global Showcase Awards. Living Labs Global is a non-profit association aiming to promote digital service innovations to a worldwide audience. In partnership with cities around the world the association has launched its awards initiative to discover and share winning technologies; the voting for these awards closes soon. As a novel solution increasing efficiencies in diagnostic and surgical endoscopy departments, enabling clinicians to collaborate with colleagues both within hospital and globally to enhance patient care, Olympus invites you to view, and vote for, its ENDOALPHA showcase -
“The complete Olympus ENDOALPHA solution is designed to fulfil the future clinicians’ needs and procedure requirements as medicine becomes increasingly advanced”
Final award winners will be announced on the eve of the Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona, on February 14th 2010. The winning entries will then be invited by the partner cities to pilot their solution in a real-life environment for evaluation. This ultimately enables winning Showcases to share best practices, best technologies, innovative business models and user experiences internationally.
Olympus ENDOALPHA is a visionary control, communication and documentation centre for the operating and procedure room already used in over hundreds of medical reference centres globally. It integrates the complete range of medical devices and peripheral equipment to enhance clinicians’ autonomy and simplify complex workflows.
