LONDON, April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the digital operating rooms (O.R.s) solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes S-CAPE GmbH with the 2014 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership. S-CAPE® Prime OR solution facilitates the seamless flow of clinical content and patient information within and outside the O.R. as well as between other healthcare IT applications. By making available high levels of clinical details to the surgical staff, the S-CAPE® Prime OR solution enhances O.R. efficiency and patient outcomes as well as reduces the complexities of procedures.
S-CAPE® Prime OR platform features five flexible and configurable modules aimed at making optimal use of information, time, space and expertise. The first of these modules is the Prime OR Hub, which aids easy visualization of any clinical content at point-of-care, through a customizable hardware and software interface. It serves as a single point of access to any digital content in the O.R. The second module is the Prime OR Direct, a scalable and vendor-neutral integrator of multiple surgical video and imaging devices to centralize control and effectively distribute the right information per workflow needs inside the O.R.
The other modules include the Prime OR Share, a telemedicine solution enabling teleconferencing among clinicians, IT departments, and administrators inside and outside the O.R.; Prime OR Studio, a surgical documentation solution that intelligently assists clinicians in recording, editing and storing clinical content from medical devices; and Prime OR Link, a communication platform that integrates the OR department into the overarching IT infrastructure of the hospital.
"Significantly, the Prime OR is more customizable and modular than competitive solutions," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Shruthi Parakkal. "Both the hardware and software components of the Prime OR can be customized to the needs of the healthcare provider, making it truly scalable. Customers can also select the way the solution is deployed in the infrastructure of the hospital, accounting for spatial or systems design needs."
In terms of hardware, users can customize the size, design, and integration features of the OR Hub, as well as components of other modules. As for the software, a standard technology platform supports a wide variety of applications, which allows customization of solutions for customers so that it complies with the regional medical regulations. Its vendor-neutral, modular approach enables the solution to be interoperable and compatible with any of the existing solutions in an O.R.
As the company acknowledges that hospitals often have budget constraints, it assists them in customizing their digital O.R. solution and offers them the opportunity to upgrade and scale up at a later point. As a result, customers come back to S-CAPE GmbH for upgrades. This is a key element that differentiates the company from its larger and smaller competitors.
S-CAPE GmbH has a truly global footprint with its digital O.R. solution being installed across 4500 O.R.s, more than 1000 hospitals and 41 countries. It is a market leader in Germany, and a leading vendor in the Middle East and North Africa, and has growing footprints in Asia and Southeast Asia. In addition, S-CAPE has entrenched itself in other regions in Western Europe, including the United Kingdom, Nordic countries and Scandinavia.
"The company has identified the abundant opportunities for digital O.R. solutions in newly constructed O.R.s, and generates about 20 percent of its revenue from this segment," noted Parakkal. "Furthermore, its offerings in the O.R. upgrades market serve as a sustainable revenue stream, as the majority of the O.R.s in Western Europe are scaling up their existing O.R. equipment and solutions."
Beyond its outstanding product, S-CAPE GmbH also offers best-in-class customer service by sending a sales representative to a client's O.R. site to assess its needs and best configure the features, measurements and dimensions of the end product. The company also collaborates with healthcare practitioners by actively engaging in idea generation activities. Furthermore, it has several partnerships with leading medical device companies and original equipment manufacturers to ensure excellent customer care.
S-CAPE GmbH has been certified with DIN EN ISO 9001 since 1996 and has a quality-management system that is compatible with the various regional regulatory compliance networks. These validations of the superiority of the S-CAPE® Prime OR solution make the company richly deserving of the Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership.
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed a product with innovative features and functionality, gaining rapid acceptance in the market. The award recognizes the quality of the solution and the customer value enhancements it enables.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
