MeriConnect makes surgical video and image handling simpler and more efficient

Video recordings in the operating room are becoming more common as non-invasive surgery and new medical technology are emerging. Additionally, hospitals need to pay more attention to the quality of care which increases the need for traceability. Merivaara now offers a solution, MeriConnect™, that enables surgeons to access and edit images and videos immediately after surgery at their own desk. This helps to save time, speed up the operating theatre turnover and improve patient safety.    

MeriConnect is a browser based integration and archiving system, designed to function with Merivaara OpenOR™, a vendor-independent operating room (OR) integration and image handling system. MeriConnect allows users to store, edit and transfer data directly after surgery. It can be used in addition to existing PACS and other archiving systems or even entirely replace them.

The system consolidates and stores data from surgical imaging, radiology, hospital information systems and clinical databases with short or long term retention policies. MeriConnect makes data accessible for surgeons and clinicians from their own computers outside the OR without the need for any client software. The documentation tool provides highly visual and easy-to-use features enabling fast and efficient diagnostics and reporting. By connecting with the hospital's existing systems, MeriConnect allows hospitals to have smooth and functional multi-vendor environments.

OpenOR is Merivaara’s revolutionary open architecture management system that integrates operating room devices, data and image management based on the need of the surgical department. Additionally, OpenOR enables real-time remote consultation and flexible telemedicine. Together with MeriConnect OpenOR provides hassle-free and efficient image and video handling that help surgeons concentrate on what they do the best.

New Merivaara Q-Flow surgical light can reduce the risk of hospital infections

Merivaara Q-FlowTM surgical light improves the working environment in operating rooms as well as offers a new way to reduce the risk of infections.

The new Merivaara Q-Flow is a major step forward from traditional operating room lights. Designed and manufactured in Finland, Q-Flow was developed to fulfil the needs of the modern surgical team. It offers improvements on many standard features in the industry as well as radical innovations.

“I believe this is one of the very best operating theatre lights in the whole world,” says CEO Markku Aherto. “We are very excited about this excellent product.”

The light gives superb colour rendering, particularly in red and skin shades, which make the product perfect for a variety of surgeries such as internal or plastic surgery. The Q-Flow gives a very deep column of light and dynamic obstacle compensation, so if the surgeon bends over her patient sensors brighten other LEDs to reduce shadows.

Moreover, the light has sterile intuitive controls. The Q-Flow displays simple user instructions onto the operating table so the surgeon does not have to look up.

“We had surgeons, anaesthesiologists and nurses give us their input as we developed the Q-Flow,” Aherto continues. “They are very positive about the final result.”

One of the most ground-breaking features is the way it improves hygienic conditions. Standard operating room lights create turbulence intensity, acting like an aircraft wing to pull particulates in the air right over the patient. Merivaara’s designers shaped the Q-Flow as a series of concentric circles with open spaces in between. This improves laminar air flow so sterile conditions are maintained and the risk of infection is reduced. The standard turbulence intensity should be below 37.5% but the Q-Flow boasts 15.9% according to the DIN 1946-4:2008 standard.

The Q-Flow is a part of the Merivaara FluentTM concept, which enhances the usability of operating rooms. This includes an intuitive user interface which works across a variety of devices, such as Q-Flow, operating tables and an integrated operating system. Often a single operating room may have equipment with different user interfaces. With Merivaara Fluent, each device can have the same user interface, allowing the medical staff to concentrate on the patient instead of learning how to use the devices.

“All the Q-Flow’s design and technology is Finnish,” concludes Aherto. “Finnish health tech has such a good reputation around the globe. I am proud that we can offer something to the world which contributes to Finland’s great reputation.”

Q-Flow will be available to the market from December 2016.

Increasing the usability of operating rooms by enhancing smart operating room design

Merivaara Corp., a Finnish provider of hospital furniture and operating room systems, has created a new concept, Merivaara Fluent™, that will enhance operating room technology and increase the usability of ORs. It achieves this by helping the nursing staff focus on what they do best and by improving hygiene levels and reducing the risk of infection, thus furthering patient safety and quality of care.

The new concept builds on Merivaara's integrated operating room control system, which has been very well received and is already being used in several countries. With this concept, Merivaara is taking its design philosophy to create user-friendly equipment further into other product areas.

”Operating rooms usually have many different devices and several user interfaces, such as a wall panel, a computer or a control panel on the unit itself. The fact that these user interfaces are not made in a logical or visually uniform way affects usability, and the operating room staff will often have to spend too much time learning how to use them,” explains Jyrki Nieminen, Director of R&D and Product Management at Merivaara.

“Our aim is to make the functions easy to understand, consistent and uniform, whatever the device.”

The latest addition to the new concept is a surgical light, Q-Flow™, which has been developed in close collaboration with end-users. Boasting a host of outstanding technical features, the new surgical light has been designed with optimal operating room ventilation in mind. This will help keep the air around the patient clean, thereby reducing the risk of infection.

Boosting competitiveness through collaboration

With the new concept, Merivaara is setting its sights firmly on expanding into more foreign markets and increasing its share of Finland's home market. Finnish know-how in health technology is highly appreciated worldwide, and Europe alone will see around EUR 50 billion invested in health care facilities over the next six to seven years – and the figure will be even higher for emerging markets.

“Our products are already used in over a hundred countries. If we focus on the development and marketing of smart products for the operating room, we'll be well placed to further strengthen our position in international markets. Competition is fierce, but we can use our high quality products and improved customer experience to our advantage,” says Josefin Hoviniemi, Merivaara's Director of Corporate Marketing & Domestic Sales.

Merivaara has renewed its Showroom in Lahti, and its corporate website. Hoviniemi also stresses the importance of networking and collaboration.

“Internationally speaking, we're rather a small player, but through collaboration we are stronger. We have, for example, teamed up with Halton and Hermetel to create an integrated operating room solution, Inoroom (www.inoroom.com/en), which consists of a clean room, a ventilation system and a smart operating room control system. Our new surgical light was developed together with a number of Finnish companies who lead the way in their respective fields. Manufacturing takes place at our facility in Lahti, Finland. This is one way we are doing our bit to boost Finnish health technology.”
