Smith & Nephew Acquires two Software Assets from S2 Interactive

smithSmith & Nephew, the global medical technology business, has announced the acquisition of two software assets from S2 Interactive, a surgical software development company.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Following are the two software applications acquired by Smith & Nephew

  • Virtual Backtable (VBT) provides a visual map of each surgeons preferences covering patient preparation, OR planning and the surgical sequence. VBT also provides a learning management module that helps train new scrub technicians on the surgical sequence, instrument flow and tray layout “ potentially reducing training time by as much as 40 percent.
  • TrayTouch improves the efficiency, and documents inspection of the central processing department that cleans, re-assembles and sterilises the instrument sets prior returning them to the ORs.

Both the applications allow hospitals and ASC customers to access, analyse and manage real-time data related to instrument utilisation during surgery. This data allows central processing and operating room administrators to identify the instruments an individual surgeon uses during a specific procedure, assemble, prepare and streamline the instrument trays accordingly, and train the OR staff using interactive, visual layouts of each tray.
