InTouch Health and Platinum Training Partner to Provide a Comprehensive Suite of Remote Presence Video Collaboration and Broadcast Solutions for Surgeon Education across National Network of Surgical Skills Labs

InTouch Technologies, Inc. (dba InTouch Health) and Platinum Training announced today that the companies entered into a Definitive Agreement to develop and co-market 2-way video collaboration and broadcast solutions for surgeon training and education to be sold through Platinum’s national network of surgical skills labs.

The first offerings of the partnership were incubated at Platinum’s MERIN lab in Henderson, Nevada leveraging InTouch Health’s custom-developed RP-Vantage™ telementoring system and SureCAST™ webcasting solution. (The RP-Vantage combines InTouch Health’s core Remote Presence technology with multiple camera “vantage points” tailored for surgical telementoring and remote procedure collaboration in operating and procedure rooms.) These offerings enable real-time virtual attendance and broadcasts to complement in-person medical education programs and include moderated interactive training programs, surgeon-to-surgeon lab collaboration and training, live remote lab observation, as well as lab session recording and postproduction.

“We are very excited to be entering into a partnership with Platinum Training, the market leader in surgical skills lab management, to merge our surgical telementoring and broadcast solutions with their unique services, vision, high-quality facilities and consistent lab execution,” said Charlie Huiner, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development for InTouch Health. “Together our goal is to leverage innovative technology to offer a new paradigm for surgical training, providing all stakeholders – surgeons, medical device companies, sales and medical education staff – with extended options to attend training labs virtually, thereby multiplying the value of investments made to conduct in-person labs. We expect to greatly improve clinician access while also reducing travel and related expenses.”

“InTouch Health’s innovative technology and telemedicine market leadership and the intuitiveness of their surgical telementoring interface make them an ideal partner,” said Chuck Oddo, CEO of Platinum Training. “We expect over 50,000 medical professional visits in the next two years across our network of facilities. The clinical benefits gained by providing high-quality, timely and more frequent access to medical training will yield improved outcomes for many thousands of patients around the world.”
