CARE Joins Forces with Digital Surgery
Originally posted by Gregory Cook, President & CEO – CARE on LinkedIn
At CARE, we strive to partner with other industry leaders who can bring high-quality, meaningful contributions to our members. In the spirit of that goal, we have joined forces with Digital Surgery, a leader in simulation training, surgical video management and storage, and automated surgical analytics. Digital Surgery’s award-winning mobile application Touch Surgery houses more than 200 surgical simulations across 14 specialties, and its content library is continuously growing. The company’s latest offering, Touch Surgery Professional, offers secure video storage and management, automated analytics, annotation tools, and sharing capabilities for peer review and training purposes.
Together, CARE and Digital Surgery offer unique benefits to members that make coverage through CARE an even more invaluable investment. For example, qualified* Touch Surgery Professional (TS Pro) members can receive up to 10% off their CARE insurance policy. Another benefit of combined membership is knowledge exchange, which grows exponentially as members exchange ideas, solutions, and best practices via the TS Pro platform.
Digital Surgery’s goal is to utilize digital technology to empower surgeons and surgical teams all over the world to create safer, better outcomes. Like many of us in the healthcare field, Digital Surgery wants its tools to help increase knowledge and improve the delivery of surgical care across the globe.
