ORNet development history
Development of the ORNet Operating Room Management System started in 01.09.2009 when an agreement was signed between Bait Partner and Savonlinna Hospital in Finland with a target to develop an open operating room device management system that also is capable of image and sound management together with full integration of data into hospital patient network.
Input on functionality and graphical user interface came directly from users at Savonlinna hospital. Test and evaluation units were installed at the end of 2009.
ORNet VCS System was installed in 10 operating rooms in Savonlinna and during 2010 it was used with the following scope:
2881 surgical procedures
910 other procedures
Feedback from users was positive and certification procedures were initiated in order to bring the solution to the market. TÜV Nord was chosen as an auditor for the ORNet medical devices product family and all certifiation requirements were passed with no exceptions. Sales activities were started activly in the Nordic countries.
Joensuu hospital is another large ORNet VCS customer with their OR-s equipped with ORNet right from the beginning. In this year, they signed a development agreement and became the first customer to get customized features in their installed systems.
Joensuu hospital Pathology division has also been a major partner in the development of the ORNet Pathology product line.
Vaasa hospital in Finland established ORNet as their operating rooms management system in 2 locations.
Both locations use the same databases, therefore using ORNet made the work-flow for the hospital easier and more convenient.
Largest hospital expansion in Finland, the new building of the Turku University Hospital was the first one to start using 3D imaging with the ORNet VCS and has integration with the DaVinci surgery robot.
