According to the company, the software is designed to streamline the flow of information, surgical planning, and enable electronic medical record and diagnostic device integration.
Bausch + Lomb Corp today introduced new surgical planning software for the Eyetelligence platform.
According to a news release,1 the software is designed to streamline the flow of information, surgical planning, and enable electronic medical record (EMR) and diagnostic device integration.
Luc Bonnefoy, president, Global Surgical, Bausch + Lomb, noted in the release that it was 5 years ago that the company debuted Eyetelligence to help surgeons work smarter and more efficiently using cloud-based technology.1
“Building upon that vision, this new software allows surgeons to simplify the complex and time-consuming surgical planning process,” Bonnefoy said in the release. “This is the first of many software releases planned as we continue to refine and expand upon the platform’s capabilities to meet the ever-evolving needs of doctors, clinics and their patients.”
Moreover, the company noted its Eyetelligence surgical planning software provides a seamless, secure flow of information from the office to the operating room, ensuring surgeons can manage data and personalize their approach to each case digitally without the need for multiple documents, sources and folders. The company noted the link across all aspects of the procedure is aimed to help avoid lost data and time, and surgeons can work with various EMR and diagnostic platforms, eliminating the need to purchase specific equipment or train staff on new technologies.
According to the news release, the company’s surgical planning software offers a surgeon-focused app as well as a nursing-focused app. These apps provide access to critical, timely data related to the patient and procedure, while enhancing communication and helping to improve workflow.
The Eyetelligence platform also includes software to connect to Bausch + Lomb’s Stellaris Elite Vision Enhancement System, a repository for critical data to aid in surgical procedure analytics. The platform also allows surgeons to access settings on all their Stellaris Elite machines and provides fast access to remote technical support.1
Mark Lobanoff, MD, director, refractive surgery, OVO LASIK + LENS, Minneapolis, and founder of Lochan, LLC, the company that Bausch + Lomb entered an agreement with in 2021 to further develop the software, highlighted the challenges addressed by the software.
“As a high-volume cataract surgeon, I am all too familiar with the challenges of managing data from multiple sources,” Lobanoff said in the news release. “Eyetelligence surgical planning software addresses these challenges, making the surgeon’s life easier.”
