Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 29, 2016
With studies showing nearly 50% of robotic surgery costs tied to technical skills of surgeons and their teams and robotic surgery accounting for a growing portion of minimally invasive surgery, HealthTrust recognizes the importance and need for training in robotic surgery.
Mimic’s robotic surgery training expertise fosters the development of objective skills performance and allows institutions to develop training curricula and remedial programs that help surgeons learn in a safe virtual environment, faster and more efficiently through consulting services as well as hardware and software simulation training products.
“We are very delighted to have been awarded this contract and to have the privilege to serve HealthTrust’s members for their robotic surgery training needs,” said Mimic Technologies’ Founder and CEO, Jeff Berkley, PhD. “This opportunity to continue training robotic surgeons and helping institutions maximize their investment in robotic surgery will allow for reducing robotic surgery costs and better patient outcomes.”
Mimic’s consulting training subsidiary, Mimic Medical Education and Development (MimicMED), provides guidance in successfully implementing best practices to help fully develop new and existing robotic surgery training programs that can help to better train robotic surgeons, minimize costs and risks, and maximize an institution’s investment in robotic surgery.
