Large Oshawa clinic selects Orthocrat for surgical planning

OSHAWA, Ont. – The Oshawa Clinic, Canada’s largest private physician practice, has selected Orthocrat, a leading digital orthopedic surgical planning solution, to provide advanced surgical planning and templating software for its orthopedic surgeons.

The three-clinic system, located just east of Toronto, recently adopted Orthocrat’s TraumaCad orthopedic surgical planning software as a fully integrated element of its new IntelePACS picture archiving and communication system. The new PACS system will serve more than 90 physicians in the flagship Oshawa Clinic, as well as the group’s Courtice Health Centre and Taunton Health Centre.

By incorporating TraumaCad, the new PACS gives orthopedists ‘anywhere access’ to powerful surgical planning tools.

“Our PACS implementation team is very happy with our choice of TraumaCad. We were very pleased with the readiness of TraumaCad as our PACS deployment team had pre-loaded all the orthopedic templates currently used by our surgeons,” says Deric Smith, PACS Administrator for Oshawa Clinic. “The implementation of TraumaCad has propelled the Oshawa Clinic into the digital world of surgical planning. The user friendliness of the software has made it simple in training our orthopedic surgeons onsite.”

TraumaCad’s integration with Intelerad’s state-of-the-art IntelePACS gives orthopedic surgeons user-friendly access to advanced display protocols and flexible review functionalities across the enterprise. TraumaCad’s orthopedic planning tools are available anywhere on the PACS network.

Templated images are seamlessly updated so surgical plans are available on demand throughout the enterprise. “Orthocrat is proud to have our TraumaCad software selected by Canada’s largest medical group practice,” said Zeev Glozman, Orthocrat’s founder and CEO. “Oshawa’s choice of TraumaCad illustrates Orthocrat’s rapid growth in international markets, as orthopedists worldwide recognize the benefits of our robust surgical planning solution.”

TraumaCad brings Oshawa a host of advantages over competing applications, the company said. Most importantly, TraumaCad is a true thin-client solution, whose Web-based architecture enables downloads from a central server and delivers a consistent, PACS-integrated working environment, regardless of the user’s location.
