The My Intuitive App is a single point of access for surgeons and it makes surgery data discoverable and actionable. It captures surgeons’ ergonomic preferences, timelines for cases and instruments used. This data is generated during the robotic-assisted surgical procedures performed using the da Vinci Surgical System and is analysed by the app to deliver actionable insights to help surgeons hone their skills and benchmark against their peers through global averages.
The mobile app is an important element of Intuitive’s digital and data support strategy. It serves as a digital portal to many parts of the Intuitive ecosystem — connecting its users to their personalised network of innovative robotic systems, learning, and services.
“The My Intuitive App is a key part of our digital and data support strategy. We believe that through the utilisation of MIA, surgeons can continue to leverage newer learning approaches, improve their surgical skills, and drive improved clinical outcomes,” said Mandeep Singh Kumar, Vice President and General Manager Intuitive India.
In addition to operative data, the MIA also provides access to the Intuitive Learning Platform, an in-depth learning environment with videos, learning plans, simulation models, and other educational resources.
Dr Vishal Soni, Zydus Hospitals, said, “ MyIntuitive App is like a ‘fitness tracker’ for robotic surgery. It provides crucial data and analytics about each robotic surgery. My Intuitive App is the much needed objective measurement of ones’ operative step metrics. Usage of this app has helped me analyse my past surgeries and continuously improve my surgical performance and outcomes.”
Dr Saravana Rajamanickam Thangam Cancer Centre, Namakkal said, “Through the data in the app, I have been able to uncover areas where I could improve my surgical technique and thus be more efficient in the operating room, supporting me in my goal of providing better clinical outcomes for my patients”
Brian Miller, Chief Digital Officer, Intuitive, said, “As we expand its capabilities, My Intuitive App will be where to find our offerings and tools designed to support more efficient operations and ultimately help improve patient outcomes.”
Digital integration is transforming the operating room by creating seamless connections between data, insights and actions. Robotic surgery platforms are a great example of this in action. With more than 800 da Vinci trained robotic surgeons in India, and the adoption of robotic-assisted surgery procedures constantly and consistently increasing as more private and government hospitals across the country are accepting the latest surgical tool that technology has to offer, MIA will see increased usage over a period of time to assist with surgeon learning and adoption of da Vinci technology.
