EL SEGUNDO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc., a leader in endoscopic imaging and related surgical systems, announces a powerful upgrade to the TELE PACK+ compact endoscopy system. The self-contained, all-in-one device is now compatible with the StreamConnect® networking and data-management system.
Created for outpatient sites of care, the TELE PACK+ is a portable video system that combines all the essential components (light source, camera control unit, and display) needed for endoscopic diagnosis and treatment. Compatible with a wide range of rigid and flexible digital scopes—including single-use versions—it can capture clinical video and HD images for procedures such as stroboscopy that previously would have required far more extensive equipment and specialized expertise. With StreamConnect®, outpatient physicians can now attach those videos to the patient’s health record or share them with surgical specialists at other sites within the enterprise. That means fewer visits and less inconvenience for the patient, greater efficiency and security for providers.
“When we introduced the TELE PACK+ last year, compatibility with StreamConnect® was not yet possible,” explained Monica Ambrose, Executive Director, Surgical Marketing, KARL STORZ. “But because we engineer all of our products for modularity, scalability, and forward compatibility, we can continue to make incremental improvements over time. As a result, existing TELE PACK+ users can enjoy this new functionality with a simple and free software update.”
“Having our new TELE PACK+ units networked via StreamConnect® has been the perfect solution for our health system,” said Mas Takashima, MD FACS. “The TELE PACK+ provides the high-definition and quality we require for diagnosis and treatment, and the price point and compact footprint allows us to meet increasing demand. TELE PACK+ in conjunction with StreamConnect® allows us to efficiently capture and manage content across all our locations.”
With TELE PACK+, healthcare providers enjoy a universal interface that lets clinicians use the same types of cameras and scopes across all locations and lets administrators standardize across multiple specialties (ENT, Urology, Gynecology, and more). The enhanced documentation and networking functions made possible with StreamConnect® enable multi-tier facilities to seamlessly connect and coordinate all their sites of care.
With its ease of use, portability, and clinical value, the TELE PACK+ is part of the KARL STORZ mission to enable anywhere care. For more information regarding the TELE PACK+ with StreamConnect®, please visit:
