"The launch of the Helion System demonstrates our continued commitment to advancing Hillrom's connected care capabilities in the operating room," said Hillrom president and CEO John Groetelaars. "Our intuitive and reliable Helion Integrated Surgical System will serve as the core of the operating room, enhancing OR efficiency and communications, and allowing care teams to focus on the patient and surgical procedure versus the complexity of their technology."
In 2020, Hillrom acquired Videomed, a pioneer in OR integration with hundreds of installations worldwide, to bring Hillrom's vision of Advancing Connected Care to the operating room. This technology, integrated into Hillrom's Global Surgical Solutions offerings as the Helion Integrated Surgical System, is now available in approximately 20 countries worldwide.
Hillrom's vendor-neutral Helion System balances patient safety with operational efficiency and throughput, seamlessly managing connections to OR equipment and multiple hospital systems. In addition to providing easy access to vital patient information inside the OR, Helion provides zero-latency analog- to 4K-capable live video and imaging feeds during procedures. The Helion System can be rapidly set-up in the OR, and features intuitive user controls and multiple networking options, providing high-quality, secure communication and collaboration inside and outside the OR.
