surgeon assistant app

About the project

Our client is a Switzerland-based company creating a digital assistant for surgeons based on the best practices of military aviation. 

The company helps optimize the operation process and organize all the necessary information for surgeons and the medical staff.

The digital assistant helps minimize preparation and paperwork so doctors can focus on saving the lives of their patients.

The main goals of the product are to improve standards in operations significantly and to train surgeons better.

Our client came to Syndicode with a need to accelerate the backend and frontend development of the digital doctor app.

The app consists of a web app for comprehensive planning and an IOS app that accompanies the operation. Since 2020, medical specialists’ training and procedures have happened using this web & mobile app.

  1. Solution delivered

    Syndicode has provided custom software development services to the client. With a web platform, a surgeon plans the upcoming operation, the backend obtains data for iOS and web, and the IOS platform assists in the actual procedure.

  2. Challenges overcomed

    The main challenge was creating a product that affects human lives. It was crucial for the Syndicode team to delve deep into the surgical operations process and consider each app’s feature meticulously. The result is software that helps surgeons and medical staff be more productive.

  3. Value added

    Currently, the digital assistant is practically applied in training and actual operations. In addition, the Inselspital center in Switzerland has training operating rooms where students use the app in practice.

  • Template library of standard operations

    The standard operations template library helps reduce preparation and plan better.

    Moreover, this feature adds a structured, systematic, and well-documented approach to the OP process.

    By allowing surgeons to choose a ready-made protocol, the library reduces the chance of accidental inconsistencies.

  • History of operations

    Digital assistant stores the data about all conducted operations in one single system.

    Here, surgeons can access info about the duration, any incidents, and – another crucial index – the average delay per operation.

    History of operations
  • Incident report form

    In military aviation, pilots record every case of even a minor oversight.

    This platform uses the same approach for OP planning, execution, and reporting.

    Each incident is described in detail and stored in the database so doctors can familiarize themselves and draw conclusions.
