KARL STORZ TIPCAM1 Rubina with ARTip SOLO Robotics Assistance Receives Innovative Tech Designation from Vizient

KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc., announced that its TIPCAM1 Rubina with ARTip SOLO robotic assistance has received an Innovative Technology designation from Vizient, Inc., the largest healthcare performance improvement company in the country. Each year, healthcare experts serving on Vizient member-led councils review select products and technologies for their potential to enhance clinical care, patient safety, and healthcare worker safety or to improve business operations of healthcare organizations. Innovative Technology designations are awarded to informK healthcare providers that these innovations can have a positive impact on patient care and business models.

TIPCAM1 Rubina is the only advanced endoscopic solution on the market that gives surgeons access to the most sophisticated visualization technologies of 4K imaging in 2D, 3D, and NIR/ICG, all in one video endoscope using ONE system, the KARL STORZ IMAGE1 S. The ARTip SOLO robotic camera guidance system, paired with the TIPCAM1 Rubina, allows the operating surgeon to maintain stability and precise control of the field of view. This improves the environment to train surgeons on technical skills, enabling them to operate alone—which can improve efficiency and lower overall costs. It also provides ideal ergonomics, especially in long procedures. Advanced technologies such as 4K 3D and 4K NIR/ICG provide the ability to visualize crucial details during surgery, often resulting in improved safety and outcomes. 3D has shown to improve task completion time by 64% (44 of 69 studies) and reduce errors by 63% (28 of 45 studies), especially where suturing is involved. NIR/ICG can reduce complication rates through assessment of blood flow and visualization of critical anatomy.

“KARL STORZ is committed to delivering quality products to allow for optimal surgical flow and advanced patient care. Desirable patient outcomes and improved surgeon ergonomics and autonomy, along with ease of setup enhancing operating room workflow, are just a few of the benefits offered by this innovative endoscopic solution,” said Aarathi Cholkeri-Singh, MD, medical director at KARL STORZ Endoscopy-America, Inc. “The advancement in imaging with streamlined robotic assistance allows for use across multiple surgical specialties, in both hospital and ambulatory care settings in rural and urban patient populations, providing equitable access to health care.”

“Healthcare experts on Vizient member councils evaluated TIPCAM1 Rubina with ARTip SOLO robotic assistance as part of the Innovative Technology Program,” said Kelly Flaharty, Vizient Senior Director of Contract Services. “This designation indicates TIPCAM1 Rubina with ARTip SOLO robotic assistance has one or more qualities that differentiate it from similar products and has potential to make an incremental improvement in healthcare. Congratulations to KARL STORZ.”
