Kortrijk, Belgium, 22 April 2021 – Global visualization and collaboration leader Barco innovates in remote healthcare today, launching NexxisLive, a flexible collaboration solution for surgery. NexxisLive is an intuitive, secure cloud-based software platform that makes it possible to involve the right people for any type of surgical intervention, wherever they are.
As in many other professions, remote collaboration provides surgeons with a quick and flexible solution to offer or consult medical and technical knowledge, without losing time or needing travel. Teleassistance, teleconferencing, and telementoring: NexxisLive supports it all, in a strongly secured environment. The software platform enables participants anywhere to talk, chat and annotate as if they're all in the same operating room, with excellent audio and video quality, and minimal latency.

Accelerated by the Covid-19 crisis, a rapidly growing number of hospitals worldwide is taking the step towards remote surgical training, assistance and conferencing. With a shortage of medical expertise in multiple fields, virtual solutions offer an easy way to access expert knowledge at the very moment that it’s needed, from anywhere in the world. At the same time, rapid advancements in medical technology urge surgical departments to keep up with innovations, encouraging surgeons to embrace them rapidly.
As a result, the advantages of remotely involving other surgeons in complicated procedures are proving their worth, as well as those of remotely teaching students. Virtually, students can follow more types of interventions in a live environment and communicate with other participants in real-time. Also, the number of people present can be much higher than in a physical OR. Not to mention, it’s possible to greatly improve patient outcomes by having experts immediately called in during surgeries, no matter where they are.
NexxisLive: remote collaboration for better patient outcomes
Davide Nocentini, VP of Surgical Imaging at Barco, says: “At Barco, we are fully aware that virtual collaboration in medical environments is here to stay. So today, we’re launching NexxisLive, a solution that addresses the challenges of remote collaboration in surgical environments. NexxisLive is available for all ORs anywhere, not only the ones equipped with Nexxis technology. We took this decision in order to reach, and provide opportunities for more surgeons around the world, helping them to deliver better care for their patients. Achieving better patient outcomes is the ultimate goal, and we strive to support the clinical staff, in any way we can. That is our mission, that is what we do.”
