June 8, 2011 - Brainlab announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Voyant Health.
Voyant Health's core technology, TraumaCad, allows orthopedic surgeons to access patient images online and to plan and digitally template surgical procedures from anywhere - the clinic, the home, the hospital or the operating room (OR). Another key technology is VoyantLink, which makes it easier for hospitals and care providers to obtain diagnostic images from their referral network. It eliminates the cumbersome and time-consuming manual transfer of images by CDs, and allows fast, easy and secure transfer of images through the Web to the hospital without VPNs or other expensive middleware. Images are uploaded by the referring center using a secure VoyantLink website, which are then sent automatically to the hospital PACS.
Voyant Health's technology complements Brainlab in several ways. Brainlab will create new possibilities in orthopedics with the integration of TraumaCad and OrthoWeb with Brainlab orthopedic surgical navigation technology. VoyantLink will expand the framework for Quentry, the groundbreaking online network for physicians developed by Brainlab.
Starting in July 2009, Munich-based Brainlab and Tel Aviv-based Voyant Health began a partnership to broaden the reach of surgical planning by improving and easing access to images. When combining Voyant Health's orthopedic templating product with Digital Lightbox by Brainlab, the companies saw more opportunities.
