EOS imaging, a provider of 2D and 3D orthopedic medical imaging solutions, has signed a corporate agreement with Germany’s Schön Kliniken Hospital Network. As a result, the vendor’s EOS platform could become the standard of care for treating the hospital network’s orthopedic patients. The EOS imaging’s 3D models and new suite of 3D surgical planning solutions—which were acquired by the hospital network earlier this year—are suited for young patients who often need ongoing imaging monitoring and follow-up.
“We decided to invest in the EOS technology because we believe the accurate and holistic measurements of spine problems, especially scoliosis, will improve the clinical outcomes for our patients,” says Carla Naumann, a Schön Kliniken board member.
Serving more than 100,000 patients each year, the 17 Schön Kliniken hospitals have a significant presence in the German market. The health care network, which specializes in orthopedics, neurology, and pediatric care, anticipates opening an additional site in England in the near future.
“We’re enthusiastic about the choice of the Schön Kliniken network to start adopting EOS as a standard of care,” says EOS imaging CEO Marie Meynadier. “Their focus on value-based health care and enhancing medical outcomes via measurement is a strong endorsement of the value of our technology and contributes to our current growing momentum in the German market.”
