MILL5 Makes Over 3,000 Operating Rooms “AI-Smart” While Software Lives at the Edge
Learn how MILL5 revolutionized Olympus Corporation’s smart operating room video technology by integrating Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning into their suite of IoT applications. Our work with Olympus continues today as we support their team with various projects and our MSP services.
MILL5 partnered with Olympus Corporation to enhance their current smart operating room video technology, focused on situational awareness. By integrating AI intelligence and ML into Olympus’ suite of IoT software, MILL5 was able to improve operating room turnover time, reduce procedure times, and improve staff organization, while keeping video data securely at the Edge to allow for analysis. Due to the success of our implementation, MILL5 was engaged by Olympus to develop and deliver next-generation solutions across global surgical and non-surgical Olympus offerings. Additionally, MILL5 displaced existing vendors at Olympus to provide dataanalytics, Cloud and AI strategy and solutions, software solution development, M&A analysis, and MSP services for teams across the globe.
