The constantly growing number of medical devices and equipment used in the OR is a major challenge for OR and nursing staff. This is because, even in stressful situations, they have to be able to operate the equipment without making an error. Different user interfaces and systems that are not compatible with one another sometimes force the OR team into using awkward workflows.

With CuratOR Caliop, EIZO has developed an integration software that centralizes key OR-workflows on a single platform.

  • Simple and intuitive menu navigation
  • Manufacturer-independent integration
  • Designed for use with mouse and touchscreen as well as remotely (foot switch / endoscope head buttons)
  • Only one user interface is necessary
  • Modules can be added on and additional elements can be purchased later
  • Saves time and money
  • Uncomplicated administration
Caliop - Integration

Comprehensive Integration

CuratOR Caliop ensures seamless and manufacturer-independent interaction of the connected components in the OR. With its intuitive menu navigation, they can be managed quickly and from a central location. Additionally, Caliop offers comprehensive video management functionality and facilitates precise workflow planning.
Caliop - Usability Score

Caliop - Modules

Modular Design

CuratOR Caliop consists of a range of software elements that can be individually purchased in accordance with local needs. Collectively, these elements form the foundation of the modules, the locigal function blocks of the software. This means, Caliop can be easily  adapted to respective requirements on site and expanded at a later date if necessary.

Caliop - Basic Functions

Basic Functions

Irrespective of the locally installed elements, Caliop supports OR-workflows with a range of basic functions such as a configurable dashboard, stopwatches and timers, and display of running processes with their respective status. The design for the Caliop user interface can be individually selected in the dashboard.

Caliop - Videomanagement

Video Management (Caliop vm)

In addition to the Caliop basic functions, Caliop vm enables video management for the available sources. All image and video sources connected to the EIZO system are displayed in clearly arranged thumbnail images (or optionally with a fixed image). Furthermore, the connected display elements, such as external monitors, and the respectively available layouts are shown. At the click of a mouse or simple touch, a video source can be selected and assigned to the desired monitor or layout. Existing connections are indicated visually. The size of the displayed sources and the targets can be changed using the scaling buttons.

Caliop - Documentation

Documentation and Archiving (Caliop doc)

Caliop doc enables all available video sources to be documented and archived. The Patient Management module allows you to manage a list of patients. Patients can be created according to the existing data.
With the Video Management module, the available recording devices are displayed. Buttons can be used to start and stop recording of the assigned video sources.
Additional buttons are used to create snapshots during a recording.
The Archiving module shows all images that have been taken. The view can be individually adapted and filtered. From this list of the images taken, the user can select and display separately the recordings to be archived by mouse click or by touching the screen.

Caliop - Connection

Connection (Caliop con)

Caliop con establishes the software connection to the DICOM worklist and PACS as well as HL7 ADT/ORU. The  Connection module enables Caliop doc to be integrated into the hospital information system. Patient data therefore are available in Caliop without media disruption. As such, recorded videos and snapshots can be linked to the patient data of the hospital information system and archived. The connection via DICOM worklist and HL7 ADT/ORU supports the selection of patient data from the hospital‘s IT infrastructure. DICOM storage is used to export images generated during surgery. It is also possible to connect to non-medical archives.
