Adaptiiv collaborates

Adaptiiv Medical Technologies Inc. is collaborating with HP Inc. and Varian, a Siemens Healthineers company to advance the quality of and access to personalized cancer care for U.S. patients with 3D printed medical devices.

HP's Multi Jet Fusion platform provides access to leading 3D printing technology that is used to produce high-quality, flexible, patient-specific parts at high throughput. HP 3D printing is suitable for use in healthcare because of the speed, quality, and economic advantages gained through HP's scalable manufacturing processes.

"The combined technology scale of HP and Varian, along with the leading-edge personalization workflow of Adaptiiv, provides the improved solution that clinicians and patients deserve," said Louis Kim, Vice President, 3D Printing at HP. HP is proud to be a part of this collaboration to help advance the treatment of cancers worldwide."

Adaptiiv will also work with Varian to expand access to personalized, patient-specific 3D printed medical devices. For more than 70 years, Varian has developed, built, and delivered innovative cancer care technologies and solutions for clinical partners around the globe to help them treat millions of patients each year. This agreement advances Varian's commitment to meeting evolving customer needs and improving the patient experience. 

"We are energized by Adaptiiv's innovation and this opportunity with HP to further expand our cancer care ecosystem. Addressing our customers' needs is our top priority, and we are confident that this commercial commitment will help us do just that by advancing interoperability with Adaptiiv's 3D printed medical devices for external beam radiation therapy,"

Ben Moga, Director, Strategic Alliances and Synergy Investments at Varian

Earlier this year, Adaptiiv received U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance for the Adaptiiv On Demand service to manufacture and deliver 3D printed patient-specific medical devices. 3D printed medical devices conform to patient anatomy thereby improving the accuracy of dose delivery while the integration of Adaptiiv software into clinical workflows provides improved efficiencies, such as reducing patient set up time both in CT simulation and on the treatment unit.

"This is a tremendous milestone for Adaptiiv's vision to democratize personalization in radiation treatment," said Adaptiiv CEO, Alex Dunphy. "Collaborating with brands like HP and Varian who stand for quality and innovation will ensure our solutions reach patients around the world. The last mile of radiation therapy needs to evolve and our solutions provide greater access to personalized care, while improving treatment and creating workflow efficiencies for cancer centres around the world."

About Adaptiiv
Adaptiiv Medical Technologies Inc. has a software platform that works in conjunction with 3D printing to create medical devices for use in radiation oncology. Adaptiiv is shaping the future of personalized healthcare through innovation and collaboration with industry leaders throughout the world.

Airrosti and Luna Partner to Improve Access for Musculoskeletal Care providing virtual care solution

Luna | November 11, 2021

Luna, the leading provider of on-demand physical therapy, today announced a partnership with Airrosti, a national provider of high-quality, outcome-based musculoskeletal (MSK) care, to offer in-person, at-home physical therapy services to complement the Airrosti Remote Recovery (ARR) virtual care solution. Using Luna's in-person, on-demand physical therapy services platform, Airrosti can immediately expand access to convenient, high-quality, at-home care for patients in the 46 states currently covered by ARR. The primary challenge faced by purely digital MSK offerings today lies in care coordination. No two patients are alike, and while many respond well to a virtual clinic experience, others require in-person care. However, for many patients, travelling to a clinic consistently for an extended period is inconvenient––or even impossible. For these patients and in markets where Airrosti doesn't have clinics, the Airrosti and Luna partnership is particularly important. "As a provider group who is delivering care nationally, we needed a partner solution to best serve our virtual patients that may require in-person conservative care or physical therapy," said Chris Cato, D.C., chief population health officer for Airrosti. "This alliance with Luna provides timely and efficient access to high-quality care that improves clinical efficacy and drives better outcomes. And, from a service delivery standpoint, this relationship significantly enhances Airrosti's ability to rapidly ramp up in-person service in new markets as requested by our carrier and employer partners." As an extension of Airrosti Remote Recovery, patients will gain the opportunity to use Luna's technology platform to request an appointment and then be matched to a local therapist based on specialty, geography, schedule, and other factors. Through the Luna partnership, ARR patients can expect: To begin treatment within 48 hours of referral In-person delivery at the patient's home, gym, or office 45 to 55 minutes of dedicated 1:1 time with a licensed physical therapist per visit Comprehensive MSK treatment––Luna's model of care supports 87%+ of all patients needing outpatient physical therapy A 50% higher adherence rate than in-clinic PT visits "Airrosti recognizes that virtual care––and especially physical therapy––requires a customized, patient-centric approach to help improve outcomes. The hybrid virtual/in-person model made possible by this partnership will not only expand access to safe, convenient, high-quality care for more people nationwide, but will help ensure that more patients complete their PT regimens and regain the quality of life they need." Palak Shah, co-founder and head of clinical operations at Luna To learn more about Airrosti's virtual MSK offerings, visit the Remote Recovery resource page. For more information on how Luna helps clinics expand the reach and profitability of their operations, visit the Physical Therapy Practices resource page. About Airrosti Airrosti Rehab Centers (Airrosti), is a national health care group that employs and trains skilled providers who specialize in delivering high-quality, outcome-based musculoskeletal care, both in person and virtually through their digital healthcare solution, Airrosti Remote Recovery (ARR). Airrosti Remote Recovery is the only virtual MSK solution supported by a provider group with over 1 million patient outcomes and 17 years of clinical experience. The company's strict adherence to quality care standards across its provider network significantly reduces costs and recovery times for patients and prevents unnecessary MRIs, pharmaceuticals, and surgeries.

Airrosti is currently available in 46 states including the District of Columbia and has over 200 brick-and-mortar locations across Texas, Virginia, Ohio, and Washington.

It also makes it easier to expand resources and technologies like DRaaS and BaaS, all monitored and managed over a single pane of glass in a compliant environment that meets and exceeds regulatory requirements such as HIPAA.” iland President and Co-founder Brian Ussher Based on his experience with the iland Secure Cloud, Bilker said Pyramid Healthcare is evaluating iland’s DRaaS to help protect the company’s data and operations during times of disaster and cybercrime with the visibility and manageability offered over the Secure Cloud Console. “iland gives us the flexibility we need to change and add to our infrastructure to address our immediate needs or what lies ahead,” he said. “If you’re looking for a partner that can provide an IaaS platform that has high availability at a reasonable cost and the flexibility to adapt to changing business needs, iland is a phenomenal choice.” About iland iland is a global cloud service provider of secure and compliant hosting for infrastructure (IaaS), disaster recovery (DRaaS) and backup as a service (BaaS).
