A Strategic Partnership

The 4 Medical IT Alliance has been formed to bring hospitals around the world a state-of-the-art integrated eco-system for the efficient control and operability of operating rooms and other patient care areas.

We have created the world’s first ‘open’ standards-based integrated theatre control system based on the revolutionary SDVoE Alliance 4K video over IP technology with integrated data services. 

We are committed to combining and sharing research and development efforts to rapidly expand the eco-system with data-rich services and innovation for unparalleled performance, interoperability, affordability and proven reliability. 

The 4 Medical IT Alliance partners are excited to engage with leading medical OEM companies and system integrators to deliver innovative solutions to hospitals globally.


Open Architecture

Using open IP standards as a policy rather than proprietary control systems, as is the current status of all OR Control systems, the 4 Medical IT Alliance system will plug and play with all endoscopes, robots and imaging devices and interoperate and exchange data with efficiency planning applications, HIS/EPR/EMR and monitoring systems.

“Having created many proprietary systems in the past for my clients, it has long been a vision to create an operating room control system that embraces an open-architecture to remove the lock-in of proprietary control, finally offering surgeons choice, interoperability and data acquisition for performance improving applications.”

Colin Dobbyne, managing director of 4 Medical IT Alliance member, Big Blue Solutions
