Brainlab acquires VisionTree to drive patient-reported outcomes

Jan. 24, 2020

Brainlab announced the acquisition of VisionTree Software, Inc. The acquisition furthers Brainlab’s commitment to quantifying medical procedure outcomes by taking a closer look at patients’ quality of life and condition after treatment.

VisonTree’s established ePRO solution will complement the Brainlab cloud-based infrastructure and registry solution aiming to deliver patient engagement and even more comprehensive quality reporting. Brainlab is committed to establishing a digital benchmark for medical data registries including medical image data to create a new standard for quality of care, quality control and research.

“I believe that patient data must ultimately be controlled by the patient. The acquisition of VisionTree adds a tool to our portfolio that will give the patient more control over the data that is generated by our systems for the benefit of better treatment,” said Stefan Vilsmeier, Brainlab President and Chief Executive Officer.

Brainlab will continue to invest in the VTOC platform aiming to facilitate data collection across all available sources including smart devices and wearables. At the same time, Brainlab will further enhance the VisionTree patient portal and enable patients to control the handling and processing of their data. By combining VTOC with its software ecosystem, Brainlab plans to offer streamlined and paperless workflows that combine patient-reported outcomes with anatomical information, treatment plans and surgical events to its more than 5,000 customers worldwide.
