Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, has announced the opening of its Digital Platform Services Centre of Excellence in Dublin, Ireland, and a strategic collaboration with RCSI (Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland) to develop digital solutions for use in emergency and specialist care settings to provide more seamless care coordination for patients suffering from time critical medical emergencies.

Stryker will locate its Digital Platform Services Innovation and Ideation Hub in RCSI’s Smurfit Educational and Research Centre, located on the Beaumont Hospital campus. The collaboration will focus on developing digitally enabled care products and performance metrics to deliver better patient outcomes. These tools will benefit patients by improving access to consistent, high quality care, and provide healthcare providers with more accurate information to better inform resource deployment.

“RCSI has a proud legacy of over 230 years of clinical innovation as well as unrivalled expertise in surgical training and practice,” said Prof Cathal Kelly, RCSI CEO.  “Today, our dynamic research culture has a global reach, driving discoveries and innovations that enhance patient care and outcomes.  Engaging with industry is an integral part of our research culture and partnerships, such as the one announced today with Stryker, are vitally important to delivering on our mission to improve human health and patient outcomes on a global scale.”

“We recognize the importance of being deeply connected to healthcare professionals to understand their challenges and gather insights to develop solutions that drive value and improve patient outcomes,” said Shaun Braun, Vice President of Digital Platform Services at Stryker. “This partnership will enable knowledge sharing and ensure we are grounded in clinical reality as we build digital products that make a difference for our customers and their patients.”
