Deborah Theobald Delivers Talk on Improving Quality of Healthcare with Robotics at MassTLC Executive Summit

Cambridge, MA; : Deborah Theobald, CEO and Chairwoman of Vecna Technologies, joined a panel of executives from prominent healthcare robotics companies in Boston, MA to explore the current and future role of robots in improving and delivering effective, innovative care. This symposium examined the ways in which current applications of robotics to surgical, rehabilitative, and therapeutic procedures could reduce surgical risk, facilitate post-operative recovery, and expand the reach of healthcare providers through remote and telepresent control of robots in the home. Ms. Theobald’s talk highlighted Vecna’s work in developing robotic platforms for integration into hospital workflows and logistics processes. Robots such as Vecna’s QC Bot™ platform could harness the precision and speed offered by automation for daily use by healthcare providers. In response to the current push by the US Government for providers to rely on Electronic Health Records (EHR) to digitize patient records and minimize errors in prescribing and administering medication, these robots are being developed to interface with hospital databases and assure that the right dose of the right medication reaches the right patient at the right time. “Robotics will revolutionize the way we provide healthcare by enhancing and augmenting the abilities of caregivers, surgeons, and therapists,” said Ms. Theobald. “In the coming years, healthcare providers will face a number of new challenges; they will need these advanced technologies to deliver superior care to those who need it most.”
