Technology of Japanese start-up featured by doctors (Series ＃13）
The second part: OPExPARK, creating a world where doctors can access the best surgery anywhere by digitizing the operating room
Further progress by opeXpark and future challenges
OPExPARK Inc. has another surgical education service called “opeXpark.” This service is a digital textbook platform that enables doctors to share the surgical process.
Until now, there has been no way to learn surgical know-how other than in the field. However, with “opeXpark,” the strategy, know-how, and equipment information necessary for surgery can be used as a digital textbook. Furthermore, it will be possible to experience the surgery from anywhere in the world. By doing so, we aim to equalize treatment in countries where there is a shortage of medical advisors.
“opeXpark” allows users to learn intraoperative decisions and strategies through surgical information, including unedited videos and comments from the surgeon. We can meet the needs of a wide range of doctors, from young doctors to specialists and skilled doctors, and we aim to become a platform for doctors around the world.
Comparing the surgical doctors when I became a doctor with today's, I realize that learning surgical techniques has evolved. We may see the emergence of surgeons who can skillfully use this kind of medical IT in the future.
Here, we asked Dr. Yasunori Honda, President and CEO of OPExPARK Inc., a few questions.
Q1. What was your first thought when you saw this technology and your envisioned future when you joined this project?
Dr. Honda: “I felt that the potential for vendor-free use of data from surgical records and the ability to provide solutions was tremendous. On the other hand, I felt that the business model would require some innovations, including that the data business is quite difficult in Japan today. I just wanted to change and will change the analogue environment of hospital operations that I felt.”
