Communications equipment expert CompView, of Beaverton, Oregon, has launched a new subsidiary to focus on integrated operating room solutions. CompView Medical is based around the company's Digital Operating Control System (DOCS), an integrated audio, video, communication and control system designed for the surgical environment in which data can be transferred digitally from the operating room to a centralised hub. The company is completing installation of its DOCS suite at Providence St Vincent Medical Center in Portland, Oregon, and sees good potential in a market that it says was worth more than $100m in 2003 and predicted to grow at 18% a year until 2008.
