He also was named runner-up for the BE Innovator of the Year Award for flourishing in an innovative industry in a groundbreaking manner via his company's products and services.
"I am deeply honored and blessed to be recognized by my global colleagues," said Redmon after being announced as the People's Choice winner by Earl Graves, Black Enterprise founder and publisher.
"This recognition and award has refueled a fire inside of me and everyone who works tirelessly day in and day out at StreamVenue Healthcare. This is only the beginning. Thank you to all who voted for us," said Redmon, who attended Morehouse College then later graduated from Northwood University.
StreamVenue Healthcare's solution ENDOCOM integrates into operating rooms existing hardware, connecting them to EndoCloud and StreamingOR services, Redmon said. Surgeons in several facilities nationwide, including Texas Institute for Surgery in Dallas, use the solutions daily. It is ideal for minimally invasive surgical procedures across multiple specialties like orthopedics, spine, ENT and ophthalmology, he added.
Redmon, 31, developed the innovative video technology that offers new options to doctors and patients allowing real-time broadcasts of high-definition surgical video. The software produces two images on the screen at all times: a wide shot of the surgeon operating and a view from inside the patient showing every move of the surgeon. The streaming video can be recorded automatically or viewed by anyone in the world with a computer and an access code to the live procedure.
The technology allows skilled surgeons to teach advanced surgical techniques to other surgeons and to residents. Physicians in hospitals with few experienced surgeons, rural areas and around the world, can view these techniques and can ask questions in real time.
There are benefits relative to liability management as well, Redmon said. Most medical malpractice suits are settled because definitive proof of what happened during surgery often is missing, Redmon explained following the Awards luncheon. "StreamingOR is better than a paper trail; it is a video trail." Redmon said we can expect to see more hospital patients request that their surgery be recorded and archived in the EndoCloud for electronic medical record purposes.
