The ImmersiveTouch Team @Chicago

Our Mission

We Are Here to Serve the Patient

We believe in a world where patient care is no longer pre-determined by the limitations of current tools. We create platforms that enhance physician capabilities, evolve minimally invasive techniques, and create new categories of care that redefine optimal patient outcomes. This is our mission.

 

Our Story

Over the past 50 years, the introduction of new imaging technologies has ushered in the era of personalized medicine. Although CT & MRI were first introduced in the 1970s, it is only in 2019 that we are now able to unlock the full potential of data stored inside each scan.

Through its immersive VR platform, ImmersiveTouch is empowering clinicians with greater precision and consistency of care by accessing new insights from patient scans. The Company’s proprietary platform improves upon existing advanced visualization techniques by integrating artificial intelligence, computer vision, surgical simulation and virtual reality.

ImmersiveTouch is led by Dr. Pat Banerjee, a professor emeritus and visionary entrepreneur with an unrelenting passion and drive for improving patient outcomes. Dr. Banerjee pioneered the field of enterprise virtual reality, starting with his first research lab in 1995 where he applied VR for Caterpillar, Motorola, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the National Institutes of Health. Under Dr. Banerjee’s leadership, ImmersiveTouch is committed to tackling some of the biggest problems in healthcare.

Personalized medicine is our top priority. ImmersiveTouch designed its technology to simulate each patient’s unique pathology in 3D so that no information from the 2D scan data is lost in translation. Patient data lost in translation costs the healthcare system billions of dollars from longer procedure times, sub-optimal patient outcomes and readmissions.
