Brainlab Buys VisionTree


Brainlab, a Munich, Germany-based digital medical technology company, acquired VisionTree Software, Inc., a San Diego based developer of cloud-based, patient-centric data collection and health management solutions.

The amount of the deal was not disclosed.

The acquisition enables Brainlab to expand its commitment to quantifying medical procedure outcomes by taking a closer look at patients’ quality of life and condition after treatment.

Today, Brainlab’s software is digitally entrenched in a growing number of critical treatment workflows, generating an array of structured, validated, digital data. This workflow data is correlated with detailed anatomical data. This effort is now enhanced by VisionTree, which provides:

  • tools and standardized forms for collecting granular and structured outcomes data directly from consenting patients to more than 600 global healthcare providers and 2.5 million patients,
  • the VisionTree Optimal Care (VTOC) platform that has integration capabilities with electronic health record (EHR), research and registry platforms.

The established ePRO solution will complement the Brainlab cloud-based infrastructure and registry solution aiming to deliver patient engagement and more comprehensive quality reporting.

Led by Stefan Vilsmeier, President and Chief Executive Officer, Brainlab will continue to invest in the VTOC platform aiming to facilitate data collection across all available sources including smart devices and wearables.

At the same time, Brainlab will further enhance the VisionTree patient portal and enable patients to control the handling and processing of their data. By combining VTOC with its software ecosystem, Brainlab plans to offer streamlined and paperless workflows that combine patient-reported outcomes with anatomical information, treatment plans and surgical events to its more than 5,000 customers worldwide.
