The planning software developed by SeedIMPULSE relies on a three-dimensional CT imaging process. The system quickly provides the orthopaedic surgeon with the information they need to assess the condition of the joint and choose the most appropriate prosthesis. Clinics and surgeons pay a volume-based price for the software on a subscription basis.
The IT infrastructure needs to meet high standards. Julien von Siebenthal, CEO of SeedIMPULSE, explains: “We want to offer our customers permanent availability and maximum user-friendliness. Surgeons tend to give up quickly if something doesn’t work perfectly right away. We also need to meet strict regulatory standards, such as HIPAA for the protection of patient data and PCI for the payment process.”
Julien von Siebenthal describes the old Citrix-based solution as “unsuitable for start-ups”. It could take up too many resources that he would rather invest in software development. In order to reduce costs and, at the same time, radically simplify infrastructure operation, he turned to Amazon and Swisscom.
