California Pacific Medical Center – Interventional Endoscopy Services
DCA has been a critical partner with the Paul May and Frank Stein Interventional Endoscopy Services (IES) facility at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco in its goal of providing educational opportunities and sharing procedural advancements with the global endoscopy and GI community.
Led by Dr. Kenneth Binmoeller, a forward-thinking, internationally recognized leader in interventional endoscopy diagnosis and treatments, the IES center was not engineered for high-technology AV upgrades when it was built. Therefore, Dr. Binmoeller’s vision of highlighting IES’s procedures via the internet would mean upgrading IES’s technical components in order to support high quality video production in a working medical facility.
Dr. Binmoeller sought to film procedures and provide educational content utilizing IES nurses, staff and equipment, while not interfering with their work. He called on DCA to tightly embed an AV system within the clinical workflow so as not to interfere with day-to-day operations throughout the medical facility.
DCA responded by designing a sophisticated, custom AV solution that has been expanded over time. One unique feature is in-room webcasting, which allows real-time viewing of procedures from the IES procedure rooms via the internet for authorized viewers; content comes directly from instrumentation and endoscopic cameras.
In support of this client’s unique objectives, DCA provides production assistance to IES during special events that feature live, high-definition worldwide broadcasts.
