"As a patient, this technology would have changed my life."

By Becky Rowlands By Becky Rowlands

In this episode of CM Conversations, I was joined by Tim Fitzpatrick who is the CEO and Co-Founder of Ikona.

While serving in the US Navy, Tim suffered a flight-related injury that led to 18 life-altering months of surgeries and wound care.

Once recovered, he threw himself into equities trading on Wall Street where he met clinicians and researchers who were using virtual reality to transform the patient experience, and train healthcare providers.

Tim saw this as an opportunity to bring a kind of reassurance to patients that he’d lacked during his recovery.

So, in 2017, Tim launched IKONA with his two co-founders to combine clinical care, storytelling and neuroscience on a VR platform. Tim says this technology would have changed his life as a patient.

If you'd like to share your story with me or talk to me about technology that's exciting you in critical care, please email Becky.Rowlands@medical-cm.com.
