From Surgical Consent to Concentric

From Surgical Consent to Concentric

by Dafydd Loughran, CEO
January 2019

Concentric, the new product name for Surgical Consent, and a name that allows us to grow. The opportunities for technology to support decision-making are far broader than consent, and certainly not limited to just surgery. It’s where we started, but the lessons learnt can be applied widely.

We liked Concentric as a name, with a nod to the old, but alluding to the parallel opportunities for the consent process to be a starting point to better decisions and better care. From facilitating shared decision making, collecting patient outcomes, and guiding discussions.

I’m delighted to also announce InnovateUK grant funding to accelerate the delivery of a valuable platform for both patients and clinicians, in the UK and globally. Initially building upon our pilot consent platform, we’re building functionality to the Concentric Ontology and adding integration capabilities to make the process of starting, and continuing, to use Concentric a pleasure for our users.

We’re looking for a number of key hires to help us deliver above and beyond our ambitions. Visit our careers page to read the job descriptions (software development and designer roles currently) if you think you, or someone you know, could be exactly who we’re looking for.
