Oct 23, 2018
Alcon announces plan to develop the SMART Suite by Alcon, an innovative, digital platform that is designed to streamline, simplify and improve cataract surgery for surgeons and patients.
The SMART Suite by Alcon will connect multiple diagnostic and surgical devices through a digital, open cloud-based infrastructure that seamlessly integrates with practices’ existing cataract diagnostic equipment, electronic medical record (EMR) systems, and technologies in the Alcon Cataract Refractive Suite.
As envisioned, eye care professionals will have easy access to patients’ vital diagnostic data throughout the cataract procedure, providing a simplified clinical process, consistency and greater efficiency. The cloud-based data will help eye care professionals analyze and optimize procedures with increased precision, driving improved patient outcomes.
“The SMART Suite by Alcon will be an important addition to our market-leading cataract refractive equipment portfolio and it builds on our existing cloud-based technologies like the ORA System,” said Michael Onuscheck, President, Global Business & Innovation at Alcon
The SMART Suite by Alcon will be built on the Philips HealthSuite digital platform, which provides the proven expertise and regulatory compliance for cloud-based services and technical tools that will enable SMART Suite to fit seamlessly into customers’ practices.

Alcon plans to announce additional details on the SMART Suite in mid-2019. The SMART Suite will be fully compatible with currently available surgical equipment, including the Alcon Cataract Refractive Suite.
